If you're anything like me you will always be in search of a great stationery bargain. I try to find these gems literally everywhere I go. Whether at a craft shop or a supermarket I often have my feelers out for whatever I can find that can be used as letter paper or embellishments for my letters or even just as gifts for pals. I thought I would do a little shop showcase of what's available in several places where I am currently residing, right here in the United States. Later on, when I am back in the UK I will do a showcase of inexpensive finds in that country.
I live in a rather prime place for finding lovely bits here in Florida. Aside from having a Walmart within walking distance (seriously, Walmart is probably where I get about 50% of my crafting/snail mailing supplies and quite a bit of that comes from the clearance racks at the back of the store), I also have a Hobby Lobby across the street, a Bealls Outlet (local Florida chain--lots of great goodies though) also across the street, farther down the main drag there is Tuesday Morning, Big Lots and farther still Marshall's & Dollar Tree. Those are the ones I frequent the most and generally find loads of great goodies to use in letter writing, though I also find some lovely things at Target and TJ Maxx (same company as Marshall's and TK Maxx in Europe). I particularly love Target's Dollar Spot bins and last week found some really great items which I will share with you now.
