Maine people! Huzzah!

I'm in Farmington, the town with TWO scrapbooking stores. That was a bit of a surprise when I moved here!

We've got a great store here called "Crop, Paper, Scissor" and they do Crop and Shops on the first and third Friday of each month if you're in the area. I sadly have not gone to one yet partially from timing but partially because I'm nervous since I don't know anybody.

Then again, you can always come knit with me on Monday's for Stitch and ********. I seem to love the rhyming activities.

Hi Lindsay!! I've been to Oxford a couple of times. The Oxford plains speedways!! Used to go to SHow, Shine, and Drag every year. Welcome aboard. I only have one LSS around me right now. That's Start Scrappin and Stampin in Sanford. For my sb supplies I have to got o So. Portlans to ACMoore or Michaels. Although the new Target here in Biddeford has a nice sbing selection but it doesn't seem to get refreshed. OK I've yacked your ear off! Enjoy this forum it's awesome!

Hi!I have been to the store in Sanford.I liked it but kinda far to go.I like Bee Scrappy in Oxford,The prices are great!You should check it out when you come over to the speedway!There is also a scrapbook store at the Auburn Mall but its a bit pricey.I wish there were more stores around.I have gone to Jo Anns and craftmania.I seem to find more embellishment things there.Most scrapbook store s Ive been to carry mostly paper and stickers.

I know. I like the store in Sanford if I don't want to pay shipping for some of the things here. They obviously don't have nearly as much as sb.com but at least I can save some and visit my grandparents. I haven't checked out the JoAnns around here. I don't think they sell sbing stuff although it has been a while.

Hi,I havnt ordered any thing off the internet yet for scrapbooking.Im waitting till I find a store id like to make a big order from because I dont want to pay 5 shipping for a 10 dollar order.I liked what I saw at Jo anns.When I was there it was like 40 % off all scrapbooking things.I got some good deals!I like craftmanias selection, but it seems to cost more there.

Have a craftmania but I've only been in it once. Not sure why I never went back. Maybe I just don't think of it. I hear you on shipping. I hate paying shipping.

The superstore at this site is a great place to order supplies from. You can even get the E-Cuts without shipping charge. Just download them. They make great looking pages.

Anyone out there from the mid-coast area?

Hmm, I think I've heard of that. Camden anyways. Is it before or after Bar Harbor?

Before Bar Harbor, about half way up the coast. It's a fairly small town.

There are 2 stores in Farmington, an awesome one in Turner that you have to go to, another awesome one in Auburn, and one that's not as great in Oxford (mechanic falls) For such a small state we have a lot of LSS's! lol

I have been to both in Farmington,I didnt like the one on Main st.It was so tiny you couldnt turn around and the items they did have were very dated.they did have a large selection of stamps although I didnt see any I like.The other store had lots of paper but not a lot of ribbon or embellishments that I liked.I LOVE THE STORE IN TURNER!!!!Its my new FAVE!!!Its FAB!!!I do like BEE SCRAPPY which is in OXFORD.They have a good selection.I DO like AC moore and Micheals for my large supply orders.The store in Grey ,Didnt care for it much,no stamps and hardly any ribbon.
