Went to Big Lots yesterday as they were unloading the new stuff for the week and they had Basic Grey paper packs for $5!! They also had the BG doilies $1 sheet. LOADS of other BG items -- brads, buttons, felties, rubons, etc. Cleaned mine out of paper packs and doilies and put a dent in the brads and buttons.

Dang it, my BL just has junk. Real scrappy junk that no one in their right mind would buy. SEND ME YOUR BIG LOTS!

Our BL has junk too! It's been awhile since I shopped it though. Maybe I should check it out again.

I went to BL this morning and found an American Crafts 8x8 red album for $6.00! It was still in the packaging and much less than the LSS. Also got some Bazzill card stock. There were some BG items but nothing I really wanted. Also they now have a frequent shopper card with a good reward/coupon program.

Great buys! Lucky you!

We had two BL near us.
One never carried any sb stuff.
The other had tons and then it started to not get as much.

I think they get stuff based on demographics, that is why some have sb stuff and others have a little or none.

Same here.
One has an okay crafting section, the other has virtually nothing.

My BL doesn't have much but last weekend when I was about an hour away from home going to a LSS I passed a BL and stopped in. They had several things from the BG Halloween line. I picked up paper, brads (extra packs to use for swaps), buttons, and tiny skull shaped candy boxes. They also had some boy type line (with dinosaurs) and a few $1 stamps. I did check my local BL on Monday and they didn't have anything. Perhaps I should check again to see if they just hadn't put it out yet.

I get the occasional find at BL,,,,

last time I was there, I picked up Bazzill CS, which was a MISTAKE, because now I love the stuff

I am almost afraid to look again

I went yesterday, and bought some BG stuff, some Bazzill, some BG dollar stamps, marked down to 50 cents, then 20% off, etc etc etc.

I'm trying to scrapfast but I really really really want some BG paper. I guess I know where I'm going on my lunch hour.

Where do you find the 20% off coupon?

I, too, found some GREAT stuff at my BL! Who knew?? The altered composition book in my gallery was all made using stuff from my haul (except for the stamps; already had those!).
Probably my FAVE thing is the BG [un]DRESSED self-adhesive chipboard pieces. I got the "elbow" alphabet and the "recess" pack.

I went to mine today.....thanks for the peer pressure guys...! They had some BG stuff, I got a pack of painted brads, BG Ambrosia chipboard letters, MS metal 'snow/winterland' frames and some journaling tags with overlays. Total=$9.

Mine had buttons too but I didn't get any, I thought $3 for 30? buttons was a bit much...

I went today too--mine had some BG chipboard letters, ribbon, and buttons, but no paper packs... But I did find the Bazzill packs and picked up a couple of those.

My BL had a few BG embellies but no papers. They also had the BG Sugar Rush card kit for 5. They did have packs of GCD Studios for 5 that used to go for 20 at Ms. Decent selection if you like their stuff. Mine had Bazzill too. I only got some real cheap Wasau cardstock for making cards to donate and a pack of Eskimo Kisses epoxy stickers since I have the papers and letters. A pack of stickers and 75 sheets of white cardstock for $2.57 not bad.

Great finds! Our BL is pretty junky as has little to no scrapping stuff, so I gave up going there. I'm glad for those who have found great deals at theirs, though!

Thanks so much for posting this! I stopped by my BL today and they had several BG things. The only paper was the Obscure line which I didn't really like.

BUT, they had the chocolate chipboard albums for $3! And I got the elbow chipboard letters, some bling rubons, journal notes, and a few other trinkets. Great finds!

Amazing deals! I'm trying not to buy stuff for a while so I'm REALLY happy I don't have a BLs near me-- I wouldn't have been able to resist!

Okay, so so far I've hit 3 Big Lots and have found Periphery paper packs, Eerie doilies and Origins doilies.

I found Sugar Rush buttons and Wisteria brads.

I am not a big fan of the felties and chipboard but they had plenty of those too. Also had a couple of the Bling It rub-ons. Saw some various sticker sheets (the ones that come in the paper packs) loose but not overly interested in those either. There were also some EErie treat boxes kits.

Have 2 more stores to hit next week when I am in that area.

Ours had the Bazzill packs but have had them for quite some time now. LOTS of paper pads from GCD Studios (some nice papers in them) for $5/pad. Gonna hit my local one tomorrow on the way out of town to see if anything came in this week!! (FINGERS CROSSED)

I always find great stuff at BL. I got a MS ribbon box for $4!! I was all excited. Find lots of Bazzil Cards stock packs as well for a few dollars each.
I recently have been having good luck with scrappy stuff at TJM as well. MS stuff, EK, etc. Got a huge 18x18 MS scrapbook for $10!! They were $80 when they first came out at M's. It's always so much fun to find a scrappy bargain. Just don't tell my husband!!

mine had the paper and the cutout overlay templates in one design/color for $1 -- in addition to the usual stickers, embellies and stuff they have. it's a good place to shop.
