I've noticed that Westrim strap-hinge albums are as rare as hen's teeth. I've seen a few window albums, but that's it.

I have a hunch that CM eliminated the competition. Does anyone know whether CM bought Westrim's album division?

I don't know if CM bought them out or not. The only place I can find strap hidge albums are at Hobby Lobby if you are lucky to have one of those stores by you. I don't think Michaels carries them any more.

Big Lots may carry them.

I found a bunch at Big Lots. They only had black and they were $10 each. I prefer CM albums, but can't always spend the $. Do you have a BL near you? Maybe you can find some there.

There is a LSS in Yorktown, VA that used to sell them, as well. I am not sure where you are from, but if you live anywhere near VA, you could try it.

Egads, I just checked your profile and you are nowhere near VA. Maybe try a LSS, though.

Tammi, I don't think M carries strap-hinge albums anymore. I shopped HL all the time when I lived in Colorado Springs. I checked and can now shop HL online. And you're right!!! They have strap-hinge albums. You've made me a very happy camper!!!

Bless you!

Picture to Page? Is that the one or is there another in Yorktown I don't know about? (I live nearby...)

Glad you found them!! That's usually where I buy mine. I love CM albums but they are a little pricey.

FYI on Westrim, when I was a CM consultant in the late 90s there was some kind of legal battle between CM and Westrim because the strap hinge album style was supposed to be exclusive to CM. Or at least that's what they told us. So if westrim albums are hard to find, that may be what's causing the short supply, but I don't know for sure. Like I said, it was in the late 90s.

However, they may be expensive but in my opinion, CM albums are the only way to go! Excellent quality and durability!
