Use Stamps Sale

held annually in Zoar, Ohio.

Hello everyone!  I just got back from the annual Used Stamp Sale held in Zoar, Ohio by June Knaack of the 1870's Shoppe.  Zoar is a 'historical' town with plenty of really cool gardens and old time businesses to check out ... but the hidden treasure in my mind is the stamping store called the 'The Stamp Pad'.  

My friend Lana (Blest With Stamps) has had a table at this sale over the past few years and this year she asked me if I'd like to share the table with her.  I don't usually sell ANY of my stamps but with hubby retiring I figure it's about time to 'thin things out' a bit ... so I said SURE!  Here is a picture of our table at the beginning of the day.  Needless to say Lana had more than I did (being my 1st time and all ... wasn't sure what to take) but I did manage to have FOUR 12x12 drawers filled with stamps, etc. to peddle!

Before the doors open to the public ... the vendors have a chance to go around and make their purchases first (nice perk for booking a table).  The above photo shows what it looked like at the beginning!

 THEN THEY OPENED THE DOORS
AND THEY ALL CAME FLOODING IN!

Mind you, we were set up in the fire department and there is also a historical school house where vendors are set up too!  I didn't make it over there this year but I guess it was elbow to elbow!

I'm happy to say that Lana & I did GREAT!  
Lana sold everything except four boxed sets ...
and I sold everything except four individual stamps!

YAHOO!  More cash to spend on NEW STUFF and I didn't even spend my earnings at the other tables ... well I did spend $4 so that wasn't too bad!  TeeHee!  

Seems like FOUR was our lucky number today!!
What a fabulous time I had (Thanks Lana) and to those ladies that I met today who actually FOLLOW MY BLOG ... just want to extend a big HELLO and THANKS ... it was nice to meet in person!!!
See you soon!

  6. What a great idea to have a sale of used images- I know it would have been a riot! So, which IS better- 50% or 1/2 off?
