$3.49

oh my goodness! I am floored!
I went to Michael's tonight for my weekly fix of scrap goodies with my 40% off coupon. I was expecting to see a few new things but what I saw really took me by surprise!

Basic Grey --- tons of papers Boxer, Sultry Collection
Imaginisce --- Twitterpatted
We R Memory --- Nonsense Collections
Autumn Leaves
American Crafts --- Amplified and Everyday Collections

and more!!!


Most of these papers were $3.49 A SHEET!!!! A SHEET people! I can't even imagine how much of a profit Micheal's makes on these. They usually sell at a wholesale price of 40-60cents... and they are charging $3.49!!!!!!

I saw the manager at Micheal's and even asked her if they were priced correctly! Her response was " yes, they are pretty aren't they!" Um... YA! These are all older collections probably given away by Basic Grey and others to get rid of stock and I am so SHOCKED!
I REFUSE to pay such a horrific Price for a sheet of paper! Imagine, even with a 40% off coupon they are still making a serious profit.

Please.... Participate in my poll today!
