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.

When: Saturday, June 9 from 9 am – 3 pm

Where: Nokesville Church of the Brethren (13002 Fitzwater Drive, Nokesville, VA) 

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”!

If you want to donate some items to be sold at the sale, the first drop-off date is Saturday, April 21 from 10am-12pm in the parking lot of where the store used to be: 208 Elden Street in Herndon.  Angela will be there those two hours to visit and pick up your treasures.  All the proceeds from the sale will benefit the church’s major renovation projects, so we are happy to send you proof of donation for tax purposes, if you’d like one.
