marksmomagain, am admirably flabbergasted by your knack for a bargain!! Been wanting to ask.....do you use all your goodies for your own work? for students? friends? classmates? Sometimes get this image of you exiting a store with a tall, tottering pile of art supplies making your way back to the car!
Within 2 miles of where I work there is Hobby Lobby, AC Moore, Michaels, JoAnne and Ollie's. Five to ten miles further are two really great mom & pop hobby stores, two more Hobby Lobby's, another Ollie's, and last but not least, one fantastic dedicated art store. If I feel like an hour's leisurely drive thru mostly rural roads to the next state, there is another Hobby Lobby and Michaels.
I use most everything myself, but do sometimes pick up items with intent to give away.
One thing I don't understand, especially with the Moulin du Roy and Arches paper, is that after they clearance it all, they order more of the same... I've never paid full price for it. Same with the boards...
