I really, really love my Colleen colored pencils. You might remember when I first reviewed my set of 24 double ended pencils. Purchased on eBay and shipped all the way from Thailand, they were the first colored pencils I ever really loved to use. With leads like creamy butter, I didn't want to put them down. I used many of those double pencils to nub-like status and quickly determined that I must have more.
I ordered a set of 48 full sized pencils from the same seller on eBay and when I received them, I was slightly disappointed. The pencils worked the same, no quality issues, but in the full set of 48 I felt like the color selection could have been better. Not as many bright & light colors I would have liked... more browns & greens than I need but I don't care. I love using these and will continue to use them.
I just wish I could get them in the States so I didn't have to pay so much. These pencils are inexpensive, it's the shipping from Thailand that bumps up the cost. ($23 total w/ shipping for the set of 48) I wish JetPens would carry them......
