I’ve recently become interested in hand-lettering and calligraphy. After a tip from my sister-in-law, I visited this store to get supplies. It’s not the kind of store you usually find me in, I’m not an arty person. And I always thought this store to be really expensive. So, for something I didn’t know I was going to like, I didn’t want to spend a lot of money…
What a surprise this store was! It’s not big, it’s HUGE. Sooooo many choices. Soooo many colors, and, in my opinion, not expensive at all (but what do I know, I’m only a beginner at this).
This is definitely the place to go to if you need art supplies: paint, aquarelle, gouache, paper, pencils, crayons, even simple color markers… even if you’re more into sculpture or working with clay, you’ll also find what you need.
They originally started out as a business in custom frames, back in 1825 and a big part of the store is still equipped as a frames shop. Whatever you have in mind, they can probably help you out.
