Scrap Exchange Birthday Run
The Scrap Exchange Facebook constantly reminds me how I’m not the best customer with their constant updates. I look at these updates and say out loud, “I need to go.” Unfortunately when your favorite store is more than eighty miles away, it’s not the easiest trip to make. Instead of sticking around the office on my birthday, I decided to make the trip, just for that one store. The new location is a lot more spacious but I’m not sure if I’m completely sold on it. I feel like I found more stuff at the old location, mainly the “sticky items.” Mostly I look for stickers and clear industrial tape that was discarded for some reason. The circles of clear tape just isn’t there anymore and that makes me kind of sad. I can’t imagine finding the stuff anywhere else and that’s why I love going to that story…you’re not going to find this shit anywhere else. I wondered around for an hour or so, looking through the tapes and the bits of paper, rubber stamps and general bullshit. I don’t care for the fabric or the glass leftovers so I can skip those sections. It’s all about the paper for me. It’s all about the blue bins for me. As usual, I put all of my things on the counter without knowing how much it was going to be. Sometimes it feels like you’re ripping them off and other times you get charged for every little thing. This time I was charged for everything! I mostly bought stickers that were leftover from Whole Foods. Out of context these things are going to be amazing. The total was fifty-five dollars.
