Cheap Joe’s is local to me, so it’s extremely easy to pop in and get whatever I want. Boone NC is also their warehouse headquarters, so if they don’t have it on the floor, as long as they carry it they can grab it from the warehouse. I know nearly everyone in there, including Joe, so that convenience & service is hard to beat.
However, they don’t carry everything or in the sizes that I prefer. And I also enjoy the ease of shopping online from my PJs on a snowy or rainy day. I’m lazy like that. 🙂
I’ve ordered from Blick for years with consistently outstanding customer service. I also really like Jackson’s. It’s a UK store but shipping to the States is cheap or free, and many of the EU brands prices are much, much better there.
I agree with you about Jerrys. And skip Mister Art also. I haven’t tried MerriArtist so thanks for the tip!
