We found a huge assortment of paints at our local Dollar Tree, and there were plenty of familiar names like Prang and Crayola on the shelves. Our location had acrylic paints, tempera paints, chalkboard paints, washable paints, window paint markers, finger paints, and children’s paint palettes.

    Why is it that there are NO DT in the Minneapolis or surrounding areas that have crafters square ?? It’s so irritating to see all this wonderful stuff and not be able to get it unless I buy it by the case which is just ridiculous!! Please give us a crafters square here !!😔😔😔

  8. Tamara

    None of the Crafter Square stores I have been in look like this. The ones I have been in have had limited product.

  9. Corrina

    I agree, none of the craft square stores I have been in look like this. They don’t even have half of what is listed.

  13. Katie Meigel

    There are several DT stores near me that have new expanded Crafter’s Square sections, separate from the usual craft and school supply aisles. They have a UTILITY KNIFE SET (à la Xacto knives) with 6 blade styles, a variety of decorative chalkboard tags and clips, chalk writers, metallic markers, craft clamps, cork sheeting for bulletin boards, wooden crafts, letters and numbers in foam and wood, a wide assortment of cute little glass bottles with corks and other craft containers, wood dowels, a variety of paints and adhesives, and I could go on and on.

  14. Letisha

    I have been searching for 8×10 canvases at all the local dollar trees & can’t seem to find any!? Even if i go on DT website they’re not there for me to order!? I need approximately 50 of them. Im using them to make centerpieces for my wedding. How can I get this particular brand at this amazing price? Help!!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hmm, you could always double check with your store to see if they know when they might have them in stock again. Other places that may be good to check are Walmart or Michaels, although they may be a bit higher in price. It looks like you can also grab various 8×10 canvases in larger packs on Amazon. Hope this helps!

  15. Laura Jeffcoat

    Are there any of the expanded crafters squares in Atlanta? I live in the area but can’t find a single one near me and I don’t know all the zip codes in Atlanta to be able to search every area.
