Match That!

Even if you aren’t buying materials, but just have a question, we’ll do what we can to find you an answer. We have been known to identify unknown paints and pigments from a small paint chip, and can help you find a comparable material to replace that stuff “you’ve had forever in an old jar, and you just used that last drop of, but don’t know what it’s called.” We get those questions a lot! Just bring in your mystery something-or-other, and we'll do what we can to help you identify it.

Gift Services

Customer Service Makes Us Different!

Since our start in 1963, we have gained a broad knowledge of what things used to be made with, in addition to what current trends are. We stay up-to-date with the best products out there, while still retaining our knowledge of the old-school materials. So, if you have any questions about art supplies, whether we carry it or not, we are more than happy to help you out! The working artists on staff can help you figure out what materials are best for a specific project, or help you troubleshoot problems that have arisen during the process. Because of our framing experience, we can also help plan your work so that it is easier to frame later.

It is not uncommon to overhear our staff giving mini art and framing lessons when talking with our customers. We are passionate about that we do, and we love to share tips and tricks whenever we can!
