New Products!

Is it Spring yet??? We're getting closer, I think! Although I heard that nasty S-word in the weather forecast this morning!

Just wanted to take a quick moment to blog about some new things added here at the store!

For you Copic marker enthusiasts, we have a few new colors you might want to add to your collection! They are...
E35 - Chamois
E50 - Egg Shell
E51 - Milky White
E53 - Raw Silk
R35 - Coral (a beautiful shade!)
R85 - Rose Red (also gorgeous!)
RV21 - Light Pink

Also, the stamp sets from Our Daily Bread Designs are here! These stamps are just beautiful, and I know you'll have a hard time choosing which ones you want! (I know I did!)

We also have the new stamps in stock from Our Craft Lounge! I'll be including those stamps in the demonstration on Tuesday, April 7th and even have a set to give away as a door prize!

****************************************

Did you happen to see Toyrifix featured on Cleveland's Fox 8 news on Monday? Our store is featured in their Hot List as being one of the best stores for children's gifts in the area, and we're currently #1. However, we need to also be featured in their Arts & Crafts section since WE all know how fabulous the toys for stampers are here, too! If you have time, please go to the Fox 8 website (click on this link... http://fox8.cityvoter.com/contests/best-of-the-akron-canton-hot-list/4651/shopping/arts-and-crafts) and nominate Toyrifix in that category, too! I'd sure appreciate it!

****************************************

One other note... we're working on our customer service skills here at the store with some of our employees. I'm finding quite often that stamping customers are being neglected when they're in that back corner of the store. If you've been in recently... maybe an evening or weekend when I'm not here, could you please take the time to let me know how your visit went? Did someone ask if you needed help in finding anything? If you needed help, did you find someone readily available? I'd appreciate your input!

Happy stamping!

What's New?

It's going to be a beautiful weekend, even with a little rain! Take a drive to Toyrifix this weekend and check out all the new merchandise in the stamp department! We've got new papers from My Mind's Eye, just perfect for all your Spring cards and projects! And MANY new stamps from Stamping Bella! If you were here last week, there are now even more to chose from! We also have new stamps for Spring and Easter from The Cat's Pajamas.

If you can't stop in this weekend, then I hope to see you on Tuesday between 2:00 and 4:00 p.m. for the Stamping Bella demo! I'll also have new stamps in stock from Our Craft Lounge that you will love!

Have a wonderful weekend!
