Danielle - If you're going to be in the city itself, I HIGHLY recommend Windy City Scrapbooking. It's my favorite store. Then there is also Scrapbook Source. Outside of the city are plenty of Archivers (www.archiversonline.com). If you are going to be out west, another great store is Memories and Beyond (they are the sister store to Scrapbook Source, but much bigger and I like it better).
There are other ones, but these are the ones I know and frequent. Hope this helps!
Next April I will visit Chicago for a week. Is there anyone from Chicago overhere who could tell me wich scrapbook store I definitely need to visit?
Hello girls!! Yes, it does seem as though this is a dead zone around here. I live 60 miles south of chicago. I have been to the springfield scrap store you have there and it is very nice!! I live closer to the Champaign area but havn't been to a store there in a very long time. Well i hope you girls check back in here cause it would be nice to get to know ya.
