"Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work."
The daunting task of taking over an existing scrapbooking business and making it her own did not scare Laurie Hess away from an incredible opportunity. After all, Laurie had already accomplished much in her life. She completed a BA in Fine Arts, worked for five years in the graphics industry and then left it for a job that was more challenging (and more rewarding) than any she had thus far encountered - that of stay-at-home mom to her four children. While she was home with her kids, Laurie developed a love of scrapbooking, so when the occasion arose to become the owner of her own store, she jumped at it.
In order to give the store her own touch, Laurie restocked the shelves and renamed the business. Pages In Time was opened in April 2006, with an emphasis on customer service. Laurie will do anything for her customers - from special orders to putting together an entire scrapbook. Whatever her customers need is her priority. "I love the relationships I've developed with my existing customers and enjoy seeing new faces walk through the door", says Laurie.
Located in a renovated one-room schoolhouse in Lititz, PA, Pages In Time has a unique and charming atmosphere. It has a large crop room that can seat up to twelve croppers. There are monthly "Midnight Scrap" workshops and Scrap Addix classes for those who just can't get enough of scrapping!
As a testament to the popularity of Pages In Time, Laurie maintains an email subscriber list of over 1800 customers. She appreciates the ease of Email Contact's email newsletter templates and sends three or four email blasts each month, including a monthly newsletter.
