Thought it would neat to get a list going of scrapbook stores that we all like to go to since all the LSS privately owned around here have closed...

List your store and its city (chain or private):

Strongsville - Pat Catan's on Pearl Rd
Brunswick - Hollo's on Pearl Rd
Medina - Hobby Lobby on Pearl Rd
North Olmsted - Archiver's

(yes all on the same Pearl Rd)

How far is the Archiver's from Hobby Lobby? I thought we only had the Archiver's in Akron...(-;

Well, we just lost our last LSS today...now all we have down here is JoAnn Fabrics...and our JoAnn's has to be the WORST ever. The scrap area is bare bones! I'm seriously thinking about joining the Studio Calico monthly scrap kit. My girlfriend has been using them for a few months now and she's getting a ton of layouts done with each kit. It would probably save me alot of money in the long run too...(-;

The ones I frequent are:

Michael's in Avon (Detroit Road)
Pat Catan's in North Ridgeville and Westlake (both Center Ridge Road)
Archiver's in North Olmsted (on Great Northern Blvd.)

There's also a Joann's Superstore in North Olmsted (by Home Depot off of Lorain Road.) I stopped shopping there earlier in the year when they price matched one day with M's and refused to a couple of days later. They have horrible customer service.

My favorite LSS is The Embellished Scrapbook in Sandusky, OH. They have been open a little over a year & they are ALWAYS getting new stuff. I also like their "Garage Sale" section. They have an area in the back of the store to buy & sell pre-owned scrapbook supplies. It's an awesome way to find cheap supplies, and an even better way to sell your old or half-used supplies! They track what I sell & I get store credit to buy new supplies!

I also like:
Archivers, North Olmsted
Pat Catans, North Ridgeville (especially their huge clearance section in the back!)
JoAnns, North Olmsted
Michaels, Avon... although their CS is terrible
Hobby Lobby, Medina

There is also a scrapbook store in Lodi @ the Outlet Mall. They have a good selection of paper, but they don't seem to get new stuff very often.

I'd love to know about any other LSS around the Cleveland area!

I live east of Cleveland, in Chardon. Mentor isn't too far ( 10-15 min) and they have JoAnn, Michael's and just down the road is Pat Catan's. I also like Tuesday morning and Big Lot's. We have a LSS here in Chardon but that place is almost worthless.

I don't think there's anyone within 50 miles of me on here, is there?

Darn it! I wish I had read this before my trip.
We drove by that outlet twice and DH asked if I wanted to stop the on the way back. Why did I say no!?!

If it makes you feel any better I was just there week before last and walked out empty handed. Like someone else posted - mainly just paper (and stickers). Not too many newer items, very few embellishments, and their prices aren't what I would expect at an outlet. That outlet mall isn't great anyway - lots and lots of empty stores. I think the only thing my husband and I bought was 1 polo shirt from the Tommy Hilfiger store. Kind of a waste of time for us.

That does make me feel a little better. I'm trying to build my stash though so I bet I would have found something. I've been to the Jeffersonville one twice and cleaned house at Carters, Osh Kosh and Yankee. Both are such a long boring drive that I really don't try to go often.

I live in Columbus, Ohio. Here's the local near me...

*SCRAPBOOK GROUPIES-Gahanna. (HIGHLY RECOMMENDED SINCE I WORK THERE! WE DO HAVE THE BEST PAPER!)

*PIZAZZIT! SCRAPBOOK-Pickerington (tons of stuff @ this place, pricey to me)

*B&B SCRAPBOOKS- Powell (only been there once, maybe a year ago)

*MoJo SCRAPBOOKS- Westerville (never been there)

*RED LETTER JOURNALS- Grove City (Nice place, medium in size)

*SCRAPBOOK ART- Lewis Center (never been there either)

*SCRAPBOOKING BY LISA- Carnation, OH (this HUGE store is inside the Carnation Mall. Very nice!)

These are the local, privately owned stores that I know of.

