Sunday I went to Big Lots and they had lots of basic gray! I bought
paper packs for $3.00 each- they had 25 sheets in each pack, the ones I bought are: euphoria/rhapsody, euphoria/frenzy, urban prarie/ladybug, wassil/noel (it is 2 sided), lime rickey/monogram stickers/green. For $1.00, I got laser cut dollies (don't know the name), and nook and pantry favor boxes. For $.50 I got a sheet of red stickers (don't know the name on these either) I also got chipboard stickers for $3.00- I got sugar rush and indian summer. Also for $3.00 I got take note journaling cards, milk chocolate chipboard album and a pack of brads. For $2.00 I got all natural and birds of a feather clear stamps.For $1.00 I got decorative paper clips, glazed brads (halloween design on the brads) and let it snow rub-ons. They also had epoxy stickers and buttons that I didn't get. I love basic gray and was excited to find these. We have 2 more BL nearby and I am thinking to hitting them.
I have never attached pictures here before and will try!

Don't know if there is any easier way but I upload my pics to Photobucket(FREE). Then you click on the pic and it will give you and "image" code. Then you can insert in the body of a post. Most will say "IMG", you will need to add an "A" and and "E" to the word to spell image. Clear as mud, right?

I know that I am so bad to enable but I love Basic Gray and was so excited to find all these goodies- spent way to much money but hey- it's Basic Gray! I called my friend from the store and she came and bought way too much too- her husband wasn't too happy with me. I hope all of yall find some BG goodies too-

Seeing this is PURE TORTURE only 5 days into my Scrapbook Budget Challenge! Oh well, I have $25 to spend this month -- might as well be sooner than later.

Thanks for sharing.

I was JUST about to post about finding Basic Grey goodies at my local Big Lots this morning when I spotted your post! I haven't really been out to BL this past month and wanted to see if there was anything new. Mine didn't have any of the BG paper packs (wish they did), however, I did get the BG Eerie journaling spots/transparencies for $3, Eerie stickers for $1 since I have the matching pp in my stash from the LSS, and a pkg of BG buttons for $3. I also picked up the Mini Monograms cart for $30. It was the only cart in the locked glass case. I had gotten Makin' the Grade on Black Friday for $20 and went back the following week to get MM and they were completely sold out of ALL the Cricut carts. And they had quite a few in there on Black Friday. All I can figure is maybe someone returned it after Christmas. Who knows.

Anyway, they also had a small BG clear stamp set for $3, epoxy stickers, rub-ons ($3), and journaling spots from some other BG collections, big alpha stickers ($1), some kind of lace borders paper (for $1 each), black patterned chipboard alphas ($2 or $3), and June Bug? favor boxes but I didn't get any of those.

They also seemed to have replenished the DCWV paper packs, and have some Sandy Lion paper packs with Thomas the Train pp and there were a couple different 12x12 pp pads by GCD Studios for $5.

Hope you enjoy all your goodies!

I think every Big Lots is going to be a crap shoot. While I was out today I stopped in 2 different Big Lots and each had different things.

One had:
Opaline (2 blue flowers)
Bling it - pumpkin
Eerie - card packs (8 cards per pack) $5
Wisteria & Bittersweet sheets of letters (the punch out kind you use on top of the chipboard)
Buttons (same as the OP), brads (same as the OP)
They had origins rub ons and a completely different stamp set from the OP's.
the paper clip type things
Woolies (don't know which ones)

The other had:
Opaline - heart (perfect for vday)!
Bling it - spider
Obsurce chipboard packs
the ENTIRE collection pack of Euphoria ($5), the lace doily for that collection ($1) great deal if you like that line.
Eskimo kisses (transparencies and journaling tags)
Eskimo kisses epoxy stickers
Woolies (don't know which ones, but different than the above ones)
Origins rub ons
Different rub ons than the PP (white ones)
The paperclip type things again, brads & buttons.
The stickers OP posted (the ones that look like they have some pop dots on part of them)

I don't think each store received the same things (based on my experience today)

So envious about the eerie transparencies, buttons & brads. I really wanted those as I love Eerie.

If I am going by the other one I know, I might stop in.

The BG buttons that I got don't say "Eerie" on them. In fact they don't say any specific collection's name. It's a pkg. of 6 different colors (a pink color, a blue, an olive green, yellow, persimmon (orangy-reddish) and brown) in all different sizes and includes some transparent buttons.

I love all the BG goodies that I got but after seeing and reading about all the other goodies that others got, I will now have to go to the other Big Lots and look for more- did I say that I love Basic Gray?!?
I hope everyone finds lots of goodies at their Big Lots

I don't think each store received the same things


They don't. I've been to 5 different BLs so far and each had different BG stuff. Actually, one had none at all.

I got more than what's pictured above, but I don't have a couple of what in the picture like the stamp sets and the monogram letters. I also noticed that they price differently on some of them. For example, I got a pack of 20-25 sheets of monogram letters from one BL for a $1, at the other BL I went to today, they had them priced $1 per sheet. I bought the doily sheet (pink/brown one) for a $1 a sheet at one BL, found them at another BL today for $1 for the whole pack of 20-25! I'll take a pic of all I got and try to post it.

ETA: I wanted to add, I didn't get any of the brads or the buttons. Thought they were a bit much for $3 a pack.

I saw those monogrammed letter packs and wondered if they were all the same color? I could not see inside the pack. Our BL had some of the favor boxes, laser cut sheets, buttons, rub ons (one with bird cages, and the other Halloween), epoxy stickers, a few stamp sets, sugar rush alphas, chipboard alphas in a few styles, alpha sticker packs, ribbon packs, bling it (ice cream cone and one other), the journaling transparencies, and some other stuff I can't remember. I'm going back after payday, and hopefully it will still be there.
