Homecraft Express, Inc

PO Box 24890
San Jose, CA 95154-4890
This company sells books at 20% - 40% off. They are shown in black and white so the best way is to go someplace like Michaels or The Artist’s Club and pick out the book you want, then order it here. But get a few friends to order with you because they charge for shipping. They also have very good prices on painting supplies.
