I just love an after holiday sale. I was walking through my some of my favorite stores just wasting time on an extended lunch break when I decided to go to Kate's Paperie on 57th street in Manhattan (between 6th and 7th Avenue). I shop at Kate's often--actually so often, they know my name ala Norm in Cheers--so it was no surprise that they rolled their eyes knowing that I was going to make someone work hard in the paper or card/envelope section of the store.
As I was walking the paper aisle, I noticed that one of the A-frames has a discount sign on it. All of the papers were Christmas related and this was almost Valentine's Day. Most of the paper was wrapping paper which is usually too thin for my purposes but then they had this Cavalini- type paper that was perfect for a future project. Originally $4.50 per sheet, it was now on sale for $1.00. I never have this kind of luck. Normally it happens to people like Shu-Ju who are much more bargain savvy or lucky than I am.
So, needless to say, I bought out their stock. I already know what type of project that I will be working on. Maybe I will go trolling for sales after Valentine's Day.
One view of the Christmas paper.
Even another view.
