Looking to buy stamps and big shot dies
I am looking to buy used stamps or dies that work with the big shot. Where is the best place to shop?

Hmm. That depends. What country do you live in? What style of crafter are you?

I live in the US and I am looking for unmounted stamps and Big shot dies.

You might call around to some local thrift shops. You can always unmounts them if they are a bargain. Check out eBay too. Most any die should work in your Big Shot with the right sandwich. If they don't cut well, you might need to add a shim. Some independent scrapbooking or stamping stores may have swap meets or sell some used items.

Good ideas, fab. I am in Australia and don't know what is really available in the US. Hope you find what you want, Jetconsult.

That said, Stampin' Up! has a range of dies and stamps that you can choose not to mount. You could check online for a demonstrator near you?

Yes, I love the Stampin Up dies and stamps.....but they are so expensive. I was looking for some used ones. Keep on stampin.

Let us know what you do find and where you found the best buys.

Some places that I've had luck with getting dies and stamps:

Ebay - I haven't bought from there recently, but I was able to get a number of individual stamps or lots/grab boxes or dies for reasonable prices

Buy/sell area from other stamp forums - most do payment with paypal, however, some will accept money order
--> prices are generally reasonable as many are destashing as they are retired or getting out of stamping

Online stamp stores like VLVS or IBFS usually have clearance sections or specials which are a good way to get stamps as well

Tuesday Morning - if you have one nearby, usually has craft shipments every week and every so often it will be dies. You can check Tuesday Morning hauls on youtube to see if that week included dies. Since it's overstock items, not every store gets the same items or the same amount of items

Garage sales - I haven't had luck with these, but I know some people that have had great luck checking out garage sales or similar

The VLVS! Pound O' Rubber is very popular.

I do like getting the Pound O' Rubber . Plus you get a free flamingo with all your orders. Still trying to get a purple one.
