Best Craft Store, October 2007

For amateur crafts-people, Michaels is Home Depot. It’s not just because this arts and crafts chain has the exclusive on Martha Stewart’s new line. It’s that the following supplies can be found for a rainy Saturday afternoon: bracelet kits, flower-drying kits, glass-painting kits, dream-catcher kits, aluminum easels, airbrushes, leather cement, bamboo knitting needles, neon fabric paint, and a Tweakie P. Slipper Shoe Mule with Purple Marabou (bunny sold separately). If they don’t carry it here, it isn’t worth being accidentally glued to your forehead.
