What is your favorite craft store? Do you ever buy craft supplies online?

JoAnn's...but I'm partial-I used to work in one.

Next would be Michaels.

Yes-I purchase some stuff online -but prefer to actually go into a store if I can.

 My local bead shop, buy local!

Michael's or Hobby Lobby if the bead shop doesn't have what I'm looking for. I went to Joann's for the first time the other day, wasn't impressed, they didn't have a very good jewelry making selection, only one aisle.

I do shop online, Firemountain and Lima Beads are my favorites, I can buy in bulk with them.

I prefer A.C. Moore. I do order supplies online because I often can't find what I'm looking for at any of the craft stores. I do also shop at Michaels and Joann's on occasion.

I'm usually at Hobby Lobby or Michaels (because that's was closest) and Preston Art Supply (which is really super high but I enjoy drooling over all the specialty items I can't afford)... I do order from Cheap Joes a lot (I can usually get the items I drooled over at Preston's a lot cheaper there).

Do you live in the Northeast? I shopped A.C.Moore back in PA but now I'm in NC and I don't think they're down this way (was just curious :)

I lived in the Lehigh Valley-shopped at the one in Whitehall (worked at the JoAnn in Whitehall)-I do miss they're acrylic paint sales when you could get 4 for $1 or $2
