Today is the very last day to shop. In between trips to CHA we've been working on orders.
Just a note: we will be here until the end of February to ensure all orders are shipped and received, all refunds and adjustments are made etc.
Now, on to the fun stuff. Just because I don't have the store this year doesn't mean I can't still go to CHA and see everything. This show is local to me so I can't miss it!
Over the last 5 years I've developed special relationships with some of the vendors and I wanted to say goodbye. I was one of the first stores to carry products from companies like Lily Bee and Echo Park.
So, this blog post is dedicated to the 'if I was going to buy for the store....' CHA picks. I will not totally abandon the industry when the store is closed either. I have plans to put kits and classes together so keep an eye out for that. A lot of the shopping this week is for those future kits. More information to come. (Note: I am not opening a kit club, just occasional kits for sale.)
Here are my favorite products from the show:
Some ribbon fun from May Arts.
We tested out the DIY Thickers. I love the concept but I'll be honest, not all mediums work with these. Micro beads for one. But glitter and flock? Yes please!
A few Crate Paper favorites:
That compass? Must have!
Hold on to you socks ladies....here comes my personal favorite - Studio Calico.
Its all about the potty people. I love this idea and you can never have too many of this shape.
More tiny alphas....and in GREY!
New journal sizes. A large one.....
