Okay ladies this is long over due, the time has come for the QUEEN of hoarding to GIVE UP some STUFF!

On Sat. July 29th(10:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m.)in Camrose, I will host a Stampin'/Scrappin' GARAGE SALE. This sale will include 90+ retired stamp sets, and a huge lot of scrapbooking goodies.

More details coming soon, watch this post for daily updates.

Update 1: If you would like to sell some of your goodies(stampin'/scrappin' only please), and are able to bring them to Camrose priced and ready for the sale by 9:00 a.m. Sat. morning please contact me A.S.A.P. There will be NO commision charge or any such fee to participate in the sale.........but I WILL take CHOCOLATE(kidding LOL)!

Update 2: If you are reading this and have crafty friends please pass this link onto them!

Update 3: Cash only.....PLEASE! All prices listed are CAD. Prices subject without noitce.

Update 4: There will be no pre-sale sales, doors will open at 10:00 a.m. sharp.

Update 5: Saving(pricing)will vary depending on products. If you are aware of the retiring stamp set process you will know some stamp sets that become VERY rare once they are retired, and in turn increase in $$ value. In this case ssome stamp sets may be priced above the regular price, to be determined by their value on good ole ebay! In any case you will not pay ANY shipping & handling, or g.s.t. charges. Most standard retired sets(not the RARE ones) will be priced a minimum of 10% off depending on their condidtion. Take into consideration no shipping & handling, g.s.t. and you will be saving at least 27%.

Update 6: Garage sale inventory will include new & used products, ALL are sold AS IS!

Update 7: I've had requests for a list of what will be at the sale, sorry ladies there is much to much stuff(and no time)for me to compile a list. I will include some of the products as I update, but keep in mind it will only be a snip-it of what will be at the sale. I am more than happy to answer any questions you may have, please post your questions in the comments section of the blog.

Update 8: July 24th THE SCOOP

10)Chatterbox wooden frames & tags........TONS!!!! 25 cents each

11)10+ Sarabinders(3 sizes)

12)Scrapbooking Kits-includes pattern paper, cardstock, and embellsihments

13)20+ punches(all used)

14)Attention owners of die cut machines-A while back I came across a gold mine at a garage sale..............a gentleman who did framing as a small business/hobby was selling off all his mat pieces............TONS!!!! I of course wanted some to use on my Sizzix machine, BUT NOT ALL! He of course wanted to sell it as a LOT, and didn't want to break it into pieces. Well needless to say I bought it, and now have a TON of mat board. There is every color under the sun, and I am sure no two pieces are the same size. Anyway, I brought it home and tried cutting with my Sizzix, and it works like a charm.........especially on tags/simple shapes! I will never use all of it(in the next 100 years), so I am selling some of it off at my garage sale. $1 per sheet



Update 9: July 25th-Please note that most prices are waaaaay below retail(priced to SELL), therefore are not negotiable. I have decided items do not sell will be donated to either a local youth group, woman's shelter, or senior centre.

Update 10: July 27th-things are going pretty good, I am feeling pretty organized!

As with any garage sale you just never know how many people are going to show up(most at 10:00 a.m. I am sure), will there be a RUSH of shoppers? I'm a little concerned as I will be by myself, no help! If you are attending please be patient if things are a little chaotic at the start, I will try my best to move quickly. Wish me luck!

Update 11: Well I am as ready as I will ever be, and it's not raining so I guess we are good to go! 1 1/2 hours left for last minute this and that.............THEN IT STARTS! Hope to see you there!
