CHA products coming soon!


I am in the process of adding the new releases from BasicGrey and Pink Paislee to the website. I am still debating which other new releases to order, even though that means I've missed some specials. I'd rather under-order this time around and be alive for CHA Summer!

I don't think I'll be ordering the Making Memories release. Here's why... Though just about EVERYONE loves MM - it is EVERYWHERE. It's at my Target, at Michael's. Heck, I wouldn't be surprised to see it at the grocery store or CVS. Everywhere. And I just have a hard time selling products that are everywhere without selling at or below cost. And really... what's the point of doing that?

While I love giving you great deals - a little margin is needed to make this thing worthwhile (and, believe me, the margin is LITTLE). Thank God I have a day job, or there would be no PaperCents.com.

I really try to order product lines that are otherwise hard to find. It is very scary to have have a stock room full of product and find it driving a shopping cart down the scrapbooking aisle at Target!

Tell me why I'm wrong! Leave a comment below.

So, that's my whining for the month - mostly done for educational purposes, I swear. Next month's whine? The high cost of shipping - it really costs us at least as much as we charge. It is ridiculously expensive to ship paper (which is heavier than you might think!)

Well I don't think you're whining. If I can find something at Target then I'd buy it there. I shop online because I want new and different-the latest stuff that's available. As for shipping... the $$$ keeps going up on that.
