    Stroller & Wheeled Bag Policy
    We appreciate all of our scrapbooking moms, however only small umbrella strollers are allowed on the show floor (infants unable to sit-up or handicapped will be allowed in other small single seat strollers). Jogging strollers and other strollers with a large wheel/base will not be permitted, no exceptions. This is to keep our aisles clear and safe for all guests to walk the floor. If you have a Bag or Stroller that does not meet the requirements you will be asked to stop by our Baggage claim and check your item.
    We know our scrappers love to shop and crop and having a wheeled bag/rolling cart is not only practical, but ideal. Unfortunately, these items are not permitted on the show floor. They are however permitted in the crop area and classrooms.
    Baggage Check

    We’re excited to introduce the “Crazy Shoebox Crew” as our proud sponsors for the 2018 Schaumburg Stamp & Scrapbook Expo!

    For your convenience we have a complimentary Baggage Claim for any items that you would like held. Simply trade your items for a claim ticket. Be sure to keep your claim ticket as you will need this in order to retrieve your items. It is recommended that you have your name on the bag or inside your bag for additional identification purposes.
