Grand Opening!

We are so ready for the Grand Opening celebration coming on Saturday, June 12th, from 10am-6pm! Come check us out - we are located at 15 Bloomfield Ave in Montclair, right down the way from Panera Bread. The staff has been so busy getting everything ready for a fun-filled, "get your crafty on" kind of day!

We will start in the morning with goodie bags filled with all kinds of craft goodness, made by the ultra-lovely staff at Rock Paper Scissors. We won't tell you what is in them but the first 25 people to the store will get some fun surprises ... as well as their very own cherry pie! The good, old fashioned retro kind of cherry pie!

You can feast your eyes on all the fab Amy Butler fashions and bags! Yes, the trunk show has arrived and is being modeled by all of our lovely manni friends (mannequins, that is) as we speak. Just feast your eyes on that front window! We have Amy's complete Love collection, both cotton and Home Dec, as well as most of her patterns. Watch for some of our fashionista staff to be modeling the collection throughout the day.

All day long, kids can make a heatfelt and handmade card for Dad, or Grandpa, or that special guy in their life, all in anticipation of Father's Day next week. Stop at the card table and glue, stamp and embellish your message in a way that your hero will treasure forever.

Naomi Jacobs will be joining us from 11am-1pm to beautify some arms with henna tattoos. Let go laughing and try a tat! No worries ... these gorgeous designs are safe and natural and wear off within a month. I think I will even try one of them!

Glen Ridge Mayor (and friend) Peter Hughes will do the honor of cutting the red ribbon at 2:00, marking the official Grand Opening of Rock Paper Scissors! I extend a heatfelt thank you, in advance, to Peter for his time.

Claire Baker of Montclair Made will be hosting some open crafting in our classroom. Come make brown paper books to jot your ideas, the coolest of retro tags, and other goodies. Claire makes awesome and clever items out of recycled goods. Visit Claire and her helpers and start livin' green!

At 5:00, we will draw the names for the fabulous crafty raffle baskets! Each basket is filled with crafty goodies and freebies and surprises and other good stuff. Come check them out! Everyone gets a chance. Grab your tickets when you get to the store and drop them in the bucket of your choice. Winner need not be present to win. Though you just might want to be!

All day long, we will have food to nibble on and crafty goodness to share. Our local artist friends have graced our space with some of their amazing creations. Check out our collection of vintage beads and gorgeous paper and fancy and very, very cool embellishments and really fun embroidery drawers and, oh let's not forget, the unbelievable fabric and vintage buttons and vintage paper packs and ... I have to stop now. I know I am rambling. We hope you can join us. We are all just so excited to show off this happy beautiful creative space we love so much!

Until Saturday,
