dollar store art supplies?

Does anyone know if any dollar stores carry art supplies?

We have so many different chains of dollar stores around here that I'd like to narrow down the search.

Any names?

are you looking for something specific?

Dollar Daze (I'm in Michigan) has yarn, acrylic paint, silk flowers, beads, etc. I'm usually able to make up a kid craft pretty easily. My kids aren't picky, they paint or glue anything! They have scrapbooking supplies too.

We have a Dollar Tree here that carries a few things. I've seen paint, glitter, foam shapes, flowers, google eyes, scrapbook stuff, some wooden shapes and yarn. It's pretty hit or miss on what they have, though.

I'm actually looking for art canvas that is on a wooden frame.

No, I haven't seen there. But, Borders used to have sketch pads in their budget book section.

No luck with those when I've looked. But check an actual art supply store. My local one had them for less than 1/3 of what Michael's and AC Moore wanted.

Near a college campus you can probably even get a better price.
