Sadly, Another Scrap Store Closes

Paper Tales in Eastpointe, Mi is closing. This store, Paper Tales is so out of the way for me, that I have only been there twice. I still remember the first visit on a dark, rainy night while spending the weekend with Courtney (she lived in Troy) as Ron was in China. We really liked it as it was new, fresh and let us explore an area we had not seen much of. Then they moved. Then daughter moved. I had no taxi ride. I had thought of making a sweep thru lower Michigan in the spring to see new or old favs. But they will all be gone, if the economy doesn't pick up.It's sad and there are still some stores very much on the wire.

Here are the details of the sale. I will also update my side bar.

""It is with great sadness that I am announcing that Paper Tales will be closing its doors in February. The decision to close has been very difficult.

When we opened in December 2004, I had no idea how much this place and you would come to mean to me.

We feel fortunate that you have let us be part of your lives. The legacy you leave us with is overwhelming.

Our inventory liquidation sale begins now. Most things in the store will be 25% off, with a few exceptions. Our vintage items will not be included in the sale as our Etsy store will continue. Many of our fixtures will be for sale.""

  1. Hi Jan,
    Although I have never shopped at this particular store, I hate it when any store has to close due to the economy. So far,the Scrapbook Peddler is still open and I hope that it continues to do so.
    Take care my friend and have a blessed day.
    p.s Regarding the Asian image, I found her on Etsy, Phindy's Place. Phindy has an assortment of digi images of all ethnic backgrounds. *Kind of similar to Mo's Digital Pencil Images*


Thank you for stopping by and sitting a spell with me and mine. I hope you take away a smile!
