Default Michael's Clear 1.00 Stamps in USA?

Is there any point in checking and rechecking the Michaels in the States? I had heard that they were only in Canada. I have gone to our local store and they only have a few of the wood mounted ones. I am from Michigan.

Default Found all in MN

Found all 16 sets last weekend here in the Twin Cities. I think different Michael's get them at different times. Even here in the cities, some Michael's have them and some do not.

Keep checking. I found them in Oklahoma City at a smaller Michaels, and also in a larger store about 30 minutes away from here.

They were almost out of sight on the bottom row of some $1 bins. You really had to look for them. The clerks were clueless when I asked, so I just found them myself.

I found them in Fargo, ND. At our store, they weren't in the same bin as the wood mounted $1 stamps.

I found them at the Michaels in Leesburg Virginia. They weren't in the round things at the front of the store but in those crates with all of the other dollar stuff.

Anyone seen them in Texas? I looked about a week ago and they didn't have them and hadn't heard of them.

I stopped a week ago and no dice but I went back today and found several sets at one of the stores near me so I would definitely think it worth your while to keep checking!

Off to play with my new sets! TEEHEE

I found some in NY, but I honestly can't say if it was all 16 sets - didn't seem like it, maybe only 8? But yeah we had them, not in the usual $1 stamp bin but in a longer run of racks with other $1 items in them.

Just a heads up, we didn't get very many at all - maybe 3 dozen or so at most and they are gone. I think there may have been 5 or 6 plus a couple blocks left in the bin when I was in this morning. We just got them in on Thursday.

We do have wm stamps back in the clearance--$3, $5 and $7

I'll post here as soon as we get more in. I work there

Peoria JoAnn's only had 4 clear stamp ($1) left today and about 6 or 8 wm. Didn't think to ask Jenny if they would be getting more in.

Default $1 stuff

unfortunately, the $1 stuff is not an orderable product. We don't know until we open the box what we get and when. You just have to keep checking back or make friends with the Front End supervisor - she's usually in charge of the tower baskets.

Akron OH - I found 6 different sets and 2 blocks - but it looked like everything had been picked over, so I'm sure there were more sets to choose from. I have been so disappointed in Mike's lately that I quit going to the store for a while, just happened to stop in with my 40% for something specific and saw the $1 bin.

I am also in Michigan - Detroit area and there are 3 Michael's by me and I know that two out of the three carry the wooden and unmounted $1 stamps. I haven't been to the third store in about 6 months.

I'm in Austin, TX. There are 2 Michael's near me. One store had the clear stamps but they were almost gone, especially after I bought 11 if them. The other store has not gotten them in at all. The cashier knows me and would have told me if any had gone through the checkout.

Found mine today, all 16 plus 2 blocks in Missoula, Montana. They had a bunch, and that is probably because the little buggers are so hard to find unless you are looking very carefully, I almost passed them right by. -MJ
