It's kinda like Christmas......


Did you ever watch that package under the Christmas tree for weeks sort of knowing what was inside but not quite sure?

How about that wrapped birthday present up in the top of the closet that you weren't really supposed to see, but there it is....

We are entering the final stretch in getting the store ready to open and it is with mixed emotions that I must tell you that we have blocked out the windows and they will remain that way until October 2nd at 10 am when we open the doors for the first time.

We are about to lay the carpet and the fixtures are going up and we'll begin to put the product out. I think that you will all be very, very pleased. As Tom and I have unpacked product and checked it all in I grow more and more convinced that the selection and breadth of product line will be like none you have ever seen!

So, in order to keep as much as possible under wraps until the 'ta-da' moment in October, we are operating behind brown paper and closed doors - please allow us to surprise you just a little!

We will continue to provide you updates in our weekly newsletter. If you are not a subscriber, please click the link at the left and sign up to continue to get the latest and greatest information and pictures!
Synchronize your watches. Mark your calendar. Take a vacation day from work on October 2, 2009. Anthologies is only a little over 5 weeks away and we can't wait!
See you soon!

I think it's going to be like those old Mervyn's commercials where the shoppers were outside the doors saying, "Open, open, open"! Can't wait to see the store and the inspiration samples! sus

I am so excited that a new scrapbooking store is opening. I drove by yesterday on my way home from work. I have a group called the Gabby Scrappers and I will pass on the word.
