I'm trying to look for some origami paper I can buy at a retail walk in store, but I can't seem to find any. Target doesn't have any, the local Asians shop don't have any here, Toys'R'Us do not have any either. Where can you get them?!

Near me AC Moore, Michaels & Joanns all carry it.

ETA: I've seen it at Borders & Barnes and Noble before as well.

Any craft store should have it. I would suggest Michaels and Joanns. Mainly because those are the two I am the most familiar with.

I saw some in Michaels a couple days ago and they have a very large variety of colors.
