I was there today actually. I like it ok...but there are better ones around IMO. There is a new one downtown bangor that is pretty good, and Judy's Scrappin and Stampin in Oldtown is good...but the BEST one is in Trenton, ME (just pass nancy's and keep goin' and goin' thru ellsworth, about 30 min)....the Crop 'til you Drop Shop.

I've heard great things about Judy's... just haven't made it there. I don't get up there much and when I do I'd like to spend time with my friend and it's hard to go shopping with three kids!! They just don't like hanging at the scrapbook stores much!! LOL I'll have to ask her about the Crop til you Drop Shop... sounds great!!! TY

Alright, I've got to get in on all this Maine conversation!!! I'm in Southern Maine--
Windham to be exact. How many Maine SB stores have you guys been to? My absolute favorite so far is My Crop, Paper, Scissor store in Farmington. I go thru there often to my FIL's house. He lives in Franklin County. I go to The Memorybook Workshop in Gray a lot as well. I belong to the NYOBC chapter at that store. I've made some great SB friends there. Another great store is Murdock's in Turner.

I wish I would have known about the SB stores in the Bangor area a month ago. I don't get up that way very often at all but had to go to Washington County for work. I could have checked some out while I was in the neighborhood!! LOL

Hi gals,

I live in Hermon. I can't wait for AC Moore to open in September. I wanted to get a job there; but they didn't want to give me Mommy hours . Oh Well. I will have to look around more. I love Nancy's Store. I have never been to Judy's or the one in Trenton. I did go into the one in downtown Bangor when it was still stocking their shelves and have not been back there since. I will have to check it out again. I love Nancy's because they are so sweet there. My friends and I go there for their Wednesday Free Scrap night. I went in there when they were moving into there new place and Nancy gave me a punch holder for over the door; she said she wouldn't be using it anymore and wanted to know if I could use it. I thanked her and of course took it. I asked her if she wanted any money for it and her Daughter said, no Happy Early Birthday.
My friend Candy loves Judy's store so I guess I will have to check that one out soon.

Trish are you the lady who knows Donna H. and her sister Karen C. (Karen works with you in your store? I believer)? If so my other friend Candy did a workshop event at a school with you and loved the beaded wire words you make.

They are opening in september!!!!????? WOOOOO HOOOO!!! Old Navy isn't opening til end of Oct, so I assumed none of those places would be! I LOOOOVE ACMOORE!!!

I like Judy's ok. No place around here has "the good stuff" tho...Basic Grey, Gin-x...etc. So I end up buying most of my stuff online. It's too bad...I would much rather shop locally.

YES, YES, YES!!!!!!! I am soooooooooooooo excited that AC MOORE is opening in September!!!!!!!
I am with Colleen on the stores around here. I don't remember the last time I bought anything in the stores around here for scrapbooking stuff, mostly all online stuff. Basic Grey is absolutely my favorite product line and I will be jumping up and down in the aisle of whatever store gets it in first!!
The store Crop till you drop in Ellsworth is pretty good.
A little far to drive but hey it is for scrapbooking stuff so who cares!!

I have to tell you ladies that I am working temporarily for A.C. Moore . I have helping set the store up. It is quite a nice size store and so far all the stuff I have seen is wonderful. Of course I have not seen to much of the scrapbook stuff yet. At the meeting this morning I saw boxes from my minds eye and Sizzix. I wanted to dig into those so badly. I will have see if I can work in the scrapbook isle if it isn't already set up on Saturday. What fun that would be. Have a great weekend everyone.

Wow that sounds like fun!! I work for Bath & Body Works and I love to do floor changes and see all of the new products. It must be really hard at AC Moore with all of the great items there. I have thought about looking into some part time work there. I see signs and ads saying they are looking for help. It could be dangerous though - I KNOW I wouldn't come home with a pay check.

The opening is getting closer . A.C. Moore will have a soft opening on the 10th and the Grand Opening is September 14. So mark your calendars. I wish they sold more sizzlets though. They are pretty much the same ones as at Joann's except for one. They said they would order any other one that a customer wanted to buy. You would have to order it at the customer service desk. You would not pay for the item until it came in.

Hey Mainers! I live in Palermo ME (Route 3 between Augusta and Belfast). My daughter and her friend are scrappers too and they live in Portland. When my mom and I go there, like tomorrow, we love to hit Craftmania, AC Moore, Target, and Dollar Tree for cool scrapbook stuff. We have a LSS in Augusta too. Plus Michaels, Walmart and Dollar Tree. No shortage of places to buy stuff! But I am WAY overloaded in supplies and haven't been able to do much scrap booking in the past few months so I am trying hard to use up some before buying more. Temptaion always calls!
It's hard to get groups together in Maine due to geographic distances. If anyone knows of a public event, we should plan to go and meet!

There are crops in a couple of the Scrapbooking stores around the Bangor area. The store in Ellsworth has them all the time and they are usually free I think.
Nancy's has them as well, they have an all day crop one Saturday per month. They book up really fast there plus it cost $30.00. I was gonna go to the one this month but I would rather spend the $$$ on supplies!! I am not sure of any other crops in this area. Do any of the LSS have all day crops in your area?

