I'm a few days away from summer vacation (I'm a teacher) and I want like a few scrapbook stores to put on my agenda. I will be in Boston, Portland,ME, NH, VT, Niagara Falls, Columbus, OH, Louisville, KY, Nashville, Atlanta. I live in So Cal and I have the national chains nearby. Any suggestions on fantastic stores on the way and I will gladly support the LSS.
I'm not familiar with the areas you are traveling to, but if you search for any LSS's online, make sure to call them before going. A lot of stores in my area have closed, but they still pop up on search engines. Have fun!
There is a cool little scrapbook store in Cumming GA, north of Atlanta. It's called EMI Scrapbooking Store. You can find them on Facebook by that same name. You'll want to definitely call ahead and / or check her FB page for the hours because they vary a lot due to the owner also caring for her elderly mother. It is truly a great little shop and the owner, Susan, is really nice. Once a year in March she hosts a weekend Teresa Collins Workshop event that people come from all over to attend. If you have the time while in Atlanta, I recommend making the trip up to Cumming!
I am in Columbus oh & we have 3 now. one is Red Letter Journal in Grove City..one is Scrapbook Art in Polaris. the other is Legacy Paper Arts in Powell. The store in Grove City is great & nice owner I haven't been to Scrapbook Art for a few yrs but I used to go there often. It was great too with great people too. I haven''t been to the Powell one. I will send you a pm with their sites
