Michael's Craft Store | New Spring Kitchen, Farm Inspired and By the Sea Themed Merchandise

Today's finds at a Michael's Craft Store. All of the Christmas themed items has been moved out of the aisles for clearance and they are beginning to stage the Spring themed flowers and Home Decor products.

My store didn't have the flowers all set but the Sea, Kitchen, Farm Inspired and Signs filled up two aisles and the back wall.

Not yet sale priced, these are well worth checking out and using your 50% off coupons on if you have them.
