I have gone for the past two years and it has been so much fun!! My BFF that I go with has moved to Florida so I may be going solo...but it will still be worth it. I found some great LSS stores thru the shop hop. My "home store" is Joys of Life Scrapbooking. I purchase my passport from Joys of Life. The passport entitles me to 20% off the participating scrapbooking stores! So it's like everything is on sale...yeah! And the people I've met along the shop hop has always been fantastic.
Happy Shopping :)
