So - these much sought after items are now available in the UK.

Has anyone else seen the ad? I thought it was kinda amusing.

I've seen Sharpies in WH Smiths, just in blue, black & red though. Have you seen them anywhere else?

Enquiring minds need to know   Grin

I've been buying Sharpies from Staples for the past 5 years or so. Only in black, blue and red though. Hopefully I'll be able to get a wider range of colours now Smiley

I paid 99p for a single black pen, but that was an introductory price and I can't remember how much it was going to be full price. The packs started at around 4.99.

After cherade9's post, I looked round the Staples website. They have the mini pen packs in other colours. A trip to Staples may be in my future.

I couldn't see any on the WH Smiths website. But there is a Sharpie UK website http://sharpiebuddy.co.uk/sharpiebuddy.html

I got hold of packs of mini-sharpies in black, red, blue and green and other more funky colours which if I remember rightly include pink and purple. I got them in WH Smiths, Crawley, West Sussex.

Haven't used them yet though...

I love the ads  Grin lol
I went on a sharpie hunt the other day but as we live in a pretty small town didn't have much luck. We do have a Partners but they only had mini ones - 49p each.

I cannot wait to see the prices they're going to charge for say, a pack of 24 colours... I bet it will be very expensive.

The Works has the minis in blue, pink, orange and lilac for 49p, and packs for 4 for 1.99, but only in blue, pink, green & turquoise (in Dundee at least), which is much cheaper than WH Smiths.

I was soo tempted to buy a cheap pair of canvas shoes just to draw on them with my new pens.   Grin

when I went to the US last year I bought so many packs of coloured rainbow sharpies, but even in the US they worked out at about 10 (mind you that is not bad really considering). It would be fab if they started selling them here in the UK.
Sharpies are amazingf 'cos they are permanent, but have small nibs so are good for detail, and the best bit is they come in every colour you can imagine!
