Another enormous rubber stamp & craft supplies sale



One of my best friends (formerly a 101 teacher at Stampassion) is undertaking the enormous challenge of turning her basement into an inlaw apartment, and has to make room by seriously cleaning out her beloved supply of rubber stamps and craft supplies. (I know -- exhanging her precious art supplies for inlaws? Not exactly a fair exchange.) Since my home is centrally located and I have side street parking, I've offered my house as the location for her sale. I may even toss a few items from my over-full craft room into the mix (although that's still up in the air -- I'm very attached.)
I cannot tell you how amazing her collection is, and she is prepared to part with it for a fraction of the original prices. Hundreds of the stamps (and there are MANY hundreds, if not thousands) are brand-spanking new. Below I have also listed some of the other items you will find at this sale. I also took a few quick pictures of just some of what will be there.
You are all invited to stop by, and please spread the word to anyone else that you think might be interested.
If I have a chance, we will also be offering little goodies & surprises for everyone who stops by --
