Local Scrapbook Stores can "Shop Local," Too! (part 3)

Hello, Gorgeouses!  It's the final day of CHA Winter 2013. {SAD}  On the flip side, all those sales representatives and paper crafting industry leaders will be going back to their respective offices and ensuring all their orders go out efficiently to OUR local scrapbook stores! {HAPPY!}

Our final stop on our tour meeting up with New England paper crafting wholesalers is . . .

Did you know  Eyelet Outlet is based right here in the Seacoast of New Hampshire?  They have a H.U.G.E. supply of custom brads and eyelets - it really is amazing!
I totally scraplifted this piccie of Eyelet Outlet at CHA2013 from their Facebook page:

and YES!  They offer coordinating ribbons to match!!  OMGoodness, scrappy happiness :)

Here are a couple of piccies of their new 2013 release:
Bunnies for Easter ~

and because I can hardly have a scrapbooking post without mentioning The ONE, don't you think you need these beauties to embellish your Tim Holtz-inspired work??  I know I do!
New Englanders have plenty of ways to catch up with Suzanne Marchesano, the woman behind the plethora of possibilities at The Eyelet Outlet.  She sells wholesale (of course!), retail from the Eyelet Outlet website, and you can meet the woman behind the story, in person, at CKC-Manchester, NH, April 26 & 27, 2013!  Do NOT forget to check out the Eyelet Outlet's Idea Page as well as their Eyelet Outlet Blog - the ideas are really fasten-ating (get it?) over there!

Make sure to ask your LSS about which items they'll be bringing in from The Eyelet Outlet this spring!

Local Scrapbook Stores Can "Shop Local," Too! (part 2)

We are continuing our lead into CHA Winter 2013 (THE big, holy-moly craft and hobby show in the world!) by highlighting New England's paper crafting wholesalers.  (See our first post HERE)  

Some New England wholesalers you may have heard of, some will be new leads for you to follow.
Today, it's . . . .

Momenta is a huge name in the paper crafting industry.  We're talking Michael's, A.C. Moore and Hobby Lobby huge.  Featured on the CHA blog huge.

Momenta's "Sassy Sayings" featured in Bangor, Maine's A.C. Moore in 2012
and we love 'em!  Why?  Because they're a fabulous family company!  Starting as American Traditional Stencils in Northwood, NH, Michael Barker transitioned the company he inherited into Momenta - a go-to paper crafting supplier that quickly responds to market trends.

Based in an old brewery in the hip city of Portsmouth, NH, my friends at Momenta are putting together their latest offering for the CHA show in Anaheim, California.  Here are a couple of sneak peaks, behind the scenes, at Momenta's 2013 newest introductions:

Michael and his crew sell retail direct-to-consumer, as well a wholesale to big boxes, and certainly our very dear Local Scrapbook Stores. Check them out online at www.Momenta.com or, as I do, follow them on facebook at facebook.com/mymomenta.  They'd love to hear from you!

Happy Day, Laurel Lee Pollard
