craft items

Stephanie from Miramar

This is over half a large suitcase of craft pieces for making cards etc. There are stamp pads and stamps, pads of fancy paper, blank cards, cut out shapes, beads, eyelets, pens, sticky dots and lots of other things. Knowing the prices of the originals I would think there is over $100 of goods here.… View moreThis is over half a large suitcase of craft pieces for making cards etc. There are stamp pads and stamps, pads of fancy paper, blank cards, cut out shapes, beads, eyelets, pens, sticky dots and lots of other things. Knowing the prices of the originals I would think there is over $100 of goods here. Could be good for stocking stuffers. If you want to look that is fine. Would like to sell all together but would consider single items.
