Awhile back the Linens and Things near my place closed when they all went out of business. I have been waiting and waiting to see what they were going to put in to take it's place -- was probably a little too excited to learn it's a Michaels! It's not that I even love, love Michaels, but to have one right in walking distance from me?! This is great!
Real pretty picture I took, huh?
It's in the shopping center on Clark and Halsted. The one with DSW and Marshall's. I'm happy to think that when I need things for a project, picture frames, cheap gift wrapping supplies or silk flowers (haha, JK on the silk flowers note) I can head over to Michaels! Literally a minute walk from my place.
I mean come on, they sell the Martha Stewart crafts! Not to mention that baking section they have if you're in a pinch and need sprinkles or a muffin pan or something.
Not sure when it opens, but I'll keep you updated!
