I got a steal of a deal from a lady selling off all her stamping supplies - I found her on Craig's list and when I tell you a steal....... I mean a STEAL!!!
For $100 bucks I received the following: (and this is what I can remember.......)
at least 15 complete sets of stamp kits, the ink spinning carousel completely filled with ink pads including their coordinating refill bottles, 14 rolling stamps - both wide and regular sizes, the handles, the ink cartridges, ink pad cleaner, ink cleaner bottles full, 4 ink blender pens, 10 markers, two punch and stamp kits (I have no idea what they are called but they have a punch, 8 stamps and three ink pads in each kit in a tin box.... really cool!) 10 stamping up idea books and catalogs, several organizers, around 15 various other stamps from different manufactures, tons of pencils and pens, two large punches, a paper crimping tool, a bone folder, tons of embossing kits and powders, the list goes on and on........... after doing a little research I found that the carousel filled with ink alone was worth more than I paid for everything (retail value)! I literally received thousands of dollars worth of stamping supplies for only $100! I actually asked her if she was a sales rep for Stampin Up as she had so much of it...... and she said no way, I just liked stamping and now I want to make beaded jewelry so I am clearing out my craft room to make room for beads!!!!!
You have got to LoVe rich people that bore easily!!!!!!!
Here are a few pictures of some of the goodies...... excuse the mess - still trying to find homes for all the goodies!
