Went to Big Lots yesterday as they were unloading the new stuff for the week and they had Basic Grey paper packs for $5!! They also had the BG doilies $1 sheet. LOADS of other BG items -- brads, buttons, felties, rubons, etc. Cleaned mine out of paper packs and doilies and put a dent in the brads and buttons.

Dang it, my BL just has junk. Real scrappy junk that no one in their right mind would buy. SEND ME YOUR BIG LOTS!

Our BL has junk too! It's been awhile since I shopped it though. Maybe I should check it out again.

I went to BL this morning and found an American Crafts 8x8 red album for $6.00! It was still in the packaging and much less than the LSS. Also got some Bazzill card stock. There were some BG items but nothing I really wanted. Also they now have a frequent shopper card with a good reward/coupon program.

love going to big lots and finding great items,they have a 12by12 scrap book called generations it's very pretty you just add pics and other embellishments if you want to. they had several other albums.since they remodeled they have cut down on the scrapbook section.I work across the street from ours so I usually go there on my lunch break..

Great buys! Lucky you!

We had two BL near us.
One never carried any sb stuff.
The other had tons and then it started to not get as much.

I think they get stuff based on demographics, that is why some have sb stuff and others have a little or none.

Same here.
One has an okay crafting section, the other has virtually nothing.

My BL doesn't have much but last weekend when I was about an hour away from home going to a LSS I passed a BL and stopped in. They had several things from the BG Halloween line. I picked up paper, brads (extra packs to use for swaps), buttons, and tiny skull shaped candy boxes. They also had some boy type line (with dinosaurs) and a few $1 stamps. I did check my local BL on Monday and they didn't have anything. Perhaps I should check again to see if they just hadn't put it out yet.

I get the occasional find at BL,,,,

last time I was there, I picked up Bazzill CS, which was a MISTAKE, because now I love the stuff

I am almost afraid to look again

There is also the 20% off coupon thru Sunday.
I went yesterday, and bought some BG stuff, some Bazzill, some BG dollar stamps, marked down to 50 cents, then 20% off, etc etc etc.
