HOT OFF THE PRESS - 2015 SHOP HOP INFO!!
I just returned from a meeting I had tonight in Tampa with all the area Stamp/Scrapbook stores. We discussed the details of the 2015 Main Street Shop Hop! I am SO EXCITED!! Here are some details (more will follow as they become available)!
March 20th - March 29th (two weekends)
Notice the date is about a month later than last year. Last year's earlier date interfered with other events being held in 2015 - so we decided to change our dates this year.
HOURS OF THE SHOP HOP (same as last year):
Friday, March 20th: 10AM - 8PM
Saturday, March 21st: 10AM - 8PM
Sunday, March 22nd: 12PM - 6PM
Monday, March 23rd: Thursday, March 26th: 10AM - 6PM

Saturday, March 28th: 10AM - 6PM
Sunday, March 29th: 10AM - 5PM
RESERVATIONS: Bags for the 2015 Main Street Shop Hop are $10. Come to The Stamper's Cove to reserve your bag NOW!! We only have 75 bags to sell - our customer base is much larger this year, so I expect the bags to go quickly!
The overall theme this year is "The Main Street Shop Hop."
The Stamper's Cove theme this year will be a Flower Shop! The other stores are in the process of selecting their store themes, so more info on all the themes will follow. Here's what we need to do next:
- Start thinking about ideas for our 'tag' and our 2-Page layout!
- We will need to set up a 'photo' area - ideas?
- Volunteers: we will need many, many, many volunteers for The Stamper's Cove. Last year we had 157 customers THE FIRST DAY!! Clearly, I cannot do it myself. I will need your help!
- We will begin making our tags/layouts in early January. I will send out an email with dates/times
