I am not sure whether to call this a "FIND"; a "HAUL"; a "Yahoo moment" or perhaps something else. Well, whatever you call it, I must show you.
Periodically I swing by a few Thrift stores and Goodwill Shops when out running errands. I came across these two boxes. Taped closed and marked "Blank Greeting Cards for Card Making" and "Blank Greeting Cards for Crafting". I just HAD to take a look. All of the cards are 4x6. One box contained a nice variety of printed designs on the front and good quality cardstock. They were grouped in packs of 10 with envelopes and had a rubber band wrapped around each pack. The other box contained colored/textured cards with envelopes probably used for card making/adorning, etc. Same situation - grouped in packs of 10 and rubber banded and good quality cardstock. A quick count - each box contained 250... yes...250 cards/envelopes. Prices on the boxes were listed as $4.94. SOLD! I absolutely could not pass this up. While the quantity of cards is a bit overwhelming, I'm sure they will be put to good use whether it is writing/sending; gifted; and perhaps in some swaps. If you are interested in a trade/swap, please let me know.
The other finds shown below were found at different local Thrift Shops.
I love a good flat/correspondence card - even if it is listed as an invitation. $.99. I've seen these at Jo-Ann's Fabric/Craft stores.
These were two new packs of flat cards with envelopes originally from Ikea. $.59 each.
These are new packs of 10 note cards/envelopes. Two packs wrapped together - $.99 each. I think these will make great cards to use around the Christmas holidays.
These next two new stationery sets were marked as $2.00 each, BUT were in the 75% off bin! They had to be rescued. I will definitely enjoy using them.
Note Card pack, $.25.
I have been looking for an address book for when traveling or on road trips. I think this one will work out perfectly! $.99.
