On his way home on Sunday night my boyfriend, Mike, discovered a mom and pop art supply store going out of business. Though the shelves were mostly bare, there was a selection of over 200 art markers. He said the prices on them ranged from $2 up to $5 each. Mike is an expert haggler and apparently he offered $20 for the whole lot, and the owner accepted. When he came over to the house and laid out his bounty, I drooled. Since he had doubles of some of the colors, he ended up giving me 63 of them. There's almost nothing more exciting than new arts & craft supplies.
I still need to find the perfect container for them, since I am currently obsessed with storage solutions.
The colors are exactly what I would've chosen if I'd been able to pick.
