I ususally love Michaels, and they did have what I was looking for, but it was a mess in there. Perhaps it was around holiday season, so it was unusually busy and messy, but the staff was nowhere to be found and hardly helpful. Decent prices though and everything you would ever need for arts and crafts.
PROS: cheap prices, everything you would need for arts and crafts
CONS: bored, unhelpful staff; messy aisles
