I live in BC and am thinking about making the trek down to Washington to do some wedding shopping for decor at the Dollar Tree and JoAnn. Just wondering if anyone knew if JoAnn is much cheaper than Michael’s in Canada. Michael’s is wayyyy overpriced- is JoAnn just the same sorta deal?
Also- are there any good party supply stores in WA that you can reccomend?

We have Michaels in the US too, and I think Michaels is way better than Joanns. Although it depends what you are buying, Joanns is more aimed towards sewing/fabric. Do you have a Hobby Lobby near by? That is better than both of those places. You can also shop at dollartree.com. And make sure to go onto all of these places websites, because they always have coupons, I don’t walk into any of them with out a coupon!

If you shop online at dollartree.com you can have the items shipped to the store for free. It’s a really good idea if you want to buy things in bulk.

@ithinkpink90: Agree, Michaels is much better than Joanns and Joanns is also pretty over priced.

Right now, I think the prices here between JoAnns and Michaels are pretty comparable (I live in WA). If you do head this way to shop at either, I’d recommend picking up a local newspaper or circular to look for coupons (they are in almost every Sunday edition…40-50% off a regular priced item…and not much of the wedding decor really goes on sale so it works for that stuff usually!). Also, sign up to get coupons via email for both of them by going to the websites (that is what I do….I am in both stores at LEAST twice a week!!).
