Chase and Living Social Grant

Thank you all so much for your support when we applied for the $250,00 Small Business grant.  With 70,000 businesses applying, we knew our chances were slim and unfortunately, we did not win.  The 12 winners have been announced and they can be seen here.  It was so wonderful to see all of the support we got from you, it really made us feel like we truly have the best customers!

It isn't too late to support us, the whole idea of the grant was to help small businesses grow and succeed and we can still do that without a $250,00 grant.  We are looking to expand the store and have big plans for remodeling, expanding, and bringing in more and more product.  As always, these big plans take money so your part is easy, just come shop!  You can buy the things you love and support your favorite local small business, helping us expand and bring in more of what you like.  We have lots of big plans for the future of Scraporium; we are just about to announce our very first weekend scrapbook retreat, we are bringing back Monday Make 'n Takes starting next week, we are very close to launching our store website where we will sell all of your favorite products online, and we have tons and tons of fun activities and classes planned for the fall, plus we have a great 20% off sale going on the entire month of September!  Please don't miss out on all the fun, we love our customers and love for you to come by the shop soon to see all that is going on at Scraporium.  Look for raffle baskets coming soon to help support the Scraporium Growth Fund, we want to get the ball rolling soon!

Thanks again for all of your support, we really do appreciate all you do!

-Denise, Chanele, and the Scraporium Girls
