Scrapbook Shopping in Detroit

Before we left for our trip, I posted a message on a scrapbooking message board asking for local scrapbooking stores in Detroit. Scrappy Chic and Archivers are two that came up. And I'm so glad they did!
I loved Scrappy Chic. It was just a short drive from the museum/arcade my husband wanted to spend several hours in. So I got lots of shopping time. Great customer service and a LOT of new product make this a fantastic store. Scrappy Chic is in Livonia, Michigan. Here is their website: Scrappy Chic.
Later in the visit, we went by Archiver's in Novi, Michigan and picked up a few things there as well. Most of my finds are new fall lines from CHA 2013. I'd been wanting to find some things like BasicGrey's Persimmon collection. There are also Christmas papers, lots of stickers and Thickers and wood veneer embellishments. I'm in love with the new Allison Kreft line from Webster's Pages. My first page with this collection is almost done and I'll have the video and sketch up next week!
Here's the shopping video at YouTube:
It was a happy accident that some of the things I bought matched others. Usually in Archiver's, I don't let myself think too much. I go through the store once and pick some items, sift through them and then make one more pass. If I think too much, I'll over buy or I'll put something back and then regret it later. For me, it is a really different process than on-line shopping.
Thanks for stopping by!
