Store Stop: Scrapbook Loft in Jacksonville, IL

This being a scrapbooking blog and all, I thought I would give a minor critique to stores that I visit on my travels. This is something I do on my own as a service to other scrapbookers and please feel free to agree or disagree with me in a manner that serves as constructive.

Unfortunately, the Scrapbook Loft in Jacksonville, IL, was closed on the Saturday I stopped by (Dec. 30). Housed with a local luncheon teahouse, the hours appear be Monday through Friday. Disappointing for those scrapbookers who work a regular work week, I'm sure. And, a fault with the store, too, since most croppers need hubby (or other relative) child care while they shop. Plus, working croppers tend to have more expendable income to spend at their favorite LSS! I hope that the Scrapbook Loft is open the next time I am in town ... I'd love to see it!

Also to note: Scrapbook Wonderland is no longer in business. This LSS owner used to rent a space in an antique mall, York's Antiques in Jacksonville. I have noticed that the store is still listed on web site store locators, so I thought I'd put the word out to whomever might read this and care. :)

The Scrapping Loft is now "La Scrapique" (not sure of the spelling) and is open Saturdays

I'll be in the Jacksonville area Wed. (March 19th). What scrapbook stores are open in this area? Which do you recommend?
