End of an Era

June 1, 2009

Scrapbook Destination closed its doors on Satuday, May 31. We’d like to thank all of our loyal customers. We truly did appreciate every dollar you spent with us, and we enjoyed being part of your hobby. We look forward to staying in contact with you through our newest venture, “Crafters’ Flea Market.” We’ll be modeling it on our popular Garage Sales, and including additional crafts: Yarn Crafts, Quilting & Sewing, Beading… Look for news in our e-mails!

Inventory now 50% off

May 20, 2009

It’s time to go to the next level– store inventory is now 50% off, with the same exceptions as before: discount not good on the Silhouette, samples (except cards & layouts), and clearance-priced merchandise.

There are still fixtures, too, available on a cash-only basis: 30- slot paper racks for $60, acrylic paper trays for slat or pegboard, $.75 each, and plenty of slat wall. There are also a small fridge, a microwave, a photo printer, a stereo, the album wall (see last post), and the front and back counters.

We have plenty of stock left to sell, too, including “store use” tools and items that we’ve priced to sell. Come take a look!

Sad News…

May 6, 2009

I regret to announce that Scrapbook Destination will be closing its doors by the end of May. We are truly grateful to you, our customers, for your support and patronage. Unfortunately, the current economic climate makes it impossible for us to stay in business; the entire inventory is on sale 25% off (except a few items–see the store for details).

Beginning Saturday, May 9, all fixtures are for sale as well, including paper racks and fixtures, slat wall and hooks, grid panels and hooks, and assorted office equipment, stereo, tables, and more. All items are first-come, first-served; fixtures must be paid for at time of purchase, and those in use will be held until later in the month, as they are cleared and become available for removal. We will also be selling many of the fabulous samples you’ve admired in the store.

We will no longer be taking coupons as of today, and all sales are final. We are going to make an effort to contact the holder of every outstanding gift card; those cards are good as long as we have inventory to sell, and good on in-stock merchandise only. All $15 Frequent Buyer coupons will also be honored as long as we have merchandise to sell, but purchases will no longer accumulate toward reward. Accumulations of less than $200 cannot be redeemed for a reward; I hope you’ll understand, since the program was always free and intended to benefit you, our customer.

If you have special orders outstanding, we are continuing to pursue those. You’re welcome to check in with us regarding the status of your order; if you are unable to wait we’re happy to refund your payment.

We are going forward with the Garage Sale on May 16 & 17; if you’d like to sign up for a table ($10 for a full table, $5 for a half table), we will be giving the proceeds as half cash, rather than 100% as a gift card.

Again, we thank you for your patronage these last two years; although I am sad to bring this chapter of my life to an end, I am glad to have been able to serve all of you. The staff and I will miss you, and we regret that there isn’t another independent store between Colorado Springs and Northglenn. I wish that circumstances didn’t require us to close. We hope to see you all in the coming weeks; we are expanding our hours during the closeout sale to 10 AM to 7 PM Monday, 10 AM to 6 PM Tuesday-Saturday, and 11 AM to 5 PM Sunday in order make it easier for you to shop during those hours.

More Frenzy Projects & A Chance to WIN!

I promised you more images of Frenzy projects, and here they are! Barb’s going to be dyeing silk scarves with alcohol inks and pens, and each result is totally unique. Here’s mine (I have a thing for green and purple, as my scrap buddies can tell you):

Very Special Anniversary Frenzy

April 30, 2009

So you’ve heard that this weekend– May 2, actually, which is also National Scrapbook Day– is our SECOND anniversary, right? Well, Saturday we’re celebrating with special deals and offers, as well as a full day of fantastic make-n-takes. Drop in between 10 & 1 or 1:30 & 4:30, make whichever projects you like, and pay for only those you make. Fees range from $2 to $15.  We’re doing gifts this time– just in time for Mothers’ Day and teacher gifts. There is a fabulous set of notecards:

And there’s more! Stay tuned tomorrow (because I forgot to take photos in the insanity of today) for a gorgeous scarf dyed with alcohol inks & markers, layouts for April & May (perfect for your end-of-year calendar), a luggage tag, and a pot full of flowers that are really pens! Plus, there will be at least one FREE “do it yourself” make-n-take all day Saturday AND Sunday!

Garage Sale is back!

April 27, 2009

You asked for it, I had trouble deciding on a date, but finally the next Garage Sale is scheduled.  It will be on May 16 & 17– the week after Mothers’ Day, the weekend before Memorial Day. Oy– May’s a busy month!

Here’s how it works: Full tables rent for $10, half tables for $5. You bring your stuff, labelled with the price you’re asking and the number we give you. (If you’d like to split a table with someone, be sure to ask for more than one number, so it’s easy to split up the proceeds. ) We staff the sale, ring everything up, and give you 100% of  the proceeds as a gift card, OR half the proceeds in cash. 

That couldn’t be easier, could it? So if you’d like to sign up, you can find the contract here. Fill it out, bring it in with payment, or fax it back and we’ll charge your card and call you with your garage sale number.  We ask for your card number (and keep it safe) so that, should you no-show without 48 hours notice, we can charge your card $50. We’d rather not do that, though– we’d prefer you call us to say you can’t participate, so we can give your spot to someone from the waiting list.

Sign up now, before we’re all full (again). We look forward to seeing you as a seller or a shopper on May 16 & 17!
