Just inside the door I got stalled looking at the moleskin sketchbooks in all sizes and varieties. My friends wondered if I would even have time to look at anything else. They woke me up and reminded me that we arrived within a hour of closing time! I barely turned the corner and I saw my favorite oil pastels. I love the Portfolio brand water soluble oil crayons for working on white fabric and for making the large Kathy B's murals from her Kid's Art blog.

Another thing I was impressed to see was several boxes of Color Aid paper. I haven't used that since my college days, but it sure was great for making my very LARGE color wheel. Every hue has a tint and shade and there art 220 swatches in the entire box! I loved doing design assignments with that silk screened paper. It reminds me of paint swatches that I often swipe from home improvements stores for my students use and when I make bulletin boards in my classroom. I did not purchase a box, but if I think of something elaborate I may have to dig up some cash to get a box on my next visit.
