“The most awesome garage sale you’ve ever been to!”

That’s how Susie Bauer, co-owner of Rock Scissor Paper, describes her huge upcoming factory warehouse sale that will take place Sunday, October 25, in San Fernando (Update 10/26: The sale is past, but there is plenty of inventory online with 25% off through October 31 for MDF readers).


Sisters/owners (l-r) Susie and Heidi Bauer

Susie started her on-line greeting card, stationary and gift company along with her younger sister Heidi over 15 years ago.

Although they predominately sell their products from the website,, Sunday’s warehouse sale will offer customers a chance to browse, in person, through over 1,200 square feet of merchandise.

She says everything will be marked down by 50 to 90 percent and range from greeting cards to craft supplies. All paper products are printed on recycled paper and manufactured in the San Fernando Valley.

They will also offer Christmas fare like gift tags, handmade stockings and a small selection of wrapping paper.

“We’re pack rats,” she says. “And we need to clean house in order to reorganize our warehouse.”

Some of the best deals will include notepads, two for 25 cents, greeting cards, four for a $1, and even a section where customers can fill up a bag with craft supplies for cheap.


“We have a huge stash of things from our archives like book binding supplies, craft paper, colored paper stock and envelopes.  Things that are great for teachers,” she says.

Even though the majority of products are backlog from past years and not from the website, they will have the usual Rock Scissor Paper vibrant designs.


“Our tagline for our company is we are purveyors of happy,” Susie says. “We create things that are colorful and have a vintage flair.”

The inspiration for the designs stems from the sisters’ childhood.

“We are native valley girls, grew up in Sherman Oaks,” Susie says.  “When we go to other parts of the country to sell our products, people know what we design is from California, specifically Los Angeles, even before they meet us.”

Because this a one-time sale, only cash will be accepted and all sales are final, but Susie suggests it’s a worthwhile way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

The warehouse

The warehouse is 1200 square feet.

“We are right next door to the San Fernando Swap Meet, the longest running one in Southern California,” she says. “After that you could come to the Rock Scissor Paper sale, and then we’ll direct you to some really awesome tamales that are in the neighborhood.”
