Default Staples/Frixion.

I was just in Staples in Ontario, Canada and thought I would pick up a pkg. of Frixion pens since I was there. Couldn't find them and asked the clerk. He couldn't find them and asked his supervisor. Supervisor said I was the second person asking for them this week and they are no longer in their catalogue. WHAT!! I guess I am going to have to pay quilt shop prices for them now.

My husband bought some for me in a discount store a while back. May have been a Dollar store. Will see if I can find out for you. Hate for you to pay QS prices for them.

Tartan ... I was in a Staples today and saw them. Some of the smaller stores re-merchandised this summer, and had a lot of items withdrawn from their locations. Yet the larger stores have the items, or you can order online. You had me curious, and I checked online, and yes ...

Last week I was trying to get the temporary adhesive glue sticks or tape. The store I was in didn't have them, and told me why! Luckily for me, I have options as to stores, so I know which locations will NOT be getting my business from here-on, just because of the aggravation factor! Might as well go straight to the full line store.

Sorry, but I forget which part of the province you are in. If by chance you have a FedEx Kinkos, they also sell FriXions.

Good Luck ... and hopefully you can get them. Much lower costs than at an LQS, especially if you buy the six pack.

Thanks everyone!! Thanks QuiltE I will look in one of the bigger Staples and stock up. If that fails, I look for a FedEx Kinkos. I felt like throwing myself down on the floor and having a temper tantrum and restrained myself but it was close.

I'm somewhat more local than the others ... so if you can't get them in your locale, please let me know, and I'll send them on their way to you!

Have you checked Amazon.com? They usually have things cheaper than retail.
