With all the Holiday sales ads on television and the radio focusing on chain stores, we tend to forget about the small locally owned craft stores and what sales or specials they have to offer. Unless you are a frequent customer or on their mailing list, the only other way to learn about these sales are by word of mouth. The Scrap Room and The Sassy Scrapper are Scrapbooking and craft specialty stores in Lebanon and Murfreesboro that are going above and beyond your typical Black Friday deals.
The Scrap Room, located at 1029 W. Main Street in Lebanon, is having a "Customer Appreciation Week" in lue of Black Friday. Beginning Monday 11/23 through Saturday 11/28 (closed Thanksgiving) there will be a huge store wide 30% off all products sale except for the clearance wall. If you spend $50 you will get to choose a piece of cake from the "Holiday Week Special Cake" which is a paper craft cake filled with treats. They are also hosting a free crop on Saturday from 10 am to 5 pm, including lunch and goody bags for all in attendance. There are limited spaces still available for the crop so you must call and make a reservation at 615-547-9590 to ensure a spot.
The Sassy Scraper, located at 3325 Memorial Blvd in Murfreesboro, is having a huge store wide 35% off sale on Friday and Saturday from 8am - 9am.
