Christy’s Main St. Memories

Today, I visited Christy’s Main Street Memories in New Concord Ohio. While I was there I couldn’t get over how cute the place was. The owner Christy Applegate was as nice as could be, and even scheduled a class on Sept 19!


My daughter and I visited her store and were there quite a while just chatting about scrapping and her store and took a look around. She has an amazing selection of products and a wide variety of paper, and she had a lot of options when it came to stamps, some that you can’t find at the big chains. She gets business from all over but has a steady clientele of regulars who want to support local businesses, and she even does special orders! She does different classes, and has demonstrations from some of the stamping companies, and tries hard to keep up with all the cool new stuff in the scrapbooking world.


While we were chatting I asked Christy how she got in the business, and she told me a little bit about how she got started. She said she had been an avid scrapper for years when her husband one day decided she should open a shop. He found a place, they looked at it and within a day she was on her way to turning her hobby into a profession. She said it happened fast and the suddenness of it made her nervous, but it all worked out in the end, since she has since opened a bigger store and is about to have her five year anniversary.

If you are ever in New Concord, Ohio you should definitely make the time to visit. It’s a cute little place with just the right amount of scrapping stuff for all your needs. I’ll be there on September 19 for some Cricut Basics and Design Studio classes, so if you’re interested, you should contact Christy for more information.

    I purchased a window die cut at your store and am trying to remember what the company was. It was in a green envelope type packaging.

    Thanks for your help
