THE stamping store in our area is 1.5 blocks from my office. Full line of stickles, different colors of flock, COPICS (!), Sakura pens, and on and on and on. Prices are better than Michael's for things they both carry (ie StazOn), and the same as the other store across town that carries the rest, but waaaaay more convenient.
Good thing I'm bringing in more money with this new position - sounds like I'll need it :P
