More Bargains Galore

Here are the photos of my stash from last month's garage sale at my local papercraft store. Sadly, I will be missing the August one but think I have now amassed enough stash to last for quite some time.

All these wooden stamps were one dollar except the Penny Black which was $3. It is my fave in this photo...although it will be fun to find things that will fit in the snowglobe. You can still see the original price tag on some of these...


These were a little pricier.. $2. up to $4. but the JustRite stamp sets were a little more...one at $5. and one at $6 They were originally $8. but I got to that table quite late in the day and she had reduced them!


The Heartfelt Creations here is my fave but looking forward to eventually stamping all of them. Don't laught but I already have that Stampin' Up punch...sigh...


The Memory Box dies were $1. and $2. I have already used the kraft border strips...
I am envisioning some tartan DP for the background of that Scottish Thistle stamp! The wee black manetic sheet with small silver die is a teensy golf cart. I have a slightly larger one and thought this one would be good to add perspective to a hilly golf card.


Well, that about it. What do you think? I decided to create these two blog posts to show the bargains and share that these sales are held every summer...one each month. If anyone is planning a trip to Vancouver, the sales are about a 40 min drive from downtown and also accessible on skytrain and then local transit.
We see a lot of American papercrafters at the sale as the American dollar is worth more than ours...so the bargains increase!

  5. Wow!! What with this and your previous haul you must be absolutely delighted Mo! Sorry though, I did giggle that you bought a duplicate SU punch in the buying frenzy! Obviously I adore the PB stamp, maybe you should add something suitable to the card as they're obviously looking up to the sky. Snowflakes, or even Santa's sleigh would look great!

    Right, I'm getting ready to book my ticket to come over for next Summer's sales :) So lucky, as Jane says, we don't have anything like that here in the UK. Yet, I'd happily sell quite a bit of my stuff - if only to make room for more goodies! :)

    Hugs
