Thursday I went to the Twin Cities for my errand running service. See blog busybeetales.blogspot.com/ I was going to pick up a customers grocery order from Byerly's in Eagan. I did find this great paper place called Anchor Paper Express in Burnsville.It is out of the way, off Cliff Rd. and 12th Ave. S. across the street from a Pepsi Cola distributor warehouse. I was told by my wise and stamping happy friend Martha that it had discount envelopes there. Oh! What an understatement! I walk in and to my hearts delight I spy - RUBBER STAMPS, SCRAPBOOK PAPER, STICKERS, SIZZIX DIES, CARD SAMPLES, EMBELLISHMENTS GALORE, INK, TOOLS, CLEARANCE ITEMS AT GREAT PRICES, a SCRAPPING ROOM WITH TOOLS YOU CAN USE, SIMILAR TO ARCHIVERS, AND A WAREHOUSE AREA TO PURCHASE ENVELOPES AND PAPER BY THE POUND. I was so overwhelmed. It was so FUN! Of course this may have to be a regular stop on my cities run days! (just for me to take in and enjoy!!) I held back and did not go crazy, but logged all kinds of information for future reference. Have I tempted some of you to want to join me on one of these runs?!!! This will be a regular stop. I hope to do more cities runs, so please pass on to your friends and families that I offer this service.I brought 2 coolers with to transport the refrigerated items and frozen items back to Red Wing in. I did pick up the groceries upon leaving the Twin Cities, so they were NOT lingering in the vehicle while I was mooning over the paper goodies at Anchor Paper Express. I hope to have a testimonial from the customer who I did the pick up for.
So if you'd like to come with me, you can buy lunch or a stamp from Stampscapes. Anchor Paper Express carries so many lines of rubber stamps, Stampscapes is one of my favorites!
I'll have to post when I am going next time. Or you can frequent my busybeeassistant blog to find out more.
Oh, on a crafting note: I punched a Big Bird and Cookie Monster too! SO adorable!
