We all know there's a Michael's, Hobby Lobby or A.C. Moore big box store in nearly every major city now, and yes, while they do typically have everything we need (and don't!), they don't afford some of the luxuries that smaller shops do.
Maybe you've heard me talk about some of these great local stores, all within a 40 minute drive:
1. The Inspiration Station in Stafford Springs, CT
2. Life's Memories and More in Palmer, MA
3. The Stamp and Scrap Nest in Simsbury, CT.
If you haven't taken a short road trip to any of these local stores, I'd highly encourage you to grab a friend (preferably one named Mastercard) and go!
And, don't forget, there's always ME! Your local talented, creative, sweet, smart, cheerful, generous, friendly, happy, positive, nurturing, lovable and AWESOMEST Stampin' Up! demonstrator! You can shop online anytime (even at home, in your Smurf jammies with bedhead and morning dragon breath)!
