Stamp & Scrap
a Paper Arts Expo
Candilay Creations Too
You know the saying “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade”. Well nothing could be more true for Susan Dorland of Stamp Craft and Sheree Reiners of Candilay Creations Too. In our case, it was more like “When a promoter cancels a show, hold your own show” and that’s exactly what we did.
The Stamp & Scrap-A Paper Arts Expo was born in March, 2012 because Sheree had contracted to do a show and less than 3 weeks before, the show was canceled. She had purchased a ton of product with no place to sell it. “Let’s put together our own show” we naively agreed and for the next 2 weeks, we found a venue, secured some vendors, sent emails & flyers, and our first show came to fruition. Over 250 eager attendees came and said they spent more money at our show than they had in years at the larger shows.
With only four vendors at the first event, our motto became “Quality Not Quantity”. That is still our philosophy today.
We hope you enjoy what we are doing---we certainly do! If there are vendors you would like us to contact about participating in a future show or have any questions, comments or concerns, please don’t hesitate to let us know. This is as much your show as it is ours!
Thank you so much for your support!
