is an amazing, fantastic, incredibly awesome store. i travel all over the place and always stop in any lss that are around. This is probably the best store Ive ever been in.
-the samples were incredible, various styles, and all over the place. mini books, altered art, pages, you name it.
-the people were super nice.
-the store had an amazing set up...very creative merchandising.
-stamps, scrapbooking, and altered art with very new lines.
-the class schedule looked fabulous, with many guest instructors
-the croproom was cool, too

the owners just looked like they really took thier time putting everything together. i just kept wanting to look around. could have spent hours there, but my (new) husband got tired after like an hour and wanted to continue on with our honeymoon!

They also have a big, comfy couch for husbands (and DS's).

I've wanted to get back to St. Pete since I moved back north 18 years ago. If I ever make it back, I definitely want to stop and check this place out.

DH feels Florida is to far to drive (we live in PA), but doesn't want to fly there. He prefers to fly further, like Aruba.

This is BY FAR the best scrapbook store in Pinellas County.

The owner Jill is the most sweetest lady and the staff there always go above and beyond to help out there customers.

I live about a 1/2 hour from there and it is so worth the ride.

So SIL lives in FL and we visit her often. I got excited for a second, but then I did a google maps directions search from her house (Jacksonville) to WSD and it's 4 hours away
I am never meant to see this store, am I? (I also have no concept of how far apart cities are in FL.)

Yes, it is a GREAT store!! I live in Nebraska and have been there three times. Last time we were in St. Pete I made my husband take me there two days in a row....and I won't say how much money I spent

Yep...I remember when they were at the old location and there were only like 10 parking spaces and it was always packed on Saturday morning. They have truly lasted while many others have come and gone.

I'm only an hour away, too, yet I've never made it to that store. I definitely need to make time to visit. I'm glad you had fun!

Dang it! I was in St. Pete a month ago and it never occurred to me to look for an LSS. I will definitely have to visit next time I get down there!

Totally agree! Went to WSD back in 2009 when we were in Treasure Island. I was in Clearwater and St. Pete over Mother's Day 2012 and it *killed* me to not go, but I was with my Sisters and Mom and they didn't want to go.

It has been a few years since I visited. I was born and raised in St. Petersburg but I don't get back very often now that my mother is living out here with me.

Love that store. If I had a lot of money I would fly back just to visit that store!

I'm so glad to hear that the people are friendly. I lived in Pinellas County from 2002-2006, so I visited there a few times, but the people weren't friendly at all. I'm now over here in Hillsborough County & will definitely have to take some time to visit there again.
