Yesterday I went to the Stempelmekka stampshow in Hagen (Germany), it was great ! Very busy of course, so, instead of nicely walking around in 'circles' (the hall is hexagonal), I straight went to the most interesting stands, where it was (still) calm and I didn't have to queue.
Anyway, you have to get there early, in order to find a parking space. Before opening, I changed ATC's with some German ladies, see photo. And of course I bought lots of stamps, from Michael Strong, from Stamp Camp (lovely background stamps), also from Raja Stamps and the Stempelwinkel. At Judikins and Hein Design I also bought some stamps and some bottles of Mica Gloss. And the 'books' from Creavil (Berlin) : those books are so beautiful and big, you can't call them magazines. Hardly any "cute" stamps this time, seems my taste is changing.... :)) But no worry, I still have enough "cute" stamps left !! :)))
Next year, I'll be going again, even though it means getting up very early !! Then it's Stempelmekka No. 20 !
