A little gem for those paper craft artists in the San Gabriel Valley!

Hello fellow scrapbookers and paper craft artists!  So, sometimes it is really annoying to go into a nearby Michaels or Joanns craft store, only to find the exact same thing you always find there.  To me, it seems like their selections are rarely updated.  So here is my solution- search your google maps for a local scrapbooking store.  This is precisely what I did the other day and stumbled upon heaven- Scrap N’ Yap in Monrovia, CA.

I love to support local businesses and I am a huge fan of this particular store for many reasons:

1) It’s pretty! When you step inside, the store is colorful and has an antiquish look to it.  It is clean and organized.  And so spacious! There is room to turn around without knocking things over with your purse. That, my friends, is important! The whole feel of it relaxing and not overwhelming like some craft shops I have been  in.

2) It’s full of unfamiliar things! As I mentioned before, other chain craft stores I have shopped at always have the same thing! I have seen the same paper and embellishments sitting there for years now.  There were definitely new and unique items at Scrap N’ Yap, which made me all giddy when I was there 🙂

3) It’s ran by awesome people! Nothing is more important to me when I am shopping than customer service, and people… this place had outstanding customer service.  The lady working, Jen, was super friendly, offered assistance, and gave suggestions.  I truly felt like I was a valuable customer to her and it was only my first time in the store! I later liked Scrap N’ Yaps Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/Scrap.N.Yap) to let them know how much I enjoyed their store and 2 other Scrap N’ Yap ladies responded to my message! Incredible!

4) It’s fun for everyone! They offer a lot of classes there so you can constantly learn something new, or maybe teach others some stuff you know! I have not attended a class there yet, but they sound lovely! I have actually always been too intimidated to take any sort of paper craft class, but Jen almost has me convinced 😉

I really hope some of you who live in the area will take the time to check this place out.  It truly is a delightful place, full of delightful people.  Get a sneak peek of what Scrap N’ Yap has to offer by visiting their website: http://scrap-n-yap.com/
