Top 1 - Week of Dec 7th + Blog Feature + Reminders

Hey Reusers!

Instead of a Top 3 post (like usual) we wanted to highlight an amazing donation we received last week.

Whole banker's boxed full of wooden spools, styrofoam balls, felt, ribbon, buttons, beads, stickers, and so, so, so, so, so much more. We were so excited to open these boxes full of such awesome things (it was like opening presents before Christmas - all the excitement and none of the waiting)! Thanks for the donation!

We also got an awesome message today that we were featured on a blog. Read all the nice things that Jumbish has to say about our little shop: READ THE BLOG POST

Also just some reminders about our modified hours this week and the continuation of our holiday promotions. Only 6 themed bags left!

Happy Reusing, folks!

Top 3 - Week of Nov 30th + Holiday Hours + Holiday Giveaways

Hey Reusers!

Three very important things to post about today:

1. Top 3 Post

This week we had glittery, sparkly ribbon and tape, mat boards and cutters, in addition to, a huge assortment of supplies from the Regina Artist Trading Card Collective donated to the Shop. The ATC Collective holds an annual "Good Stuff Swap" and these were the leftovers. Thanks, ATC Collective!

2. Holiday Hours

Please check these modified hours before you stop by the ASE shop in December!

3. Holiday Giveaways

We're trying out a couple of promotions for the month of December. There are two ways to get some free stuff for you (or someone you know) during the holiday season:

Here are the themed bags that I set-up, if you are curious:

That's all for now! Have an awesome December!

Happy Reusing,
