It’s a Big BLOOMIN’ Sale (With a Twist!)

We call it Flower Frenzy and you can take 25% OFF any product in the store which features at least ONE FLOWER! So what does that cover? Flower stamp sets like Altenew, Penny Black and Pinkfresh? (Of course!) What about a cute Lawn Fawn set that has ten mice and one flower? (Still counts!) Patterned paper with flowers? (Uh-huh!) Flower dies and stencils? (Certainly!) Paper flowers? (Obviously!) Aha, but what about Inks, paints and embossing powders though, it can’t cover those, right? Yes, it can…If they have a flower name like Tattered Rose Distress or Rosey Posey Archival (Hint: MANY of the Wendy Vecchi inks have flower names and lots come in both Dye and Archival formulas!) What about leafy stamps and dies? Ok no, those would not count, ’cause it’s a Flower Frenzy, not a Foliage Frenzy. Basically, if it LOOKS flowery or it SOUNDS flowery, it’s 25% off! There are waaaaaaaay too many items to mention as examples, so you should probably just stop by and see how many you can find!

The fine print: Sale starts Thursday evening at 5pm (4/20) and runs through Saturday evening (4/22) at 5pm and applies to in-stock, in-store purchases only; clearance items are excluded. No loyalty card punches will be given on sale-priced items. Paper Anthology cannot provide allergy medication for flower-related allergies, but we do have tissues. Hope to see you at the sale!
