Shopping for scrapbook supplies can be exciting, expensive and sometimes overwhelming. Should you shop for your scrapbook supplies at a scrapbook on-line store or should you go to your local scrapbook supply store to find what you need? Here are some advantages to shopping online.
Shopping at a scrapbook on-line store allows you to view scrapbook tools, embellishments and paper in an organized setting. The products are sorted according to category. You can easily view different products and you are able to decide exactly what you need. Free shipping may be offered and you are able to shop in a quiet atmosphere without a lot of distractions, therefore giving you time to think about your purchases.
Another advantage to shopping at a scrapbook online store is selection. Most online shops are able to have a larger selection of products than some local stores are able to hold in their inventory.
Shopping at your local scrapbooking store allows you to see scale and true colour and meet other's with the same addiction. Also, it keeps your local shop in business. If you see something in a magazine or online that you like - ask if your local shop can bring it in. If you want to have a local shop - only use online shopping when they can't supply it.
