My thought is that someone decided they didn't want to use this art stuff, and they made it all to the yard sale. There was three QVC boxes filled with unopened supplies. I paid a dollar for each box...nothing has been used. There was 3 boxes. Brushes, paints, all kinds of things. I still haven't opened any of it. There are even movies showing how to do different things. I have been going on Fridays before my lunch group meets....we don't have yard sales year round.
