Scrap-a-Doodle-Doo is a boutique scrapbooking, card making and paper crafting store located in Ramsey, New Jersey and owned and operated by husband and wife team, Stephanie and Mark Mandato. We opened our business in 2005 with an online storefront and made the leap to a bricks and mortar location in May of 2008 following the prompting of our customer-base in the tri-state area.
Stephanie and her mother, Norma (a.k.a. Mama Doodle) had joined forces and were working together in the recruitment/staffing arena and needed a creative outlet. Using our business skills, coupled with Mark’s retail background in merchandising, sales and logistics has helped to propel us through this difficult economy.
We are fortunate to have a talented staff, as well as teachers and loyal customers who share their knowledge of the crafting world and enhance everyone’s experience at Scrap-a-Doodle-Doo. They help us to provide an atmosphere that inspires creativity, provides access to the latest and greatest product offerings and builds lasting friendships. The sign in our Crop Room appropriately reads: “Enter as strangers, leave as friends”.
In addition to our online presence and retail location, we feel fortunate to have been invited to serve as one of the Preferred Vendors for Scrapper’s Dream Vacations (SDV) and have doing so for the past few years up and down the Eastern Coast. Scrap-a-Doodle-Doo also hosts all-day events and weekend themed retreats. As in our recruitment business, we strive to achieve a synergy between our attendees to ensure that a good time is had by all!
We are grateful for the love and support of our family without whom this business would not be possible.
Thankfully, with all of the supplies available to scrapbookers today, you don't have to be an expert to enjoy the hobby. Like shoes and chocolate, scrapbooking and paper crafting is non-judgmental and provides instant gratification. We invite you to come explore the thousands of items from 175+ manufacturers, most of which you will not see at your "big box retailers".
