Art Supplies
 
Just wondering where everyone gets their supplies. I'm in a small town, so my choices are limited. We have a Hobby Lobby, and I will get single items there in a pinch, but I mostly order from Blick and Jerry's Arterama online. Am I missing out on any good deals somewhere else? :cool:

I have gotten a lot from Hobby Lobby and Michaels (we are 50 miles from the nearest town). SO I order offline a lot too. Blicks is about my favorite.. but I Google for good prices.

D:cool:

I am an hour away from any town that has any art supplies at all so I also mainly order from Blicks..I think they have the best deals and the widest variety. I have had family get me stuff from Hobby Lobby but I wasn't impressed. I don't think they have near as good of quality items as you can get from a true art supplier like Blicks. Hobby Lobby has stuff for the hobbyist or beginner artist...that's my opinion anyway. Blicks has professional art supplies.

Hobby Lobby is my favorite supplier, they have a wide range of materials from cheap to expensive but are limited in variety. I have also used Blick for orders, they haven't let me down yet. :)

I go to Hobby Lobby once a week at least. Love that place...well it's the only place around here that I can get art supplies except for online.

Susan I hope you know that you can print out a coupon for 40% any item and you can use one a day. I never go into the store without my coupon. Just go to their web site the coupon is on the weekly offer page.

Thanks for the info but I have the Hobby Lobby app so I can access the coupon right on my phone!

Well COOL! I didn't know there was such a thing. Time for me to down load the app. Thanks Susan.

I wish Hobby Lobby would 40% off more of their art supplies. I swear sometimes when I go in there, everything I pass is marked down....until I get to what I want. The app does come in handy though!!

I'm so loving the brightness of the Cadmium Orange I bought that I've decided to buy more Cadmium base colors, but they are $26 a tube, so I'm going to buy them one at a time using the coupon. Each time I go to Conway I'll pick one up.

Careful with that Cadmium.. especially when the grandkids are around!
