|Some mail art pals and I found out at the last minute that|
Hero Arts Rubber Stamps
was having a FLASH (don't you love that word?) sale a while ago. We didn't even know the factory was over in the East Bay (in Richmond).
Of course we had to go check it out -- and we made a day of it!
How about you guys come along?
|The factory store is open Monday and Wednesday from 10AM-3PM but a Flash Sale is extra special.|
I think if you go to the website for Hero Arts (linked above) or the FaceBook page you will get notices when the flash sales are.
|See what I mean?? Boxes and boxes of stamps (mostly cling) for $, $2 and $3 only.|
|But besides the tables set up for the flash sale, you can go into the regular little store too where there is more stuff...and a really nice woman named Debbie was helping us there.|
|We made a day out of it and after the stop at Hero Arts, my pals had to deliver their altered books to|
the Altered Book Show at the Marin Museum of Contemporary Art.
|And, lucky me, I got to have a preview of the wonderful upcoming show and auction of altered books. You can bet I am going to bid on some of them|

If you're in the Bay Area I recommend you go.
|Several pieces were made of de-constructed books -- just my type.|
|Right across the street from lunch were two thrift shops. It was almost as if they knew we were coming.......|
|When we saw the $50.00 we were not amused but then we realized that it was $50.00 for everything in the basket.....hum......surely chipping in $25 each Monica and I have plenty to share. Score!|

These are some of the cool faux postage stamps I got.......
|And there are some MORE of the stamps I got....you all know by now I cannot resist faux postage...|
|And the stamps are already in use in my altered passport project. You know my rule -- if you bring it home you better use it!|
Can you tell the real stamps from the faux?
