I’ve been investigating and making notes all year about these miraculous markers. I purchased some MFT A La Mode and Pure Innocence girls earlier this year and have had a ball coloring them with my Bic Mark Its and it’s pushed me over the edge to a point where I knew I had to have Copics!
I love shopping at Scrap-Mart, they have free shipping on a lot of items, including Copics!! Yay!!

I chose the colors that I wanted, unfortunately Scrap-Mart didn’t have all of the markers I ordered by the time they filled my order but they did have a 20% off sale going. And I made a 2nd order with JoAnn’s Online, they had a special $2.99 shipping. So I got my 35 markers from both places for $160.19, a mere $28.54 less than a 36 piece kit. If I had it to do again, I would probably just order a kit. There are nice options in both 24 piece and 36 piece, but they just didn’t seem to have all of the colors I wanted.
