I tried to get this posted earlier in the week, but boy does life get in the way sometimes! Anyhoo, if you've been following me on FaceBook, I had a contest to name my big Saturday after Black Friday sale. Up for grabs were over $100 of products from the Conquest Keepsakes Paper Studio store. I received some pretty good suggestions, I wish I could have used them all! But Lois Glossip was the winner with "Vicki's Vanishing Values Sensational Saturday Sale!" I love alliterations, so my hat's off to Lois for coming up with such a cool name! There were some other great ones too, so I felt that everyone who participated in the naming contest (including my far flung friends from Ohio and Texas) should receive a little somethin' somethin' from CKPS! Sometimes you never know what you'll get when you chime in on a contest on FB! So thank you to Candy, Shirley, Lynda, Diane, Kerry, Trae, Angela and Lois for participating! Trae, I need your mailing address, so email or Private Message me on FB with the particulars so I can get you hooked up too! As my friend Candy says, "My Wonder Wall Runneth Over!"

Sooo, what IS Vicki's Vanishing Values Sensational Saturday Sale all about? It's about GREAT DEALS on all your favorite vintage, distressed, metal, bling and paper arts products! Everything, and I do mean EVERYTHING in the store is sensationally priced to move it off my wall and into your hands at unheard of prices! The accountant does not like inventory at the end of the year (!!) and I've got to make room for all the juicy new products that will be rolled out in January at the Craft & Hobby Association trade show. Everything will be at least 30% off and up to 60% off on some items. You REALLY don't want to miss this, as it includes some of the latest Tim Holtz, Maya Road, 7 Gypsies, Graphic 45, Ten Seconds Studio, Tattered Angels, Kaisercraft, and Ranger products, just to name a few! You'll want to get here early for the best selection! NOTHING is exempt from these sale prices except for preview products, BUT if you like what you see of the preview items, you can preorder and receive a 30% discount on Saturday only! (Sorry, this discount does not apply to Tim Holtz's Vagabond.) Does it get any better than this? I will also be demoing the Tim Holtz Sizzix Vagabond die cutter. If you want to see what this gorgeous, mighty cutter/embosser can do, come over and take a test drive! We are the first in Springfield to have the Vagabond, so come check it out!

But wait, there's more! Everyone who shops here on Saturday between 8a and 12 noon, will receive a free gift for taking the time to come over and deplete me of stock! These nifty little spiffs are not old papers/products, they are 2010 release products, including some of the latest items from Maya Road, Tim Holtz, Ranger, 7 Gypsies, and many more! There is NO purchase minimum for these free items. If you spend a penny, you get one (and for my British friends, I am not talking about a free restroom visit). :-) So save a few dollars for Saturday and be sure to get here before Noon so you can add a little extra cheer to your crafty holiday shopping!

Here are just a few of the values you will find here on Saturday (these are on in-stock items only and do not apply to special orders, preview items, or electronic die cutters):

All paper pads and loose sheet papers, 50% off
All chipboard products, 40% off
All soldering products, 50% off
All mists and sprays, 40% off
All dies and embossing folders, 40% off
All embellishments and ribbons, 40% off
All ink products and adhesives, 40% off
All metal working supplies and tools, 50% off
All other tools, 30% off
All jewelry accessories, findings, wire, and chains, 40% off
All wood products, 30% off
All storage products, 50% off
All binding products, 40% off
Plus several bins of onesies and twosies (it could be ANYTHING), 60% off!

My hoarding habit will be your gain on Saturday! All products will be color-coded so you can see at a glance what the discount is. If Brown/FedEx is running on time, we might even have a preview of the new Graphic 45 paper line, Once Upon a Springtime. (No promises, but I do know it has shipped!)

But wait (again, I'm not done), there is even more! If you place a special order (an order for a product I do not currently have in stock that is not a preview item), you'll get a special Saturday-Only discount! It's so sensational, I can't even type it! A great opportunity to shop for the very latest products and save on everything, not just one couponed item! Can we say, Merry Christmas?!

The sale starts Saturday at 8am and goes to 8pm. The "Spend a Penny" free items run from 8a til Noon. So come over and check out the sale, see the classroom space, get a preview of classes to come and enjoy some holiday snacks and cheer! See you Saturday!
