Blowout Clearance Sale @ Erickson's

It's like that old joke..."I have good news and bad news..."; except that it's not funny. Erickson's Custom Framing and Art Supplies in downtown Toms River has finally succumbed to the plight of most independant art supply stores. The big box stores and the "cheaper on the Internet" mentalities have killed the last remaining true fine art supplier in Ocean County. Erickson's sadly announced that they are having a 50% off clearance sale on all the art and drafting supplies in the store. They will, in the future, concentrate on custom framing, with more emphasis on showing local artists' work in the gallery section. As an artist, and employee of Erickson's, I am totally bummed that this hard decision had to be made. BUT, for you folks that like to save a buck or two, and I know you're out there cuz I hear it every day, everything is 50% off the listed price. Everything. One half off. Yes, the paper is 50% off. Paint. Brushes. Canvas. Pencils. Markers. Portfolios. Everything. So get your butts in to Erickson's before all the good stuff's gone. And when you come in, please don't ask me where you're going to get your art supplies now, cuz I don't know, either. :(
