The Michael's Secret

Hi All,

So I was in Michael's today and found out a little piece of information I thought I would share.  I was digging through the Clarance rack as always, I came across a Sizzix embossing folder set (4 piece).  there was no price on it.  I asked for a price check and the ladies was disturbed and said I couldn't buy it because is was down to .01 cent and they were not allowed to sell anything for 1 cent.  After a conversation they did sell it to me because I had already had it in my possession. 

She did explain to me when they go down that low they are supposed to be removed from the floor.  I asked her what they would do with them and she said.  Grab bags.  I had just seen a big bin with a lot of grab bags, I thought they were $2.  I did not buy one.  But she said those bags are things that have gone down to 1cent.  So keep that in mind, when you see the grab bags you might get lucky and get something really nice I believe the normal price on the Sizzix embossing set was 14.95.  Yipee!

P.S.  I just received my wire cubes of which I will attempt to build paper holder so I can keep my paper sorted.  I saw this on You-Tube.  I'll let you know and post pics when I am done.  I plant to work on this the first week of September.  Have a great weekend!

Craftingly Yours,