Nancy's is awesome! I love supplies but paying the 30.00 is worth being able to scrap for 15 hours and not worry about anything else. I have my own scraproom and everything, but I just LOVE being around so many people who are avid about the same thing I am! Plus, Nancy is just hillarious! I PM'd you, your LSS is pretty decent Sheryl!

Hi sherylsmith51,

While you are in the Portland area, if you get over near Windham...check out Big Lots...they have a bunch of Scrapbooking stuff! Most of it is for $1.00! I just went there yesterday and found a bunch of stuff!

It is actually an awesome place to work, they (the company) really treat their employees well! I try to watch the sales and the clearance racks to get the most out of my paycheck, plus I LOVE those 40% off coupons at AC Moore! When you have three kids to dress and scrap you really have to pinch your pennies!

Hey all!

I'm near Rockland. No place to shop here (If someone knows otherwise, please fill me in!)
I like going to Big Lots in Portland and if you have ever been to Big Al's Odd Lot in Wiscasett - they have a ton of papers and stickers and 'stuff' from Current for $.10 a sheet!!!! I've gone a little nuts there but the stuff is different from what I'm finding in the LSS's and CHEAP!

BTW, The LSS in Augusta on Western ave carries Basic Grey !

Hi Scrapinsuzy,

I live in Gorham just around the corner from Falmouth...we have some really great scrap stores near us...My all time FAVORITE is Murdock's in Turner, it is just outside of Auburn. They have their own line of paper and have artists that paint the Maine scenes and then it is made into paper. I am waiting for them to do a Mt. Katahdin one...then there is the "Start Scrappin and Stampin" in Scarborough over behind the Shaws. AC Moores and great and Michaels! Then like Julieanddanny said...Big Lots has some really good things at great prices. There is another good scrap shop in Gray too. I have hit them all and really really like Murdocks! Hope this helps. Hi all you Mainers....Sophie65

Woo hoo, finally some neighbors from Maine! The last time I posted/checked in it was almost a year ago. I'm from Windham (just a couple miles from Falmouth scrapinsuzy--if you want to pm me for some further info, feel free) and my absolute fave store in Maine now is Murdock's. I just went there last week--hubby bought me a $125 GC for Christmas. I still need to spend more than $80 of it if you can imagine that! Anyway, getting ready to go to a retreat in April so I'm looking forward to some extended scrapping time. My friend and I also host a retreat in October in the NH White Mountains. If anyone is interested, let me know I can add you to my mailing list of invitees!

My friend (spinn477) and I are going for the weekend. We are driving down on Thursday and leaving Saturday after our classes. We didn't sign up for the Saturday night crop becuase we are going to the Friday one...and with all the classes we are taking, I know we will be all cropped out and ready to get home! We are taking classes on both Friday and Saturday....but made sure to leave lots of room in our schedules for shopping

Is 'Murdocks' on our way?? We HAD agreed no scrap shopping on the way down....but....we haven't discussed the drive home

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.

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.

Yes, Memory Lane right off center street. It's on Coburn St right near The Ground Round. You have to go!!! Seriously. I love Murdocks but I love Memory Lane better...plus I live about 4 min. from there. Tell her Tracy sent you! rofl I feel like I'm there enough. I went to the one in the mall but just walked thru, wasn't impressed. the ones in Farmington didn't impress me at all either. There is one in Topsham that I like as well, but Memory Lane is my fav. She's closed on Sun and Mon but you have to check her out. Let me know when you go!!

BTW, the one in Gray is awful IMO, and I'm not fond of the owner as well. Way out of date.

It's not huge but it's good sized, and she has all the newest stuff!! She's way more current than Murdocks is IMO.

I went to one in Winthrop~~I wouldn't go back let's just say. There is one in Lisbon that looks nice but I haven't gone in. I think she built it in her garage.

My girlfriends and I took a road trip last year and hit 5 store in a day. it was a lot of fun. sadly, many are closing down these days. There is a tiny one in Lewiston on Maine street, but I've never been. I think I can get what I need at Memory Lane and really, I don't NEED anything!

I'll have to check out Joanns today. I wish our Joanns was bigger, and better. I rarely find anything in there anymore! I like the Joanns in Portland SO much better. Have you been to that one?

The Dollar Tree in Auburn had a lot of brads today. I don't need more brads either, but they had many more colors than joanns did. Went there too and got the summer cardstock stack!! I couldn't find anything else I needed! lol

I went to joanns the other day and restocked on brads and eyelets.I saw the summerstack but that wasnt on sale but the others were 50 percent off.I wish I could find things at the dollar tree but I never find any.The only thing there I like is one time I found good brand fiber for 1 dollar,thats like 3 at walmart.I use the fiber on tags.

No, we don't do the Bee Scrappy one, though she came to ours last year to sell product. I think we'll have Jen from Memory Lane come this year~~Her product is way more up to date than bee scrappy.

My girlfriend and I host our own every fall....columbus day weekend. There are usually about 25 people or so~~this will be our 3rd year and the year before we went to a CM one. I liked the concept, just not that particular retreat. So, we decided to host our own.
