Hey guys, it's me again. Well, we visited NW AR this past weekend. Still trying to find a hometown. Fell in love with Bentonville. It is growing so rapidly, there are lots of places to shop, along with Rogers. And Springdale and Fayetteville are both close enough. I went to a scrapbook store in Bentonville, and it was great! We rode around for 2 solid days, looking at houses and marking our map with good neighborhoods. Can't wait 'til June! If anyone knows of any good homes for sale, pm me!
My daughter recently moved to Rogers. I do know it is the largest school district in the state. I love the area. We live about 2 hours south of the area. I am dying to go up there some weekend WITHOUT my husband so I can hit up the SB stores. I was in Hobby Lobby there a couple weeks ago and they had a huge clearance sale, but he was waiting in the car.
If I were you, I would contact the Chamber of Commerce and get them to send you some info.
I do know a few mins. to the outskirts of town will mean a lot price wise when you go to buy a house. I know on the news last week, NW Arkansas got some mention of being one of the top areas for growth, I believe it was.
I know the store in Bentonville. It is great. They are actually helping me out with the PTA NSD event I am doing. They are super nice there. I like to go up there and just look around and hang out even if I can't buy anything. Of course there are a few things in the other part of the store that I love too.
Alrighty my fellow arkie-scrappers. I keep noticing that it's getting harder and harder to find scrapbook stores that aren't the big chains. Nothing against them though. But I usually have better luck finding more unique things and full product lines at the smaller stores.
So I started wondering what is everybody's best kept secret hole in the wall store??? I love to support these smaller stores as much as I can and I'm sure like most of you I'm willing to travel a bit for a really good store.
I'll go first. There's a store in Sherwood called Just Scrap It. The owners name is Cori and I can always count on her to have the coolest stuff!
