Susan Mulno Something else to consider, when I shopped for my PanPastels, they cost more at Amazon and were cheaper at Blick. You can't assume big name means big price. I checked them at Jerry's Artist Outlet and they were more expensive than Blick. I always shop all my possibilities first, sometimes the results are surprising.

leighann @Susan Mulno ...I will definitely check them out. I am continually buying pens and paper, so I'm always looking for a good deal.

Susan Mulno I have not had experience with them mind you, but there is another online art supply store called, "Cheap Joe's". I have no idea if they are actually cheap but it won't hurt to look.

leighann @ChiKevin sometimes I do a price comparison between Jerry's Arterama and Blick.com

Jerry's is usually cheaper, but there are some products I can get at Blick that I can't get at Jerrys.

ChiKevin I do believe their site uses the same name as the store. I would welcome anybody to share a place with better prices and selection. Brushes are my favorite buy there. Their prices are about a third of what I have paid at every other small store or chain. Worth looking into I'd say. Funny thing minimum orders as it applies to shipping charges, one because they are so cheap you save a lot and don't need to spend a lot to get what you want and 2, you can easily buy hundreds of dollars of supplies when the prices are so good it's easy to hit the numbers you may need and stock up.

I never came across any supplies yet that they didn't carry or get for me when necessary and still charge less then any other art store I used over the years. Good luck on your search. I know what it is like to see your favorite products disappear off the shelves.
Is Jerry's artist outlet the same as 'Jerry's Artarama' ? I've used them before and yes that is definitely where I'd get the M.Graham products if I were to order it online. I think their free shipping starts at $150 though.

No M.Graham is not going out of business, HL just isn't going to carry their brand any more.
