Last week, one of my favorite local shops for papercrafting supplies decided to close up shop for good. They had a great reputation, an interesting selection of items not carried by the big-box craft stores, and a regular schedule of how-to classes. The staff was very friendly and helpful, even when they were baffled by my questions and quests to use scrapbooking supplies for non-your-typical-scrapbook projects. I always left there with new ideas and sometimes some new products to try. I will miss them.
