TWO OF OUR FAVORITE EVENTS!

 

Used Stamp Sale                               Saturday, March 19

Used Scrapbook Supply Sale           Saturday, April 2

 

 

This winter is a great time to sort through your stamps and scrapbooking supplies to get them ready to sell at these sales!

 

As you sort, keep in mind that we accept stamps only at the Used Stamp Sale. At the Used Scrapbook Supply Sale we will accept most everything else. A complete list of instructions and accepted items will be given when we start sign-ups. Watch this newsletter for more information!

 

 For those of you new to the sales here’s how it works:

Sell your stuff and get cash! You sign up and get a customer number, inventory sheet and price stickers. Then you price them and make an inventory list. Bring the merchandise in before the sale. We will do all the selling for you. When the sale is done, you will get money for the sold items and the unsold items will be returned.

 

Share the dates of the sale! You may know others who want to sell or attend the sale to look for bargains!
