Lower Stamp Prices & Distress Markers

Yes. You've read correctly. Two thoughts that are music to ANY stampers ears!

How low can we go?
So one day over the weekend, I went through our entire stamp wall and repriced all the Penny Black stamps to reflect their new lower pricing.  You can see just how many stamps are now reflecting a MUCH lower price.  For example their largest stamps we over $17 and are now $12.95!  That's huge!

While I am on the topic of pricing, please know that I am dedicated to providing you with the most competitive pricing in Chatham Kent when it comes to paper crafting supplies and I hope you find our selection to your liking!  If there is ever anything you are looking for and you do not see it in the store, just ask me if I can get it in!  The Pickle is only one 1,200 square foot store and even with 10,000 square feet, I don't think there is any way you could carry everything that is out there!  Don't be afraid to ask!

Big Box vs. The Pickle 
Look I go........So many of you have asked me what I think about the new big box craft store that has come to Chatham.  Now honestly, I do think having a craft store here is amazing.  It allows crafting to be more accessible to those in our community.  How cool is that?!?

I have thought long and hard about whether to post about this but I think it is my duty.  I am keenly aware of the suggested retail prices when it comes to my product....that's my job.  One would assume that big box = the lowest pricing and that is often not the case.  For example, yesterdays flier showed Smashbooks on sale for $16.99 (regular $21.99 at the big box) starts Saturday.  Now I am not sure if you have noticed my everyday low price of  $14.99?  This is not special pricing on my part.  This is in fact the suggested retail price set by K&Co.  Many items are like that....hmmmmm....a little food for thought.  I will leave it at that.

Now on to the ultimate in coolness....

You are absolutely correct....the pricing at the "big box store" is crazy....waaayyy toooo expensive. Not sure why anyone would shop there when you can get that home grown, personal atmosphere right at the Paper Pickle. I for one LOVE my local crafting store who ALWAYS goes out of their way to help you out! You guys are 2nd to none for me!
