I was headed out of town on Friday when I got a text from my friend Wendi, aka firewife, telling me that Walls *okie so loves her local bargain store* had a bunch of scrapbook stuff for 40% off. Now I go to Wall's frequently and I haven't seen this stuff so it must have come in very recently! Anyway I turned around and went to Wall's to check it out.
Once there I found Wendi and she was showing me all the cool stuff they had. There is no way I could even begin to tell you what all I bought so I did take some pictures!
Here you see the Tim Holtz alcohol ink applicator and refills. I also got some Gelly Roll white gel pens, some Enamel Accents, a stamp cleaning pad and some heart charms. I found some K & Co buttons and since I have quite a few stacks I figured I would have something to match them for some of my layouts. One thing I was excited about were the little Memento Dew Drop ink pads. I thought these would be great to take to to Stamp Club or crops instead of carrying my larger ink pads. I wasn't sure what the regular retail price was on these but I figured $3.60 a pack was a pretty good deal since it made the pads less than a buck each.
When I first saw the stamp sets with the leaves and the butterflies I grabbed some for my friend Linda, aka LGuild, thinking I would just give them to her..well when I saw the large Memento ink pads I knew I had to call her! I did end up spending almost $85 on the things Linda wanted *okie is so glad she had gotten paid that day so she could cover the shopping excursion*. I really liked the embossing powder set because it had a variety of colors.
Over all I think I got some really good bargains!
Just did the math and regular price for all these products would have been $355.32, or some where in there close to that. I did not pay near that. But even if I had gotten all this stuff for 40% off regular price I would have paid $213.19, but wait...there's more! *okie cracks up at trying to sound like one of those TV sales people* I paid a whopping, are you ready for this...before taxes.....$142.08!!
You did get some great deals! I have the Latte stack - it's a good one for more understated or masculine LO's. And I love K&Co stacks! The Dew Drop sets I believe retail for $9.99 so even with a 50% off coupon you did great! Have fun and have a Scrappy New Year!ReplyDelete
you got some really good bargains. dcwv stack for less than $8 - wow. the cheapest i've ever seen the momento ink packs is $9.99 so that was definitely a score. happy crafting.ReplyDelete

Wow! Great haul Okie! Wish we had a Walls by us. Never even heard of that store. Now I guess you have a lot of crafting to do. Enjoy.ReplyDelete
You got quite a great haul of scrappy stuff. I wish I could find some deals. I need new inks as I'm bored with the colors I have.ReplyDelete
Great score Okie!! I've never heard of Walls, but I wish there was one by me. Happy New Year!ReplyDelete
That's quite the haul. Great deal! Enjoy all your goodies!ReplyDelete
Holy Cow, what awesome goodies you got. Wish there was a Walls near us. The DCWV Latte stack was the first 12 x 12 stack I bought and I love it and I can't wait to see what you create with it.ReplyDelete
Wow there is a Wall's less than 30 min. from my home. I will definately be checking them out. Wish me luck :)ReplyDelete
Wow! What a great surprise! Aren't you glad you turned around? I don't have that store near me. It sounds like Big Lots or TJ Maxx?? Maybe I'll have to check my local stores. I'm so jealous. I could use some retail therapy. :)ReplyDelete
Wow !! You got a lot of good deals !! I've been wanting to get those Momento Dew Drop pads for some time now but just can't afford them right now ! I love the little ones for inking the edges of my projects !ReplyDelete
