Have you seen PL at M's?

Our was pathetic. 4 kits, 2 mini kits, journal cards (both sizes), the new binders (they look like they will fall apart and not last a year), the Big Packet of Photo Pages and the dividers. It was all one one end cap.

No one at M's has heard of PL-not even the employees who are scrapbookers. I asked if they were going to get in more PL items. The manager told me they will if these items sell. I laughed. No one looked at the display while I was at M's.

I went to an M's that wasn't the one I usually go to but was close by (had to get some other stuff). It had the Cinnamon, Midnight, Kraft, and Honey core kits. It also had the baby girl & boy, seasonal, and wedding mini kits. They had both size albums and a ton of the page protectors. It was all on an end cap.

Yes, my M's had it. Same as yours, on an end-cap. It was exactly what I was expecting though, and similar to what HL had (although M's had Kraft and HL had Blush).

I am hoping to get Kraft and the multi-colored Chevron album. But now kind of underwhelmed to drive all the way to Cleveland. Oh well maybe a sneak peek on Sunday between services


be Creative and be Blessed!

Mine was on an end cap, too. I got the last Honey kit- they had Cinnamon, Midnight and Kraft. All of the albums, lots of multipacks of page protectors, big envelopes, and four kinds of mini kits. Also a bunch of the 3x4 blank cards. My local Archiver's had way more stuff but I get the 40% off coupon and a 15% teacher discount so I won't complain!

Maybe it was on BH Blog but I thought I read that M's will be getting more PL items in stock eventually. Maybe when they get their exclusive kits, they'll expand their inventory. I think the excitement has slowed down a bit since they were kind of late in the game to get the products. HL probably benefited the most being first out of the gate and I think A's benefited from having an exclusive kit to offer, then 2Ps got it and had Kraft. I was very surprised M's didn't have the 12x12 paper or even the coordinating cardstock for the kits they have, I think that might have helped the cause. The Binders, although very pretty to look at are not good quality and do not seem like they'll hold up very well.

I wish M's had just started out with their exclusive kits, instead of waiting until August.

I agree. Maybe they wanted to see how well PL would sell first? However, if you're going to have exclusive kits I would hope you've figured out that it would benefit the business to carry the products?! Then again, when employees and managers have no idea what you're talking about when you ask them about PL I guess logic flies out the window

My nearest M's has an endcap filled with PL. Maybe 4 kinds of full-size kits, 4 small kits, lots of albums, 2 shelves of pages, some indiviual card boxes (grids and lined)...

I went in to my local M's and was underwhelmed. I don't really need anything right now...

I just saw a couple core kits, mini kits, binders, dividers, and the grid cards. Hoping the Seafoam core kit makes it way to M's so I can use a coupon on it (for next year's PL)!

This is what mine had.

I just came back from my M's and all the PL items were on an end cap too. I love the albums, especially the chevron and yellow striped one. I actually was going to get the chevron one but the longer I walked around with it, the less and less it appealed to me. I could tell the the tops and bottoms were easily bendable and would not hold up very well to wear and tear. I really shouldn't be surprised though. I am not a huge fan of American Crafts albums or their page protectors. Guess I'll just stick with WRMK's.

Mine had the same as most others on an end cap. I did end up getting the exclusive kraft albums - the ones that were the mint green/aqua design. Not sure how they will hold up but I really liked the design and the price so decided to try them. They were 40% off. I also got the Midnight kit with my 40% off coupon.

I am interested to see what the exclusive core kits look like...i also wonder how many kits Becky is going to come out with at CHA.

I scored the Wellington childhood mini kit for 7.99--discounted already! I would really like to see the mini albums in person..
