I have been very pleased with Dick Blick, and think they are the greatest! Their products are of high quality, and the customer service is second to none.
When I was looking for paint sets, etc for painting I found this great site - dickblick.com. Clearance items are amazing.
I am a full-time professional artist and buy most of my supplies from DickBlick.com. Their regular prices for canvases, brushes and paint, in particular, are much cheaper than my local art supply stores and they deliver to my door. Customer service is usually great, too. Just requires planning ahead, but the cost savings and wide selection of products are wonderful. I have been telling my fellow artists about the place, too!
Rather then buying even cheap art supplies why not invent new ones.
