Well in just a week we have lost 2 scrapbook stores in Hampton Roads. I am in disbelief over Picture to Page. It has been around for almost 15 years.

I feel so bad for the owner, and for us in the community.

The only one we have left is the new one Pocket Full of Scraps. I know I should be happy we have even one, but I am in a little bit of grieving mode.

She is going to host crops once a month at Nancy's Calico on Warwick. She is having 50% off Tues, Wed and Thurs and that's it. Make sure she has your email so she can keep you posted about the crops.

She said she is doing one Dec 15th I think.

She sent out an email this evening. I was shocked.


Hello Picture to Page Family,
I say family because so many of you have become like family to us over the last two years and it makes our news even harder to share. As many of you know the last five or six months have been tough on the store. It’s no secret that the state of the economy has played a part and it has become ever so hard to compete with the big box stores. We have made lots of adjustments and tried to explore many options but we have come to the conclusion to close our store. Many of you have been asking questions about the store and asking us if we were going to stay open in recent weeks and while we had hoped to figure out a way to make it work, after this weekend it has become apparent that we cannot continue. This decision was a hard one to make but with declining sales each month it has become clear that we’re not going to be able to catch up and closing the store is in the best interest of my family. Family comes first.

We will be offering 50% off of everything for our final three days, this Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday (November 13-15). Everything is for sale including our paper racks, plastic shelves, slat walls and other displays. We will be open normal hours on Tuesday from 10AM to 4PM, on Wednesday we will be open from 10AM to 6PM and on Thursday we will be open from 10AM to 8PM. All Picture to Page gift cards will be honored for any products or fixtures (no cash will be given for gift card balances, sorry). All sales are final! Stock up and Save BIG!

Although this is sad news…we do have a bit of exciting news to share with you! Picture to Page has made arrangements with the wonderful ladies over at Nancy’s Calico Patch to continue to have monthly crop nights starting on Saturday, December 15th! For those of you who have not been to Nancy’s, she has a very large room with comfy chairs, plenty of tables and floor outlets so that P2P Crop Night will be better than it ever was at the store. We will be vending at the crops as well! That’s right, you will have plenty of room, your own table, and you will still be able to shop, see all the new lines, stock up on your Sticky Thumb, etc. at prices LOWER than ever since we will now have little to no overhead. We will also be offering a class or two sometime during each crop (for an additional charge, more information to follow). You can come to the crop, take a class or both. Or just stop by to shop! Please call the store number, which we are keeping, to sign up. Crops will still be $10 but payment must be made in advance to secure your spot either by credit card over the phone, PayPal online (to shannon@picturetopage.com) or by mailing a check or money order (more information on payment types will be coming later).

Please continue to check our Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/Picture.to.Page) for updates and information on new products arriving for our crops. As always if there is ever anything that I can order for you, with no shipping, please let me know…you can always pick up at our crops! We will continue to do our Laser cut chipboard albums. You can message us on Facebook, send us an email to shannon@picturetopage.com or order through our website (details to come soon).
Lonnie and I want all of you to know how much we have appreciated your love and support these last couple of years. It has meant so much to us and brought us much joy. We look forward to seeing the future of our business grow as Picture to Page gets “wheels” and becomes mobile. Please help us spread the word so that we may continue to provide the area with much needed scrapbook products!!
