AE Liquidation Sale

Thank you so much to everyone who has been concerned about our existence. I am here to reassure you all that the store will continue, in a new and improved style. The liquidation sale is exactly that...aside from a few things which we will continue, we are letting everything go...and the things we are keeping are on sale now, too.

We have had too much stuff in the store, and it has not run in the way that would make us successful. So we faced the choice: close up, or reinvent ourselves. I am choosing the "reinvention" route, going more into Mixed Media, Art Journals, stencils, pastes, inks, paints, Zentangle, and Gelli Plates. We will still have a strong focus on card-making and we are bringing back quite a few wood stamps...they just look so good!  Also, we will do more of our mini books and special kits.

One of the things we had to consider in making this decision was our difficult Fall and early we are asking for your continued support in keeping us open. I know you were all worried that this great source of art supplies might disappear.  At one point, I was, too.  The only way to thrive is the be supported by all of you customers, by asking you to shop us first, before big box stores, and online sites. Anything we don't carry in the new mode, we are happy to order whenever possible.  

So, going forward, for example, we will definitely have Distress ink pads, just not every color. Shown below are the colors we are keeping. If you are interested in any of the other colors, maybe you would like to come in and get them now, while they are on sale!!  These colors below are also on sale, and we will be restocking them as needed. We will probably stick with these colors for the Sprays and reinkers, too. (missing from the photo is Pine Needles..will have to get that one back in.) At any point, we can easily get in other colors...just ask.
Additionally, during the sale, we will have special deals on every Tuesday and Saturday, so watch Facebook for those announcements.

We have just put out some brand new Impression Obsession stamps that have recently arrived, and of course, they are at a bit of a discount!!

Thank you all for your support during the sale, and please visit us often these days.
