Hi Crafty friends,
Just wanted to update you on the dates for the Ranger Warehouse Sale this year...it is really early, Saturday 9/15/12 from 9am-2pm. Cash or checks accepted, no credit cards.
Let me address the inquiries about the art Retreat. Last year I hosted an art retreat that incorporated attending the sale in the festivities. Due to the date change , the art retreat will not be held at this time. I am now in the process of choosing dates for a small gathering to take place in October or November...stay tuned.
As far as the sale goes, in years past it has been priced per pound. Last year it was $6/pound. You can find irregular products there, and older retired colors of things in glitters, stickles, ink pads, and all of the Ranger products. I have never had one problem with anything I have ever bought there, I have had to add a little water to the paint dabbers, but that is all.
Last year following the sale, I organized a lunch for attendees primarily from YouTube at the Applebees restaurant across the street from the warehouse. I plan on repeating this , and welcome you to join us for lunch for a meet and greet at around 12:00pm, give or take. Lunch is pay your own check, and I would love to meet all of you.
Following the lunch, I have made it my tradition to head over to Scrappers Cove in Milltown, NJ. It is a fabulous scrapbook store about 20 minutes drive away. I make it there about once a year following the sale, and it is not to be missed
So mark your calendar, and plan to be there.....
