Less than two weeks away!!!

The big event is almost here!!!  We hope you are planning to join us on Saturday, June 9 between 9 am - 3 pm for the most incredible crafting yard sale ever!  Remember, this event is at Nokesville Church of the Brethren, 13002 Fitzwater Drive, Nokesville, VA.  It is right off 28 - easy to find!

We know how much you've missed shopping, free make-and-takes and Laura's classes, and so we have all three - the trifecta!


This is the stunning FREE make-and-take project, sponsored by Denise Stork, the owner of The Project Bin stamps (visit her website to see all her amazing products!)  The make-and-take will begin at 9 and will be available all day (while supplies last).  In addition, Denise will have a trunk show of her stamps and dies - and a yard sale special!  Purchase one of her sets and receive the second at 50% off!

In addition to our own tables and the Project Bin station, we have 26 other vendors!  I truly believe we will have more to choose from than we did at the shop - and that's saying something!  I have been working since April to sort all the fabulous donations people have provided - many of the things are brand new!

We have stamps and dies from all your favorite companies:  Hero Arts, Memory Box, Impression Obsession, Alte New, Concord & 9th, Penny Black and more! 

I will have a table full of tools and another for storage items!  There are Big Shot and Cuttlebug machines, Cricuts, Rollabind and Cinch bookmaking tools, punches galore and lots of different paper trimmer options!  (4 rooms in my house are completely full of items!)  And, don't get me started on all the card stock and 12x12 designer paper we have!!!

And, sometimes it's fun to be surprised!  So, we have tremendous grab bags!  Each one contains between $50-65 worth of merchandise for only $5.00!  And, they are all marked with a theme:  Christmas, Fall, Floral, French/Paris, Summer and so on. 


Laura is offering her ever-popular 10 in 10 class featuring all the latest designs from Memory Box and Impression Obsession.  The first class is from 9:30 - 11:30 am and then she will offer it again from 1:00 - 3:00 pm.  We've had a couple cancellations, so there are just a very few spots available in each of the classes.  Click the links for more info, or simply contact her at to reserve your spot.

More Details

1.  We (and the other vendors) are not able to accept credit cards, so please bring cash and/or checks for your purchases.  

2.  You may also want to bring your own bags.  We have some at our tables, but not all vendors may have them, so plan ahead.  

3.  There is SO MUCH to see that you may need the entire day!  Therefore, we do have concessions on site - and all of the money from your concession purchases goes towards the Major Maintenance campaign for the church.

4.  Community Outreach - As you know, we have always had outreach as a part of our Open Houses, so we wanted to make that available to you as well.  We will be collecting for our Blessings Box program, which you can visit while you're here.  We are in desperate need of Laundry Detergent, Dishwashing Soap (and the Dollar Store brands are great, so you can get a lot of bang for your buck (literally) if you shop there) and toothbrushes. 

If you think of any other questions, please don't hesitate to let me know at

We are really looking forward to connecting with you all again!  See you there!

Happy Stamper Yard Sale/Fundraiser/Reunion

We are so excited to the initial response we received from our invitation to join us for some stamping and shopping fun!   We hope you are planning to attend.  It will be a great chance to shop for Stamping & Scrapping yardsale bargains, support a great cause and reunite with the Happy Stamper family.

What: Stamping & Scrapbooking Yard Sale!  Angela, Harriett, Deb and Susan will be here!  In addition, the lovely Laura will offer her fabulous 10 in 10 workshop twice so that as many of you can attend as possible.  Plus, Denise Stork, owner of The Project Bin Stamps, will be here with a FREE make-and-take and “yardsale special”.  Buy one of her items at full price and get one 50% off!

We sold all the indoor tables and have added some outdoor tables as well.  There will be Stamping & Scrapping deals as far as the eye can see!  You really won’t want to miss this – especially if you miss getting to hold the merchandise and “smell the stamps”!

Last Day

Well, it is here.  Our last day is Saturday, Sept 30th.  We will be open our regular hours of 10am-5pm.  There isnt a lot left, but it is now 75% off.  There is paper, ribbons, dies without coordinating stamps (a great buy because you can get the stamps cheaply later), some paints, some markers, and a few ink pads.  We also have folding chairs for $5 each. Laura, Harriett, Deb, Dee, and Kathy will be there if you want to stop by to say goodbye.

Our Copic refill service is now over so we are selling the remaining refill colors on a first come, first serve basis. Remember, the refills are alcohol ink, so you can use them just like you would Ranger brand alcohol ink. You don't have to use them just for refilling your markers. I love using them on Yupo paper. They are priced depending on how much ink is left in them, so it is a great opportunity to get a nice assortment of colors.

The Final Week is Here

Greetings friends,
We have really appreciated the opportunity to see so many of you in the past month - and to hear from so many of you who have moved out of the area but still hold a special place for us in your heart.  Building community was a true passion for us, and if the outpouring of well-wishes over the last month is any indication - we did that well.  Thank you for being a part of that with us!

Our final day will be this Saturday, September 30

In addition, we are deepening our discount effective immediately to 60% off all merchandise.  And, we do still have some wonderful items to choose from.

If you get a chance this week, we would love to see you to say goodbye.  Several of the happy stampers will be at the store on Saturday for the final day.

Just a reminder that you are running out of time to have us refill your Copic markers. Do you have plans for how to refill your markers when we close? Take advantage of the service while it lasts. We have run out of some colors, but most are still available. You will have to leave your pens with us to fill, but they will be ready within the week. Ciao marker refill- $1.  Sketch marker refill- $1.25

Greetings friends.  This is a quick update to let you know where we are in the closing process. First of all, thank you to everyone who has stopped by.  We have enjoyed sharing memories and having the chance to say goodbye.  We have made a lot of friends over the last 14 years. Yes, we are still open.  We will not be here in October, but we will be selling the rest of the inventory and fixtures in September. Yes, there is still plenty to buy.  We really suggest stocking up on the nice 8 1/2" x 11" papers.  Paper is one of the harder things to buy online and you often cant buy it by the individual sheet.  Get it while you can!  We also suggest getting ink pads, reinkers, adhesive, and ribbon.  Those are the staples in your collection that go with everything. Here are some current picts of the store:
