Crafty Announcement 1 of 2 for MD/VA/DC Peeps

It's finally official! I have been trying to find a venue to hold a Crafty Yard Sale - where people would rent tables to sell their excess crafty supplies (or in my case, my unnaturally large collection of retired SU stamp sets), and the crafty community would come shop and BUY OUR STUFF. At last, it has been arranged! YES!

I spoke with the activities director at the Thomas Farm Community Center in Fallsgrove (Rockville), and the City of Rockville is actually sponsoring the event. Here's the details:

Here's the contents of their letter:


The City of Rockville’s Thomas Farm Community Center is working with a local stamping and scrapbook artist and is sponsoring a stamping and scrapbook yard sale. It is a great opportunity for you to sell your craft supplies you no longer need. The yard sale is Saturday, April 10, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The community center is located at 700 Fallsgrove Drive in Rockville at the intersection of West Montgomery Avenue, Fallsgrove Drive and West Gude Drive; only a few miles from Route 270.

The cost for a space with one table and two chairs is $20 for City residents and $25 for nonresidents. Finished products will not be sold, however, craft supplies, such as, stamps, ink, paper, tools and books are welcome.

You can register by visiting the City of Rockville’s web site at calling the center at 240-314-8840 or visiting the center in person.


So if you have stuff you want to sell, please give them a call and snag a table. The bigger and better we make this event, the greater the chance we can make it annual! How fantastic would that be?!?!?

If you don't plan to sell, please plan to come shop!

  1. Great idea! BTW - retired SU stamps are on my list of "favorite things". I don't suppose you'd be interested in emailing me a list of what you think needs to go so I can give you a few less things to haul to your sale next month, hmm?


I'd love to hear what you really think! :-)
