Sigh – okay, so Micheals was a bust. Next time I even THINK of going please remind me of that. I have to say that it is now my least favorite store. As Leah commented on the last post, even on sale Michaels baskets are still too expensive. I did find two that look really cute, but I think I am also going to try Wheatons – if I can get out there some time this week.
I also want to point out that Michaels also has false advertising. I was in the store yesterday and decided to check out their picture frames which had been advertised in the flyer as “buy one get one for a cent”. That was not true. They even had the sign posted on the shelf that I took my frames off of. But my frames were not buy one get one for a cent. Needless to say, I did not buy them. When I can get something similar at Walmart for $9 or under why would I pay $12 or $14 for a frame? (and that was a sale price)!
Nope, won’t be shopping at Micheals again. On the up side – the two larger baskets I did buy there had replica mini ones at the dollar store. So I was able to get two smaller baskets to match for $4 total. Now, that’s a deal!
