I do snatch up some supplies at Micheal's if they go on sale, but would not pay full price for it. It's just not stuff that I 'Have to Own' - you know, that stuff you see and you immediately start to think of all the things you could do with it.
All of my cardstock for cardmaking comes from papertreyink Love their quality!

Digital has made a big impact on the market. I noticed at the rubber stamp "Heirloom" show, very few ladies were younger than me. Stampin' Up has great paper at a reasonable price. They are trying lots of things, I can only guess, to keep customers and appeal to younger ones.
If I worked hard every day making cards or scrapbooking, it would be a long, long time before I used all I have. May we never see the end of fun product!

I have always shopped Michael's and JoAnn's for years. I remember when I could fill my cart and have to decide what to back because there was so much I wanted, but not enough money. Lol. Anyway, now I go in and just wonder around wondering where is the stuff, you know the stuff, we just have to have???? I won't by MARTHA Stewart brand because she is so expensive so eliminates products right there. I have noticed many many aisles devoted to toys for children. Also many aisles of Jewelry making which many younger people like to do.

Where did all the craft shows on tv go? I miss them. Maybe that is a reason the craft stores don't seem to know what the hotest new stuff we are looking for? I want to see the craft shows again. Not talking about craft like MARTHA Stewart gluing something on a lamp shade and thinking she has taught us something brilliant!!

Grrr

I went to CHA in summer of 2010. Michaels was there. I would think they still go to CHA every year. So there is no excuse for them not knowing what is current, new or trendy.

I have come to the realization a L o n g time ago, shopping for this craft is through the internet, It is a shame the the brick and mortar stores don't carry more paper crafting and stamping products.

I do most of my shopping for craft stuff online too. Still miss browsing the aisles at stores. I try to buy made in the USA when I can.

I think the internet has caused the decline of items in the stores. The newest and latest are always online somewhere, and by the time it takes to get into the stores, those really interested in those items have already gotten them on line. We all like to see what we are buying but yet we want to get the best buy on it as well. Shopping Amazon and online often saves taxes applied to the price, and often if enough is purchased shipping is free and you have saved yourself the disappointment and time in hunting it down in the store for what you cannot find. I do fear the day is coming when there will be less retailers and store front business especially in specialty items. I really don't see how they make it with overhead and still make a profit and that is sad. People go see what it looks like in the store but then often get it elsewhere online for a better deal.
