Store Stop: Pebbles in My Pocket In Las Vegas

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.

Taking up a second story loft, Pebbles in My Pocket oozed variety. The store has a vast selection of scrapbooking supplies, mostly organized by theme, although there was a small section organized by color. Embellishments that I would have put together, such as 3D flowers and monograms, were scattered throughout the store, almost as add-on purchases. It looks like the store's buyers purchase entire lines, so mixing and matching is easily done. There were sections for new items (incredibly up to date), seasons (Valentine's Day was well represented), Vegas tourism and clearance (50 percent off.)

A peek at the calendar showed an extensive list of upcoming classes for all skill levels. Most of the projects were incredibly attractive and looked to be worth the cost. The crop area was large, well-organized and made me want to sit down and get to work.

Pebbles is an easy drive from the north end of the strip and, although on the second story, is easily accessible via stairs or elevator.

The only bummer was that the customer service seemed to be lacking. I was never greeted by any of the three employees, nor asked through my visit if I needed help, even though I was the only customer for a period of time.

Hi Everybody,

i've been looking to figure out a good place to begin the Acai Berry free trial & was wanting to know if anybody had any thoughts on whether or not it works to lose weight? So far this is the only [url=]article[/url] I've been able to read that seemed realistic for what my goals are. Thoughts?
