Space:Did you know that Cool Scrapbook Stuff

DO! Ask to become a “friend”
for special coupons and notification of sales!
OH! And send me a quick note, too, so that I know that it is not spam!!!
That way you will get added quicker!
that a lot of you have been asking if we are planning anything for the fire
victims. I have posted it before, but in case you haven’t seen it – yes. I
have been working with the Mayor’s Office in Poway
plus I am coordinating with about 40 stores from LA on down plus about a
dozen manufacturers to create an event called “Operation Replenish”.
will be collecting unused paper & stickers (etc) and gently used tools
from anyone who wishes to donate. They will be given to those who suffered
we have been given permission by Rite Aid to use the vacant space in our
shopping center. We are planning the event for the middle of February now,
so start collecting items that you wish to donate!

& December Summary (combined):
·19 new product & information
updates posted to “What’s New”
·2211 brand new items in inventory (not
to mention all of the reorder items!) AND, that doesn’t break out all of
the Creative Café various items!
·Quickutz – it was their new
valentine’s release in the box. I’m not sure when we are “supposed” to put
it out, but we put it out yesterday.
·7Gypsie’s – we received several
of their popular ATC card holders. Plus we got a few additional accessories
for the ATC holder.

can save up to 30% on your entire shopping spree. Very few items are
excluded! Plus, we have Mimi totes at 50% off and Boxed Christmas cards at
are closing early at 6pm this evening and will be closed tomorrow (New
Year’s Day). We will reopen on the 2nd and resume our usual hours.
We are still
checking in our last few boxes of the year!And it took most of Friday and all day Saturday, but we have the Creative Café FINALLY out!
I had been putting it off since early November
b/c I knew it would be a nightmare of epic proportions and, unfortunately,
I was right!
we have it all and are working on getting it priced and out. FYI – RE: the
Buttons by the scoop… We are selling the buttons by the 4oz container, not
the 2oz scoop. So, while they might seem a little bit more expensive, the
MSRP on the 2oz scoop is $2.99 ($1.50 per oz) and we have the 4oz container
for only $4.99 ($1.25 per oz). But you can mix and match colors to get up
to your 4oz. you can seal the container and keep it in your shopping basket
while you shop around. And we will package them when you check out. We hope
it will be easier for you!
And that should wrap up 2007! Can you believe that it is
almost New Year’s????

your point of view! LOL.
we aren’t going to get Martha Stewarts new products. I have cancelled the

REALLY sorry for the change! I just can’t do it. First, I have a problem
with companies who change their rules for only half of the “players” in the
middle of the “game”. Plus, given that her products are exclusive to so few
locations, and can be somewhat pricey, and *I* can’t choose what I’m going
to carry, I just would feel awkward selling it when you can get it at a
SERIOUS discount at Michael’s.
GOOD – it seems that you all enjoyed the sale that we had in preparation
for her arrival, so that one’s on me! J

moved in the fall of 2004! We are now just diagonally across the street into the
Michael’s & Jo-Ann’s shopping center. Our new location is MORE THAN THREE
TIMESthe size of the old space!
Our new address is 12305 Poway Road.
We are in the free-standing building along Poway Road in
the north-western corner of the parking lot (formerly was Ortho Mattress).
I cannot tell you how
excited I am! From 300 square feet within my ex-husband’s store… to 700
square feet on Poway Road near Community… to 1,100 square feet where we
were... and now to 4,800 (3,600 is dedicated to retail space!) in our new
We have the largest
selection of products in San Diego!
And I have my amazing
customers and fantastic staff to thank for it!
And, did you know that our
store is organized by TOPIC? It makes it SO much easier for you to find
what you are looking for and to see all items in a theme at one glance! We

Don’t worry, things like
Basic Grey, Wild Asparagus, Chatterbox, Bohemia, Magnolia, etc, are all kept
together for those who shop by brand! These are “collections” and it would
make no sense to split them up! J
