Today’s Scrapbook Yard Sale Haul

This month in our area (Columbus, OH) we’ve marked our calendar to check out four scrapbook garage sales.

A scrapbook garage sale gives people the chance to sell tools and supplies they no longer want to others who love to paper craft. Let’s face it, scrapbookers who have been scrapbooking for awhile have more than likely accumulated a large amount of supplies and selling those extra bits and pieces is a great way for them to make money to buy more supplies. They are usually organized and hosted by an independent scrapbook store, but that’s not always the case.

Today’s sale was at a community center. Five woman who have been scrapbooking for years came together to sell their unwanted items at garage sale prices. Because it wasn’t at a store, it was a little smaller then what we normally see, but we still found lots of bargains! Even though we have more supplies and stamps than we will probably ever be able to use, I still love going to these things because you never know what you might find. I have always loved going to flea markets, yard sales, antique stores as well as thrift stores anyway, so this reminds me of those fun times and feeling like I am treasure hunting. I also love Halloween and PSX stamps, so I am hoping to find some when I go. There is one in particular that I am hunting for so maybe I will get lucky and find it one day and it will bring me the happiness that I deserve. If not, I may have to try out my new Teresa Collins Stamp Maker and make my own!

Anyway, today I picked up some goodies like a new tool carousel that matches the one I already own. Now we can be a bit more organized and remove some of the stuff that is crammed in our existing one. I also picked up a five wooden stamps, two clear stamp sets, three punches, some Basic Grey papers with their matching brads, chipboard stickers and rub-ons, and a few other assorted items.

Tomorrow, we will be checking out another one at B&B Scrapbooks in Powell, and then next weekend, there are two more! If I find something really cool, I will be sure to tell about it here on our blog.
