Welcome to our new series! “Inside Scrapbooking Stores” is meant to focus on those brick and mortar LSS’s that we so love and appreciate! Without further ado, here is a virtual tour inside our first featured LSS:
For Keeps Sake Scrapbook SuperStore, in St. Louis, Missouri, USA is a huge 6500 square foot superstore! They carry all major scrapbook lines and are always on the lookout for brand new companies to promote such as, Graphic 45 and Dream Street Papers. Photo above shows store owners, Nancy Norberg at left and Timi Taylor at right.
For Keeps Sake hosts major scrapbook events at least 2 times per year as well as several crops each month. This year, they’re hosting 6 internationally known designers for the Scrap St. Louis event: Lance Anderson (Rusty Pickle); Heidi Grace (Heidi Grace Designs & Fiskars); Danelle Johnson (Creative Imaginations); Missy Jaycox (7 Gypsies); Tracey Niehues (K&Company) and Joey Otlo (Bazzill) will all be there! In addition, they are just starting to take reservations for their annual weekend crop retreat in October.
For Keeps Sake offers great classes from instructors whose work has been seen in major publications. Take a look at the huge classroom space. Hmmm, I wonder what projects those ladies are working on?
Nancy, the store manager says, “We pride ourselves on our friendly staff and outstanding customer service. We hope you visit For Keeps Sake soon – where something new happens everyday!” So, if you are ever in the area, I’m sure For Keeps Sake Scrapbook SuperStore would love you to stop in and say hi!
