The Stampin’ Up!(R) Retired List is up on the website! You can view it by page order in the catalog or by alphabetical list of stamp set names. Retiring wheels are also listed. A list of retiring accessories will be released on June 20. Those will be sold as long as they are available, whereas the stamp sets will be available until June 30 since Stampin’ Up! manufactures their own stamps. The Retired List is put out every year as these are the stamps that Stampin’ Up! will no longer sell in the new catalog, coming out July 1. You might like to go through your catalog and mark the ones that are retiring and make a list of the sets you cannot live without after June 30th! As far as my own personal "collection", there are some sets retiring that are old favorites, even some of my first purchases four years ago that have lasted this long….as well as some newer ones that I can’t believe they are retiring!! But this purge makes room for new sets in the much-anticipated new catalog July 1st, the Fall/Winter Collection 2007.
A new thing this year is called the "Dormant List". The Dormant List contains stamp sets that, while they have not been retired, will not be listed in the Fall/Winter Collection 2007. These sets are available for purchase from July 1 through January 1, 2008 and may or may not be listed again in future catalogs.