PLEASE support them by spending money there!!! They close (cannot afford to stay open)when we spend our money elsewhere! So if you want your local stores to stay open, take your friends there & SHOP, SHOP, SHOP!!!

Btw, we have the huge chain stores like HobbyLobby, Archiver's, Michael's, & JoAnn's. (I shop here to, but ONLY to buy large things like punches & paper packs @ 40-50%off...the local stores are unable to offer such huge discounts, but I spend chunks in local stores)

Hope this was helpful.

I love Stamplistic in Amherst, Oh. They recently moved into a larger location (around the corner from their previous one) and it's very nice. Tons of stamps and scrapbook items. Good people, too.

A new LSS just opened in Niles, OH (Northeast, OH near Youngstown)

Corner of 422 and 169 in the strip mall. Good prices, decent selection. The owner seems to have a soft spot for anything with glitter, if you like bling paper this is a must stop as it's got stuff I haven't seen anywhere else.

The Dayton area has a few nice stores that I like:

Live Love Scrap in Fairborn (love the design of this store. They use lots of vintage furniture for displays. They have odd hours and don't seem to keep their website up-to-date)

Marco's Paper in Centerville (Haven't been to this store in awhile, but I get their newsletters and they have a lot of new stuff that I need to go check out)

Busy Beaver in Beavercreek (this is an all inclusive craft store that has been in Beavercreek for years. I don't like to shop there though because it is so cluttered that it is impossible to find anything.)

The Color Wheel Arts & Crafts in Springfield (This store is owned by a friend of mine. It started in Enon, then moved to Beavercreek and now she is moving to Springfield. She does a lot with pen & ink and paiting, but has a nice supply of papercrafting items - especially stamps)

Plus we have the big stores: JoAnn's, Michael's, Hobby Lobby, Crafts 2000, Flower Factory.

I live in the Cleveland area and my sister lives in Whitehall about 15-20 min from Scrapbook Groupies. I love when they have their rummage sales. I make it a point to come down and visit my sister those weekends if I can! I've gotten some great deals on partially used and things other crafters have made.

I live in the Fairborn/Beavercreek area. We have Stop & Crop in the Lofino's plaza off of 35 and there is
Simply Scrapbooks in the Elder Beerman plaza off of Dorothy Lane and Woodman in Kettering. I love both. Simply Scrapbooks has a wonderful selection of ribbon.

Simply Scrapbooks in Kettering, (suburb of Dayton), is awesome. They have all the new stuff from the best lines like Graphic 45, Sassafras Lass, Cosmo Cricket, Crate and on and on. I could go broke in there. Also, lots of embellies, stamps, tools, and other goodies--love it

I live in Steubenville Ohio an dthere are only 3 places actually in town, the rest are 40 minutes away in PIttsburgh. Which isn't far but when you just need one thing it can be a pain!

1. Create a room- a lot of merchandise but can be overwhelming even for a seasoned scrapper!
2.Joann's- Not a very good selection
3.Crop Circle- This is my shop. We are a crop shop first and foremost but we do specialize in custom embellishments!

Leebla, thank you for updating that Columbus area list!

It takes me about 2 hours to get there but I think I'll have to make a trip down there and stay at a friends house so I can have a full weekend of scrapbook shopping!!

Pat Catan's (Berea Rd, in Cleveland and Center Ridge Rd in Westlake). Sometimes WalMart has good products. The JoAnn's in Lakewood closed, and I have no idea where the closest one is located.

They closed their storefront, but they are going to maintain an online presence. She also is still going to host crops and classes. Awesome lady. Will support her any way I can.

Scrapbooking by Lisa in Alliance is a great store! Lots of specialty paper. I always go overboard buying flowers there! they have a great selection of cardstock colors too.

Although, when I want to really drop down and spend some money...Fairlawn is the place to go. Within a mile you have Archivers, Hobby Lobby (not open on sundays for people who don't know, Michaels and a like Supersize JoAnns. I only say Supersize b/c they have way more EK punchs than the one I have here in Canton.
