So long, farewell ...

It's that time of year again when we find out what stamp sets and accessories from the current Ideas Book & Catalogue are retiring to make way for new goodies. While this is a sad occasion for many of us, as we have grown to love certain stamps and colours, it is a time to look forward to April to see what new things are in store for us.

So, the retirement list has been released. Click on the picture to the left, take a look at it and see if any of the stamps on your wish list are on there. If so, please contact me as soon as possible to arrange your purchase, because once these are sold out they are gone, gone, gone.

Note that some stamps and accessories are marked with asterisks - a single asterisk means that the price has been discounted by 25% from the catalogue price. Two asterisks mark items that were inadvertantly left out of the 2008-09 catalogue, and are being sold out for 50% of the original price. Three asterisks mark those stamp sets which are on the Bushfire Appeal list (ie. 50% of the retail price is being donated to the Red Cross).

Some items are already sold out - the reinkers for many of the In Colors have already been selling fast and are no longer available (sorry). A reminder to us all to buy the reinker at the same time as the inkpad! Something I learnt the hard way last year.

I have also heard that some prices are going up in the next catalogue, particular ink pads (from $9.95 to $11.95) and reinkers (from $4.95 to $5.95), so you might want to stock up on these this month as well (I will be *g*).

Contact me by email or phone to place your order, but remember that any or all of the items you select may no longer be available. I will let you know before placing the order, based on the list which is available to demonstrators (hopefully updated each weekday during March), what is no longer in stock.

And to refresh your memory, here are links to my blog posts featuring some of the retiring stamp sets ...

Bodacious Bouquet, Bud Basics, Bundle of Joy, Carte Postale, Circle of Friendship, Eat Cake, Happiness, Polka Dots & Paisley, Time Well Spent.


Editted to add: In the past hour the "unavailable" list has been updated, and I can tell you that the following items are no longer available for order:

Flip Flops wheel, Classic Ink Refills in Soft Sky, Purely Pomegranate, Wild Wasabi, Groovy Guava and River Rock, eyelets in Earth Elements, Basic and Soft Subtles, Best Friends Numbers and Mateys Map wheel.
