Beautiful Impressions ~ Rubber Stamp Store ~ Westbrook CT

Beautiful Impressions ~ Awesome Store!!

This store is a fun place to visit! Meandering around the small towns in Conn. we were trying to find a Cricut location ~ which we did ~ but naturally it was closed on the one day we had the chance to explore. So, as we were pulling away from the curb .. a couple doors down .. we hit the jackpot! No Cricut, but rubber stamping heaven!!

Link to actual storefront:

This store not only has all the different goodies I see people chatting about online, but there are actual samples of so many different cards and ideas there it just boggles my simple mind! I wish I'd asked for permission to take pictures .. but didn't .. however I'm sure there are some on their website .. and I'd just love to try them all.

We got lucky ~ we met Terri W., the owner. We had a ball chatting with her, and if I'd been able to spend more time there we probably would have known many people in common .. small towns .. but the best part of all .. Terri knows all the ins and outs of stamping! What a wealth of information and so refreshing to have the luckiness (is that a word) of meeting the owner AND she's knowledgeable on all her products!

Tons of activities here ~ and I'm pretty sure there are online classes .. I sure hope so cause I don't get back there often and would love to do the classes! If you can't get there .. visit online .. can't wait to get back there to see all the goodies again!

As a side note, anybody that knows me .. well, ice cream is kind of an addiction .. and there is an ice cream shoppe co-located here! I didn't get to try it .. but sure will next time!

Thanks Terri ~ if I didn't have to figure a way to get 'stuff' back to Illinois I would have collected quite a few new toys!

    I do so wish I lived out in Connecticut, the stamp store looks awesome. I was out there for about 3 months, one year, tooo many years ago, I was a Nanny in Darien CT. And got to swim in Long Island Sound... I even got to go into New York City one time on the subway... for a girl from the Midwest, what a place that is. :o)
    Hugs and God Bless
