Thank you so much for the heads-up. I checked my BL in Fredericksburg, VA, and they had chipboard, vinyl, and felt ones but mainly in black. I haven't tried these yet but for $2, I decided it was time.

Thanks again OP for the PSA

Why don't stores around here EVER have Thickers. My local BL has red foil Chip Chatter chipboard letters for I think $1.50, but like everywhere else around here, no Thickers.

Well, I made a special trip to another BL here in the city and they had NONE! Not one package It's crazy how some of BL's have tons of different ones and other BL's have none.

I went to a third one today in Euless, TX and they had some, too. The one in Euless, Denton, and Lewisville all had TONS and all three of them had different selections. My 3 trip total came to 18 thickers! haha oh, well. That's forty bucks versus, what? eighty, ninety bucks normally?

Here in SA, TX. I found them at two different stores and know of someone here who found them at like two others. I have yet to find them at the two stores closest to me, so I'm gonna keep an eye out for those. Each store has different ones.

I was lucky enough to find them at 2 of my local BL stores. You can see them here: BL Thickers Haul

I'm planning on going to 2 other BL this weekend in hopes of finding some of the foam sets (love those).

I hit 3 bl in north tampa and only 1 had Thickers, glad I found them at the last store so it was not a wasted fieldtrip. I picked up 10 pkgs: poolside vinyl (aqua), giggles foam (brown & white), prancer cb (bright green), pajamas felt (brown, black), darling cb (brown), leg warmers felt (green), black tie velvet (silver) and subway accents in red.

I'm planning on hitting a few more tomorrow on the other side of town. I haven't seen half of these thickers in the lss' around here.

Ok I know I'm obsessing, but what is the western-most point they've been spotted, and does anyone know if there is a pattern to where BL items are distributed first? In other words, has it happened before where a certain area of the states receives items first, and if so, how long does it take for them to reach all stores? Or maybe some stores just never receive certain items... !!

Any insight?

I went to the BL in Farmington, MI today and they didn't have any. I was able to sweet talk my brother in Dayton, OH to go and he found a bunch for me - yippee!

Black glitter, black vinyl, black felt, pink, red, and white.

I'll try another store here in MI tomorrow.

Thanks for the heads up!

I agree, it's become an obsession!! I'm in Houston and hoping the second anyone finds them they post about it! Most of the BL here aren't in great areas and it's not fun to drive all around and stalk them, crossing my fingers we get them soon as it seems the other big cities in TX have them!

I wish I had time to get up to St. Louis. It would be fun to see how many kinds and different colors I could collect. Ithickers.

OMG kinda freaking excited right now, I just found out the BL in Clear Lake has thickers!! I know this is bad but I sent my mom in on her way to work just to check as they didn't have them on Tuesday. First she said they only had brown chit chat and some accents, then she turned a corner and hit the mother load! I can't wait to check out the one by my work now!! So if you live in the Houston area WE HAVE THICKERS
