I lift from craft stores all the time (where most of my lifting happens actually) but it’s only supplies I need. I’ve thought about cricuts and instax but at every single one of the craft stores in my area they only have display boxes out. I don’t understand how you guys get so lucky with a $400 Cricut machine just sitting on a shelf.

Bruh WALFART has cricut machines. That's where I got mine from. It was my first real walkout. But you could do a sticker swap. As a matter of fact what I had done was went and bought a 4.99 roll of vinyl from 1 walfart and then went home cut out the UPC from the vinyl used my printer to make it bigger using avery self sticking name tags and went across town to the 2nd Walfart to get the machine but I noticed no one manning the doors and decided to go balls to the wall and walk that monkey out... Good luck brotha

the local chain craft store near me:

  • employees are all middleaged women talking
  • one camera at stationery aisle

that's it. everything is free.

Same with me at the craft store I always go too but the cricuts are display only boxes. Everything else is totally up for grabs though

Shit, the Cricut Maker has been the hit for me lately.... MSRP $394, people eat them up for 300-350 all day long! Screw the craft stores for the big stuff buddy, stick to supplies and stupid shit there. I get my Cricuts from Wally's... S3 key for the spider wrap and walkout.. easy peasy. ...in fact I'm starting to run out of Wally's to get them from lol.. been to all 5 stores within 60mile radius. Last one I went to had two makers on the shelf so we snagged both of them knowing we were running out of stores to lift them from.. =/ sad day because they were an easy lift and sold hella quick for good money.. now gotta hunt out a similar comeup

Don't wanna incriminate myself, but in total at least a couple racks. It's getting harder tho and they're getting crazier with their LP and watching these.. what do u boost?

I don’t boost. I would have considered it if I found a cricut somewhere but mostly I just take stuff that I want (ie that instax) I would love some copics too but they’re also locked up

I fuched up a lift at L0wes because I couldn’t get the green pataco alarm tags off, still researching that..

Anyways, I was so mad I went to m1chels and grabbed a 206 dollar cricket machine. They were stored in line near the register, so I wheeled up a cart, loaded one in, then wheeled it out entrance when no one was looking.

I can’t sell it to save my life! I thought they were popular damn it!

I’ve learned with instax that employees don’t always just hang up the empty display boxes. So I always wander over to the instax section and pretend to grab a box to inspect it like I’m going to buy it, but at the same time, I lightly hit the other boxes to see if they’re all empty. More times than not, there’s one or two that still has the camera in it. Also, check the clearance of joanns especially. At one point they had Polaroid zips and snaps on clearance just thrown into their clusterfuck of a clearance section. A few weeks later they had instaxes- like 25 just out.

I’ll try that thanks! The only place I know of that has instax just lying around is Dillard’s oddly enough but I’m not sure if that would be a bad idea or not cause they have good security.
