A bigger Bagel Fragel

Andrew Melcher didn't gain any square footage when he relocated Scrapbook Haven from Westgate to the old Panorama Video store in Boulevard Plaza in June. But the new space is wider, which gives him more options in display and customer service, and "it gave me a little more flexibility in putting in my crop tables." Those are special six-foot-long tables for cutting and cropping paper, photos, and anything else you'd want to put in a scrapbook, and they're great for scrapbookers who don't have the space or equipment to work on their projects at home. Use of the tables is free unless there's a previously scheduled paid event, like Scrapbook Haven's Friday night Premium Crops. Essentially an evening of scrapbooking and socializing, Premium Crops runs from 4 p.m. to midnight and includes a pizza dinner, M&Ms, and soft drinks, plus use of the crop tables, die-cut machines (used to cut paper into shapes likes stars, hands, and trees), and other scrapbooking tools. It's $12 for the night and includes a 15 percent discount on anything in the store, from albums and papers to tools and templates.

Melcher says he moved the store for several reasons, but "it was mainly trying to get a lower rent." Scrapbookers should be happy he succeeded, because ever since the Scrap Yard on Zeeb closed in 2006, it's the only scrapbook store in town.

Scrapbook Haven, 2114 W. Stadium (Boulevard Plaza). 302-7810. Mon.-Thurs. 10 a.m.-8 p.m., Fri. 10 a.m.-midnight, Sat. 10 a.m.-6 p.m., Sun. 1 p.m.-5 p.m. www.scrapbookhaven.biz
