Happy 10th Anniversary Crafty Capers!

Hard to believe it but Crafty Capers turns 10 years old today! The time has really flown by. About this time 10 years ago my sister Kim (the hairdresser) and I were madly loading up our cars and hauling boxes of stamps up to Rutherford Mall in Nanaimo (now known as Nanaimo's North Town Center). It took us way longer to set up than we figured so we were probably not up and running until 11 am or so. We stayed in the mall until Dec 24. At that time we carried 5 stamp companies:
  • PSX (now out of business, I miss their images!)
  • Hero Arts
  • Peddlers Pack
  • Denami Design
  • House Mouse (House Mouse was made by Stampa Rosa but are now made by Stampabilities)
We travelled the malls on Vancouver Island in the spring of 2002 and moved into our first storefront May 1 2002 with Creative Images Hair Studio (Kim) in Lantzville. In July 2009 we moved to our current location on Bowen Road.
We have had many adventures and made so many friends over the past 10 years. Thank you to everyone who has supported Crafty Capers and here is to 10 more years!
To help celebrate stop by the store this week and enter to win a free class (maximum value $27)! For those of you who are mail order customers send me an email or leave a comment on this blog and we'll do a draw for a little something for you as well. :)
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
