Throwback Thursday - A Double Dose of Art Supplies

Welcome to another edition of Throwback Thursday!!  I've been holding out on you.  There were art supplies to share, but posting didn't happen before now.  The timing was interesting.

Read on to find out more...

I told you about the day that Quilt Diva Julie's box of art supplies arrived, right?

The timing was interesting because...

On the day Julie's box arrived (scroll to Thursday's entry), I had made a stop in Durham, NC at The Scrap Exchange.  It's a wonderful resource for teachers and artists - a bit of a recycling center for all things craft related.  I was nearby for another errand and decided to indulge my inner artist.  It's been ages since my last visit!

I can't recall what I thought I might be interested in, but I came home with the following items:

Just to give you an idea of the savings on the "big ticket" items I purchased:

PRISMACOLOR 24-pencil set retails for $21.88
FISKARS Hexie Punch sells for $19.99
FISKARS Circle Punch retails for $14.00
Metal Desk Organizer - exact model no longer available $23.97

My price:

PRISMACOLOR 24-pencil set - NEVER USED - $4.00
FISKARS Hexie Punch - $3.00
FISKARS Circle Punch - $2.00
Metal Desk Organizer -exact model no longer available - $6.00

Obviously, I made out like a bandit.

Until next time...
I'll be playing with paint and paper!!!
