A Fundraiser for Trace Elementary School and a "Bucket List" Project for Tim Holtz

We're having a fundraiser to help out Trace Elementary School in San Jose. As you may remember, the school was devastated by a fire this past summer. They lost classrooms and their library among other things. We'd love to help out and what better way than a sale!

We've also been trying to get Tim Holtz to come to the Island and we need your help! See below for details.

Here's How The Fundraiser Will Work...

All the items that were donated from our Flea Market will be for sale - at HALF OFF the marked price! Everything will be on the back tables in the store starting Tuesday, Sept. 21 through Friday, Sept. 24. The sale will also include store clearance items at 75% off.

At the conclusion of the sale, Scrapbook Island will write a check out directly to Trace Elementary School for the proceeds from the sale of the donated Flea Market items.

Come in early for best selection.

***If you come in during the day to crop, please call ahead first to see if there is space as the tables will be filled with sale items.***

All sale items are final sales. No returns or exchanges. No punch points will be given for sale items.

Help us get TIM HOLTZ to visit The Island by filling our "Bucket"

We've been trying for a LONG time to get Tim Holtz to visit us. He's been VERY busy, but we're still trying! Here's where you can help!

Stop by The Island and pick up a free tag. Embellish the tag on the front any way you choose (I'm sure using Tim Holtz products will be very persuasive). On the back, list your "bucket reasons" why Tim should come to The Island. Be creative and use your best words of persuasion and encouragement! Bring it back to the store before December 15th and drop it in our special "Tim Holtz Bucket".

In January, Laurie will take the bucket overflowing with beautiful tags to CHA and present it to Tim! How can he resist after that...right!?

So stop by and pick up a tag or 2 (or 3...or more!) and get creative!

Day Cropping Info for Week of Sept. 20-24

We have quite a few people who come in during the day and crop - which is awesome! We just wanted to give you all a heads up for what's happening this week. We have a big event in the store beginning Tues., Sept. 21 - Fri., Sept. 24 (check your email later today for details). We'll be using a lot of the table space in the crop area in the store, which will limit day cropping space.
