The only time I find scrapbooking stuff at garage sales is when my LSS has its annual sale! (Coming up, by the way! Woohoo!)

I've never been to a garage sale. It's not such a big thing where I live, although I could definitely hold one right now - we have too much stuff!

My big worry would be whether the sellers had cats. Both DH and I are just so allergic to cats that we wouldn't be able to have anything in the house that had previously belonged to a cat owner. That sucks.

I went for a walk one day and found there was a block garage sale going on - came across a lady who had owned a scrap booking store and closed it down - I was in BARGAIN heaven! My best find in there and one I use constantly was a corner cutter.

I never seem to be able to find scrapbook stuff at garage sales. I find a lot at thrift stores.

I've even had to start being very picky about what I buy there because I have so much. But if it's really cheap, I buy it anyway for my nieces to play with.

Twice a year our thrift stores have a $4 bag sale and I find a lot of cool buttons/ribbon/embellies on clothing that I strip off and use on layouts.

I LOVE going to thrift stores because you never know What you are going to find.

Oh heck I thought the old circuit city was a car dealer. lol

Being a bit north of springfield scrapbook your story was about a 45 min drive it seemed and it just seemed like they always had the same old stuff. One time I asked on one of her fb posts about getting something and got my head bit off by the owner so I never went back. I was pretty upset over that. But i'm absolutely loving the new store and their customer service is awsome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!

Thanks for the heads up on the new J's I'll have to go check it out
