Whoo-hoo, I totally scored today! I am in West VA and mine had lots! I also asked if they would be restocking them, because I saw on this thread that someone's BL had more after going back a second time, and they said they had a lot more! So, I guess I will be stalking BL for the next few weeks,lol!

I also got EK punches for $2 each! They had about 6-8 different ones of the medium "Corner Adorner" and "Card Creator" ones and also a few of the small paper shapers. A total steal for these! I got 2 of the "stitch" punches, where it punches a pattern and you stitch the holes to make an image, totally cool!

The one problem was my hubby was with me so I couldn't buy tons,lol! He questioned me buying so many, little does he know I plan on going back this evening to REALLY stock up!

I am also going to KY later this evening and the BL over there is better than the one here usually, so I am hoping to find even more.

The one in Huntington (the one in Eastern Heights shopping center)is the one I went to and I am going to go to the one in Ashland Ky. later today. I haven't checked the one on 14th st. yet, I don't go there usually, they don't have much most of the time.

I have a special request (since I'm sure I'm not the only west coaster obsessively checking this post). Can we agree to start a new post (as someone mentioned before) the minute any west coast thickers sightings have been made? Make the title in all caps, something with "west coast" and "thickers" in the title.

Thanks!

I went to 4 BL in my local area of Riverview,Fl. I only found Thickers in 2 BL...the one in Brandon and the one in Ruskin. I went to the BL in Tampa(Busch and Florida Ave) and didnt find zilch. I got ten packs between both stores....well worth the road trip

I hope this helps anyone in the area.

Finally had time to run into our BL and I hit the jackpot! Actually I laugh because the boxes were still in the aisle unloading them. I was able to rifle through 4 boxes of thickers. Although I was a bit bummed they did not have orange or green, but they did have vinyl, foam, chipboard, felt and fabric thickers! FUN! I'm hoping to find another BL that is near to see what kind they got in verses my cities.

I went to my local BL today, they did't have the Thicker's i was really hoping for but i did get the vinyl yellow. I can't remember what the font was called. I was really hoping for the shiny puffy ones. Oh well.

c*ALI*scrap, no worries they will arrive here in CA. Picture the BL trucks working their way from the East Coast to the West Coast, and it takes a while. In the past So. Cal has received AC items first, then about a week later we seem to get them up North. I'm just guessing here, but I'm thinking they'll be in Northern CA sometime during the second week of June (hopefully earlier than later!). Apparently AC has a lot of these goodies left over as the BL stores that carry them seem to have a ton by the posts on this thread! Our turn will come up shortly!

I don't know, but I hope it's not like the Great Alphabet Soup Deprivation of '08. We never ever got any in my area and I checked faithfully and repeatedly. I reeaaally wanted some. Thank goodness TM came through a few months ago and I was finally able to join in the lettering fun.

I pass BL on my way home from work and you can bet I'm checking regularly and will update the moment I lay eyes upon them. (I'm in Oregon.)

Chendra, one of my BL still has the alphabet soups! I live in an area where there aren't many scrappers, and the ones there are aren't "brand name" conscious. Not to say that we are, just the ones I know have no idea what a cropadile or Basic Grey is. If its not sold at Wal-mart or our local LSS, they have no clue. I've tried to get them to come here, I know they would love it when they did, but to no avail.

Also, my Ky. store only had Black and White, about the same ones I already found. The only colors I wound up with in all were white, black and red.

The fonts were:

Pajamas-black felt (the package was slightly different on these)
Sprinkles- red vinyl
Vera- black vinyl
Daiquiri-black and red vinyl
Lax- black glitter chipboard
Darling- white chipboard
Prancer- black chipboard
Accents- (so cute!) white chipboard
Tinsel Accents- black chipboard

EK Success punches:

Card Creators-(medium punches)

Curls stitch
Celebration

Paper Shapers:

Double Circle
Fold Over Pine Tree
Buckle

Card Creator & Corner Adorner Punches:

Corbel
Love x 3 Interlaced
Flower stich


I also got 2 more that's not on the site. I got a heart "stitch" type one and pretty heart that's like interwover, its a card creator/corner adorner.

The BL on 70 in Raleigh, NC has some, but only in black and white. They have some vinyl, felt, and some of the accent shapes.

The BL in Cary, NC has holiday shapes, several glitter fonts in different colors, some vinyl, some fabric, lots of colors.

The BL in Western Blvd. in Raleigh, NC didn't have any today (Saturday, 5/30).

All in all, though, I think I scored 14 different sets!

Any spotted in NJ or Eastern PA? The BL closest to me (Hamilton, NJ) doesn't have a lot of scrapbooking supplies. I have been to the Fairless Hills PA store before and may take a trip there to see if they have any.

Thanks to mrsk2004 I found the Thickers! I picked up 11 packages in Vestal NY today-just before they closed.

They still had a bunch there if anyone in the area is looking. They had vinyl, felt and glitter.

I didn't even know they had a store in Vestal since I don't get there often. If I had known I would have gone there yesterday; but no problem as I think they hadn't sold out of anything they had when I got there.

I've never used Thickers so I am looking forward to trying them.

Got one pack of Thickers. I don't like fonts in all capitals, so I just got "Poolside" in white. They had one other font in black and white, can't remember the name, but they're tall/skinny and capitals. And they had shapes too. I love Big Lots!

But got a lot of other stuff too. Three packs of black Remarks stickers. And seven packs of American Crafts buttons for $1 each. I've been looking at buttons recently, and you can't get those really cute lavender, pink, etc colors in the cheap bags of buttons of course. So I stocked up!

WEST COAST SCORE! Nice! I got mine at the Lynnwood, BL (WA). After checking just about every other western WA store. I had a good feeling rolling up too.

Can't figure why the 2peas gallery isn't letting me in (error messages), but I posted a photo at my {scrappy} blog link below too. Will post to the gallery soon as it lets me back in.
