This shop is awesome! There's always
something on sale. I go in there expecting to spend a fortune and walk away with a small bag, but I always get more than I expect. One of the girls who works there spent a good amount of time trying to help me find a perfect present for my sister. They have gifty stuff too, beyond just art supplies. It's seriously hard not to spend hours in there, just going down the aisles. The staff has always been helpful, and they all sound like they want to be there, which really makes a difference. I'll take SamFlax over JoAnns or Michaels any day!
