Ok Mom & Dad, you wanted to see what I've done with my college degree....(rubber stamps hit the road in Hawaii)

These photos are for my they can kvel!
Just couldn't resist...Ben Franklin, Pa'a St. (in Mapunapuna area of Honolulu), rearranged everything and created an awesome display of our (Rubber Stamp Plantation) stamps, Aloha from Hawaii stickers, Auntie's Hawaiian Stickers, and a slightly sparse display of Tropical Etch glass etching stencils.
So when your friends come to Hawaii...looking for rubber stamps...this is probably on the top of the list of places to send them.

Margie from Stitch & Stamp at Mission Houses Museum Craft Fair

You can find Margie at most of the Craft Fairs on Maui these days, and often she makes it to some of the best shows here on Oahu. Her latest passion is Glass Etching! She has something for every budget, and for every occasion...She also is great at custom orders, including all those party favors you're not sure how to etch yourself. Margie can cusomize your favorite glass platters, champagne flutes, and jelly jars that you want to fill with your Auntie's famous mango chutney recipe. Glass etching is a great way to reuse pieces that need just a little "bling" to make them sing. Oh, and of course Margie uses Tropical Etch Glass Etching Stencils! You go girl!
