July 4th Newsletter

The Inspiration Station
July 3, 2014
Welcome to The Inspiration Station

Dear Debra,
Just a reminder that we are CLOSED on Friday to celebrate the fourth, BUT we are open Saturday late (until 8pm) because the town has Summerfest happening downtown at Hyde Park all day.  It is a great family day which finishes up at the High School with Fireworks.
Click here for Summer Fest info

Speaking of summer schedules - I want to let you know that we will be having summer hours during the month of August.  I know it's a ways away, but often times we have people who travel and I want to give you a "heads up".

During the month of August ONLY - we will be closed on Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday. It is typically very slow in that month and closing will allow us to have some work done on the store.  Our big project is painting the front of the store and that will take some time and require ladders and scaffolding out front so we are going to take advantage of the closed days for that. We are looking forward to the "facelift"!  Our open hours for August will be: Thurs-Fri 10am - 6pm, Saturday 10-5pm and Sunday noon-4pm.

Summertime also means "Christmas in July" which is always a big day.  This year, Donna will be hold those classes on Sunday, July 20th.  The first class (noon-2pm) will be assorted Christmas cards, the second class (3pm-5pm) will be a Card in a Box, we'll have more details soon. In both classes you will be given a 6x6 pad of paper to create more goodies at home.  I recommend you sign up early to avoid being left out.

 These classes always fill quickly, many times before the samples are even posted. Payment is required at the time of sign up.

We have many new paper lines in stock including a beautiful line of baby products from Kaisercraft. Fun new Penny Black stamps and Lawn Fawn and much more.

Oh, and did I mention - We are also working through our papers and stamps and clearing out many older designs in order to make room for the new that will be arriving!  As always, we continue to bring in new products weekly to inspire you. So Come in and visit our CLEARANCE section!
