Donna's Two Cents, err, Stamps June 2019 Hello Summer! (we think) Welcome to Buffalo Stamps and Stuff's web page. We have a lot going on as Spring (hopefully) turns into summer and we are able to enjoy some pleasant weather for a change. Here at BSS we continue to get new product in from all your favorite companies and new ones. This spring we have expanded our paper line to include papers from Poland to go along with Germany and Sweden. We've discovered new die companies from England and as far away as Russia . We continue to try and offer you a great selection of classes for all levels of ability from just starting out to honing your advanced coloring skills. This summer we will be having local guest artist and international instructor, Debby Shuh, for two spectacular album classes featuring her unique shabby chic style. We have a Stamp Camp in the works and look forward to Stephanie Klauck from My Favorite Things continuing her monthly release classes.
If you are new to our store or to this website we invite you to explore our Gallery of current and past classes, check out what is currently running and come on in and visit for yourselves. It always amazes me when someone comes into the store and says that they never knew we were here! As a scrapbooker, the tactile nature of this hobby made it important to me to actually see the paper and supplies I would use close up. I always scoured the internet to search out local sources for my supplies. Unfortunately, we have seen a marked decrease in the number of stamp and scrapbook brick and mortar stores not only in western New York but nationwide. I love the access to materials due to the internet but I HATE that we are losing so many wonderful stores and access to so many talented artists. It's really important to support your local stores. I've said it before and I will continue to say it, we have the GREATEST, MOST LOYAL, AMAZING customers! They inspire all of us here at BSS to do and bring the very best this industry has to offer to you. To that end I'd like to share a video made at Creativation this past January that features many of our industry favorites and a local face you may know ;-) talking about the stamping industry. I hope it gives you a feeling of why we do what we do. Please enjoy and have a great summer! Creativation Video
ATC’s for 2019* Did you know that we have an active ATC group here at BSS? Make 6 ATCs featuring that month’s theme. Keep one and bring the rest to the store by the end of the month in a marked plastic sandwich bag. We will divide all the ATC’s received and you can pick up your bag shortly after the first of the next month. The 2018 ATC list is at the end of the Class Description page.
*We will be posting a new list for 2019 shortly after the first of the year.
