Well, THIS post has been going for a week at 2PEAS, about all the lucky ladies finding THICKERS letter stickers at Big Lots for only $2 a pack (they are usually $4-5). I finally made it to my new Big Lots (I wrote about when it first came to town HERE) and….remember the Soup Naz! on Seinfeld?….”No Thickers for you!” Nope, my Big Lots had none.
Rats. Double triple rats.
As one who likes to take lemons and make scrapbook lemonade, I found a few other things and did not leave Big Lots empty-handed. Here is what I found:
Some AC foam shapes, an 8.5×11 cardstock pack in pretty, muted colors, All Dressed Up adhesive ribbons by DCWV, and 2 packs of tropical colored mini brads. Also, 2 black/1 purple DCWV alphas. I got a pack of the black alphas on my last trip and have since used them on 2 projects so I got me so mo’….
Here’s what comes in the American Crafts foam shapes:
Not bad for a grand total of $14, eh? That includes a binder (not shown) that I needed for work.
But I’m still bummed about the Thickers….Hey, have you been a lucky Big Lots shopper? Tell us which Thicker packs (or anything else) you got!
I got me some today! Neener-Neener :)!!! Didn’t get as many as I wanted though, this economy bites! If I had my way, I would have gotton triples of everything. My BL had about 5 different ones. I’m happy and bummed all at the same time. Oh and mine had about four different ones of the DCWV ribbon, but I managed to control myself.
thanks for enabling…hehe
I think I bought 22 packs of thickers! I know, I know, I went a little overboard but I couldn’t resist!! Mine also had the DCWV chip chatter metallics in three colors and some other chip chatter that were felt feeling! I hit the jack pot! A while back I got 4 different “jars” of the AC embellishments, two different kind of felt flowers, felt arrows and chipboard hearts. Big Lots has been really great lately!
Thanks for posting about BL. It had been some time since I was there and I came away with some good stuff. Thickers, American Crafts Elements buttons $1 and eyelets. ribbon. I am host of a month scrapbook crop at my church and so some of these things will be prizes at the upcoming crops.
I did find some thickers at my BL. I don’t remember how many packs exactly, but I really was picky with which ones I got. It was hard leaving the store without at least one of every one!
Also picked up some punches for $2…:)
