Found Painting books on sale

Hey, guess what? I went by Hobby Lobby again yesterday hoping to find a little gift item for my SIL and I ended up buying three painting books that had been reduced to clearance prices!

Most of the books now are $11.95 and up! I got Sandra Malone's Summer Splash for $3.01, Assort. Artists Paint for the holidays for $2.58, and Gail Eads At Nature's Best for $5.02. I was so excited! I really wanted another one of Sandra Malone's books but not at $12.95. I know, I know, you want a picture. I'll be sure to do that when I get back home. (Oh, I did find a gift for SIL too, a darling little plate with a verse for her new black/white bedroom.) ;o)

Anyone else been finding any new books at bargain prices?

I haven't, but I'm going by the TS today!! I may have to make a run over to our Hobby Lobby. Wonder if they have their books on sale here??? ha Sounds like you got some good ones for great prices. I love Gail Eads. She does a lot of primitives that I like. Enjoy! There is nothing like getting new books to get the ideas flowing! =) ~Anj

Way to go! I wish we had Hobby Lobby here in the NW.

I am a self-proclaimed painting book junkie and can never have enough. I ordered several books on clearance or sale over the last 2 weeks. Be sure to check these places on-line each month for great sale prices on different books....

I'm not big on ordering online only because they don't seem like such a bargain by the time I pay the shipping charges! However, with new painting books selling for $12.95, it just might be worth paying the charges to get them cheaper. Thanks for the links, I'll take a look.

Retiree43, I still need you to email me your address so I can mail the book you wanted from the ones I listed on the exchange side here.
