The only places I buy craft supplies are a couple of major name craft stores in Odessa, or here at my local Wal-Mart if I'm in desperate need of something or if it's on clearance.  I have checked out charity organizations, like Goodwill and Salvation Army and a couple of similar places, but I wasn't too impressed.  I know there has got to be more and better places.    I'd go to El Paso if I knew I could get a good haul there, but there could be some closer stores that have treasures too, I just don't know.

Where do other West Texans go to get their craft stuff?

I knit and there's a good yarn store called Sarita's near my apartment in El Paso, but overall I think the city is a little lacking in the carft stores department. There's an art supply store called Art Center that has art supplies. They have a great paper selection.

there were a couple places downtown (not a native so I'm afraid I'm not going to be as helpful) that sold fabric by the pound.  Mostly "scrap" or "remnant" but some of the pieces were pretty darn big (100" wide by six yards, made a nice cloak) and was really cheap for higher end upholstery and drapery stuff, most of what I saw would be good for home dec, garments and crafts.

Other than that I'm afraid I have no clue.
