Last but not least, my friend Pam alerted me to the fact that water based Sharpie paint pens are marked clearance at Michaels (from $4 to $.50) I'm not sure 100% what this means but it doesn't sound good for the Sharpie paint pens. Remember a few years ago when they were discontinued and then Michaels suddenly had them as an exclusive test run (to see how well they'd sell?) It doesn't look good for them now. One store employee commented that the individual pens sold well but the ones in sets did not. I find it hard to believe that most of their pens sell very well considering that they're in a locked case that most folks don't even notice. I did find out that it seems to be across the country. I would recommend having your store SCAN the pen if it's marked at full price.
The good news is that if you love the water based paint pens, you can still find them via other brands like Posca Paint Markers and Molotow One4All. That said, I still love the tips (especially the extra fine tips) of the water based Sharpies but I'll take a pen however I can get it!
And that's the news of the day! Hope that your weekend is a good one. I'm heading off to start packing up my supplies for my NY and MA classes! Leaving on Wonder Woman's Invisible Jet very soon (clearly, I've been spending too much time with my superhero of a boy! NOT!)
