Event Recap: Your Craft Rummage Sale

Last month, we hosted one of our favorite events of the year, our semi-annual Your Craft Rummage Sale. We had 28 customer vendors selling their new and used scrapbooking, card making, and other crafting items. There were some amazing items marked with super low prices. 

In between helping customers, Nicole picked up several Lawn Fawn goodies from one vendor, Helen grabbed homemade valentines, and Lori bought a fun stamp. Here's a quick look at a few of the other items we found for sale:

We can't thank you enough for your support. Customers were active on the event page and helped us share the news. Your recommendations worked, because there was a line of shoppers at the door starting at 9:45 AM, even on the cold January day. It was a great day for all of our vendors, as well as our store. 

Everyone was given the opportunity to pick their own discount ranging from 5 to 40 percent off all regular priced items in the store. This was our second time offering this sale, and there was nothing but excitement. We're looking forward to continuing this tradition in the years to come. 

As we mentioned earlier in the post, this is one of our favorite events to host. We take pride in being able to join together like minded, crafty individuals. So many times our style of creating changes or we simply need to scale back to fit more NEW items in our room! This sale is the perfect exchange of goods, and we love the large smiles on everyone's faces as they say goodbye to product that has filled their homes as well as find new treasures. 

Of course, it couldn't be a Creations Galore event without a few prizes. We chose five names from the giveaway bucket in the store, and picked one lucky winner from the customers that joined our Facebook event. 

We're still waiting for a few event attendees to claim their prizes, so check below to see if you were one of the winners!

Lifestyle Crafts Edge Die: RoseAnne Brooks

BoBunny's Wild Card Collection: Wendy Koltz

Stamping Bella Set: Ashley Pratt (Prize Claimed)

Peachy Keen Stamps Packer Set: Erin Coppens

Authentique Die Cuts & Northwoods Stamp: Brittany Talbot
