This seems to be true everywhere- I live in a TINY little area with only a few craft stores, most are very specific: yarns, fabrics, scrapbooking. But where am I to buy the little cheapos like beads, felt, etc? This is a big pain.
I went in tonight and all of the blank paper goods (notecards, etc) that I LOVE to work with are all on clearance, same with the scrapbooking papers, which I ALSO use but really dont want to pay full price for at the specialty stores- they're so expensive!
This just seems like such a silly move on wal-mart's part
