Hello! I need to get a patterned transparency, and I wanted to see if anyone knew of any brick and mortar stores that carried them. I found some very pretty ones here on Two Peas, but I don't need anything else right now, and it would be silly to pay more than $6 to ship a single transparency! I'm in California. I think our only big, chain-type craft stores are Michaels, Hobby Lobby, and Jo-Anns... do any of those places carry them?
I guess I could always call around to the few surviving scrapbook stores in the area.

But I didn't see any designer ones or anything nicer. Pretty basic stuff. They have stars and stuff too. Oh, and they weren't even 12x12. They were 8.5x11.
Checking your lss would be a good idea!
I do get some solid vellum from m's and hl. Then I just order specialty sheets from 2peas when I'm ready for a big order.

Oh, and I started misting my vellum sheets as well. I took a soft white and a clear and I misted them with gold. Looks awesome! I had been wanting the Maggie Holmes vellums-the gold polka dot and doily. But they are often out of stock. So I created my own! Just an idea

I've purchased patterned transparencies from Hob Lob before. At my store, they are in the aisle with the specialty papers, like the fabric papers, not in the aisle with the open stock patterned paper and paper pads.
