I was there a few days ago and picked up several packages of Thickers for $2... they had diffferent styles/fonts in vinyl, foam, glitter, fabric, puffy, and chipboard. Also, some Purkey and kids stuff rubons; Martha Stewart stuff, and big packs of AC holiday paper. Hope you find something fun!

I did see some new (to BL's) MS ribbon for $1. I didn't buy any because I just just taken a trip to California where I was lucky enough to actually get to go to the Fabric Barn!!!! In Long Beach, where I spent $110! Wow was that fun! Mostly got ribbon for the cheerleaders (I'm a cheer mom) but what amazing prices!

Isnt it an amazing store? The forst time I went there, I walked in with my friend and we stopped...dumbfounded, with our mouths hanging ope.
we couldnt even figure out where to start.
it was quite overwhelming

I went last week and mine had nothing (I'm in Massachusetts north of Boston). In fact they had the same sad display of junk that they had last summer! It's too bad because its only 10 minutes from my house, but they almost never have anything good ;(

Just some .......Jetmax cubes for $10!!! I couldn't believe it! They were the ones designed for a "kids" room, white with pink or green shelves(your choice). I wish I had bought more. I found them at the one farthest from me and of course the one close to me didn't have them.

I also picked up one of the Harley-Davidson paper packs. They had lots of those and lots of the HD EK Sucess stickers

I went 2 days ago and picked up some MS ribbon in various colors for $1.00, K&Co 3D embellies & some American Craft buttons and eyelets. They also had the Thickers but I am not a thickers fan so I passed on those.

Mine hasn't gotten a new infusion of anything in a couple of months, but it's ok, because I haven't "needed" anything!! Yes, I said that!! I'm sure we'll be getting new stuff in very soon.

Lots of MS stuff for $1! My best deal was a cup cake stand for $1! Packs of crepe paper, 12x12 sheets in great colors $1! More new K & Co. Stickers, really cute, even some that light up! I am hoping to hit more stores today, but my husband is home.

Last time I went (a few months ago), mine didn't have ANYTHING for scrapbooking. I might just have to check there today to see if there's anything new. Thanks for the heads-up!

Thanks for the tip. I went by today and found the Jet Max cubes. I picked up 2 of the white and pink; the only two they had. All the rest were white and green.

Yesterday, I went to a BL that I'd never visted. I bought some Thickers that I didn't need and some AC stickers that are one of my staples.

How often do you need to go to not miss anything? I went to one last week & didn't find much but I know their stock changes frequently, but how frequently?

To the above poster: Our BL is right next to HL too (as a matter of fact they both occupy the building WM moved out of when the Supercenter opened). It is a happy kind of trouble!!

I bought two of the JetMax cubes yesterday...considering getting more if I can figure out where to put them!

I went this weekend and didn't find anything I had to have. I've been REALLY wanting to find more choice in Thickers there, since my BL is so lacking compared to all of yours. But the new ones they did have were shapes, and I want letters

They did have some cute little organizing totes...pics on my blog if you're interested....

I found more of those MS cake stands yesterday for $1! Also new packs of paper for $2, more 3L adhesives for $1, Oh! And thanks to you ladies I found two of the JetMax paper organizers, one with green shelves, the other blue. Are they easy to assemble? You have to keep checking for the $1 MS stuff, it goes fast!
