Spring Open House!

We hope you are planning to join us as we celebrate spring with a fabulous open house on Saturday, May 13 from 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM.

This year, we are changing things up a bit and focusing on one company, Impression Obsession, because they have so many new products to entice you!!! The owner of IO, Mitra Friant, thought our event sounded like so much fun that she is going to join us!!!! This is an enormous, big deal because Mitra's schedule rarely allows her to visit local stamp stores anymore. And, she's bringing her "trade show booth" - so many products and samples!!!! Bring your camera and come celebrate her presence with us - she's a hoot and a half!!!  She will be rotating her demos all day long - and these demos will introduce you to her brand new ink pads - you don't want to miss this!!!

To show our appreciation for your support throughout the year, snag a FREE goodie bag just for stopping in (one per household, please) while supplies last.  You'll also receive a ticket for additional door prize drawings throughout the day.

And as always, we'll have a Community Outreach Project benefiting the Nokesville Church of the Brethren Blessings Box(see the details at the bottom of the page). You'll receive an extra door prize ticket for your contributions.

Once again, we are overflowing with FREE, fun things to do! Mitra, Laura and Kathy will be sharing demos, and there will also be 2 FREE make-and-takes available while supplies last. No reservations are required, but come early and plan to stay all day - you won't want to miss out.

The demos are scheduled as follows:
Demos: 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM
Stipple Stamping & Die Masks - Mitra
Techniques with Shrink Plastic - Laura

Demos: 12:30 - 2:00 PM
Cosmic Shimmer Metallic Gilding Polish - Kathy
Mitra will resume her demos after a break for lunch

Demo: 2:30 - 4:00 PM
Techniques with IO backgrounds - Laura

The first make-and-take features I.O. Silhouette stamps and will be available from 10 - 12 (pictured below).  The second make-and-take features I.O. Background stamps and a geometric flowers die.  It will be available from 1 - 3.

There will also be refreshments and lots of new product to excite you! As you can see, we have quite a day planned. We hope you'll save the date and plan to join us so we can thank you in person for continuing to support small business! It's a privilege to be your local stamp store! 

Community Outreach - Nokesville Church of the Brethren Blessings Box
The Blessings Box is an unlocked container stocked with nonperishable food items, toiletries or other basic household needs (including diapers and feminine hygiene products) available with no questions asked 24/7. People are invited to take what they need and give what they can. And above all, be blessed!

The Blessings Box "stands in the gap" for people who, for whatever reason, come up short at the grocery store but who don't receive formal assistance. Additionally, diapers, cleaning supplies and personal hygiene products are not provided by area food banks and are especially helpful.

Donation Items Requested
Non-perishable food items
Small bottles of laundry detergent
Small bottles of dishwashing soap
Feminine Products (pads)
Diapers (all sizes)
Small packs of Baby Wipes
Gallon Ziplock Bags
Dove Bar Soap
