    Don't forget...our FLEA MARKET is TOMORROW!! Sat., 9/19 from 10am-4pm

    Finally, all the boxes have been unpacked. All the bags unloaded. All the totes, paper, embellishments (of every kind imaginable!), idea books, tools....I could go on and on...have been set up for our flea market. It's tomorrow, Sat., Sept. 19. Doors open at 10am and close at 4pm. In the past years, people have started lining up early to get the best deals. Just an FYI...

    The Flea Market will be held in the large crop room behind our store (not in our store).

    Also, here are a few details about tomorrow -

    1) If you have a reusable shopping bag, please bring it. Save a tree!
    2) NO checks. Cash only up to $50.00. Credit cards okay on purchases over $50.00 (we have to run those charges back at the store, so cash is faster!). 
    3) Absolutely no refunds or returns on items once purchased. Check all items carefully.
    4) Please DO NOT open any sealed packages.
    5) To ensure that customers get a chance to look at ALL the amazing items that'll be for sale at the Flea Market, we ask that shoppers don't pull lots of items to decide whether they will purchase them later. This isn't fair for the other shoppers who may want those items or the seller who'd like to sell their items. Thanks for your understanding!

    It can get pretty crowded, so be prepared. We will all be working as fast as we possibly can, but due to the large number of shoppers, you may have to wait a bit. We really appreciate your patience!

    When you're done, be sure to stop by the store. We have TONS of new products that have been rolling in over the past few weeks and you won't want to miss those. Also, check out our clearance table in the store. It'll be a day of great buys and bargains!

    Bring a friend (or 10!) and we'll see you all Saturday morning!!
