LOL they hit it right on the head. I??ve shopped there for years and never have had a pleasant experience. Since I don??t have a husband or children I??ve been known to drop several hundreds of dollars on stamps, books and supplies in a single visit to a store. Often I??ve let empty handed because I just couldn??t take it. Over the years she has easily lost thousands of dollars from me. I??m sure she doesn??t care. There were times when I??ve considered calling 911 from inside the shop and telling them I was being held hostage.

People who know about it have formed a kind of survivors group. ??Have you ever shopped at Carolina Moon?? It??s always a good ice breaker!

Bodacious Beads next door is more then worth the trip. I can only imagine they have to listen to!

Rude and miserable...why spend your money to be treated so rudely and poorly...find another store or better yet, order your items from a retailer online.

This store and its owner would get absolutely zero stars from me, I don't care what she sells and who comes in to teach her classes! It doesn't make up for her sour attitude.

Talk about a miserable human being....this owner has no business owning a business that caters to the public or teaches classes....she would be a great collection agent instead.

Run...away...fast!!!

She is rude, rude and then some. I have shopped in her store on 2 occasions and took a class that was offered with Suze Weinberg. There are other stores around that offer an array of products. This is the very reason why shop owners get away with treating their customers in an unprofessional manner - and people keep going back. What is wrong with you people? Once and then twice and that was enough for me!

This is an EXCELLENT altered arts store, the only draw back is the owner. She can be downright rude at times; yelling at children and name dropping are two of her favorite things to do.

I am a lowly rubber stamper/altered artist. I don't know who you are talking about when you drop "Jane Doe is teaching here next week." It makes the shopper feel uneducated and awkward if they don't know who she's talking about.

She also yelled at my 14 year old daughter for touching the paper. This store caters to my demographic and a lot of women my age have children; she should expect kids are going to touch things. AND she had no right to yell at my child. Not to mention that my daughter has been around art all her life and knows how to respect other people property.

THE OTHER THING is she will not shut up and let you leave; even as you are edging closer and closer to the door, she prattles on and on.

THE REASON TO GO: (and put up with the above mentioned) is she has everything and she knows everything about what she has. If it's new and fun, she will have it or it is being shipped to her. She's got an amazing array of vintagey, collage, altered art rubber stamps and super cool paper. All the new stamp pads, coloring methods, scratch board, embellishments, ribbons.

She is a great resource, just bring your earplugs!

Carolina Moon is an independently owned art/scrapbooking supply store. The owner owns and operates this business by herself so is a great resource for card making or scrapbooking ideas. She is really knowledgeable and she can offer great suggestions for whatever paper craft needs you may have. She has a great selection of stamps and papers. She also offers free workshops and classes.
