After following another thread here, I was 'forced' to stop at Tuesday Morning last night on my way home & see what they had. I found a Crate Paper DIY paper pad, 3 thicker alphas, 3 WRMK alphas(which are just like thickers), 2 - 25 packs of WRMK divided protectors, 2 packs of SC lil flower veneers, 2 packs of SC flair, a pack of Heidi Swap sequin arrows and a 4 pack of AC glitter to use with my DIY thickers. Needless to say, I am planning on hitting another TM closer to my office over lunch today. I just can't pass up bargain scrappy supplies, even though I need more supplies like I need a hole in the foot.
Spoiler...their flyer was laying on the counter when I got home last night and says they will be getting Bazzill supplies in on Sun, Aug. 3.
My TM had 6 by 12 page protectors, some Jillibean soup paper (a few sheets per pack in the clearance section not in the scrapbook area), a WRMK album or two, WRMK Hall Pass and Country Livin 48 paper sheet sets, some Studio Calico paper pads, some Crate Paper paper pads, and some 8 by 8 page protectors.
That sounds like what my nearest TM had as well. I've been stopping in weekly and have yet to walk out empty handed. I'm currently stocking up on supplies for the coming school year - 25 sheets of kid friendly paper for $1.99 is a HUGE deal for me.

I will be close to a Tuesday Morning next weekend - heading to Cincinnati for the Stampaway Convention. I'm going down early to hit TM and IKEA that is also close by. I wonder if I'll have any $$ left for the convention! lol

It's a Journey. No one is ahead of you or behind you. You are not more advanced or less enlightened. You are exactly where you need to be. It's not a contest, It's Life.
I had never been to a Tuesday Morning as I do not go into our big city much (28 miles away), but had wanted to try it based on everything I have heard about them on these forums. I stopped there last night on the way to dinner with some visiting family. Can't say I was very excited by their scraping supply selection. I did pick up some 6 x 6 paper pads but that was it. I may check again just to see if this was just a one time thing or if there selection will pretty much always be this dismal.
Mine has had a great selection lately, too. Yesterday I picked up a 12 x 12 sheet of Dear Lizzy 5th & Frolic paper garland and some Studio Calico flair. I left some SC wood veneer cameras behind thinking I already had them, but I don't. :-[
Thanks to his thread I stopped today. It's very close but usually I can resist, Our store has cleaned up the hobby section. I'm not a knitter but they had wonderful yarns. Scrappy goods were also organized, and lots of new things. I bought a couple of Cosmo Cricket packs and some WRMK embellishments. I resisted the 7gypsies tray but might go back. They had quite few page protector packs and other brands I didn't need. It's definitely expanded and improved, they had some WRMK 4th of July type goods too.
I love TM!! I always find good stuff, if I poke around. Sometimes one little pack of SC flair or SC wood veneers or something is hidden at the back of a hanger thing just waiting for me! Lol. I'm not the type who has to have the latest stuff, so places like TM are great for bargain scrappy shoppers like me. Some days are better than others though, for sure, just like any other discount store so one visit isn't necessarily indicative of their general stock.
I stopped at my TM earlier this week & picked up a lot of Crate Paper chipboard. They had the 12x12 sheets of adhesive backed chipboard for "On Trend", "Peppermint", "Story Teller", & "Acorn Avenue" collections. At $1.99 each, I grabbed one of each.

I have been to several TM in the last 2 weeks. I am decorating my house and have found some really nice things. I do look in the craft sections but I just look. I need to use what I have. I did notice they had those WRMK punch sets and those HUGE punches. I don't remember what the prices were.
I've found that you get there within a couple of days of their delivery you can find some pretty cool stuff. It is for sure a hit and miss and some TM have much more than others. Mine didn't have much of a "craft" section however they have revamped and increased their space with the anticipation of expanding the scrap supplies.
I love the Lucky 8 punches. They are $9.99 each. They made 12 of them and I only have one left to find. I hang them on Command hooks on the inside of my craft closet. They are bulky, but for that price, it is worth it.
They will be putting out some new items for a big event today. I plan to check it out this afternoon.
On a related note, I bought a kit/pack of WRMK Anthologie paper (about $10?) a while back. It is the best paper I've ever used with the Silhouette. Even when using scissors, it cuts like butter. They had several styles, and I might look for another pack just to use for Silhouette shapes. Too bad AC bought out WRMK. The paper quality probably won't be as good in the future.
I just stopped at TM. They had tons of Bazzill cardstock and patterned paper in packs of 25 for $3.99. Lots of Crate Paper and WRMK kits with 48 sheets, stickers, etc for $8.99. Also lots of LYB Halloween papers in packs of 25 for $1,99. I don't need that much Halloween paper, so I didn't get any. Also had prima flowers in the milk bottles. I bought one of those about 10 yrs ago and still haven't used it up, so I passed. I did stock up on 6" paper pads since I'm enjoying making small albums lately.

The only issue I have with the paper packs of 25 is it is 25 sheets of the SAME paper pattern. They do have some that are pads or page kits though for pretty cheap. I am checking out a 4th store tomorrow while running errands for my husband.
