Re: crayola markers not working

Sounds like old stock to me. I'd go back to the supplier and see if they'll
replace them for you. Definitely not a problem to store them as you
describe. With moderate usage, the only reason I would see for markers to
dry up so quickly is if the tops were not put back on tight enough. Judy
