As kids whenever we would discover something and loudly exclaim, “Look what I FOUND!“ my Dad would reply, “It wasn’t lost.” Such is the case with this art supply store I “found” for myself at 307 Market Street. I guess I haven’t been down to that end of town in a while. The place looks tiny from the outside but is surprisingly deep and packed to the gills with inventory. The small staff was exceedingly nice and helpful. I didn’t need anything, but I did not escape without spending a few bucks.
It looks like a mom-and-pop operation, but is part of an employee-owned chain. I thought it was a little family business until I noticed how much stock they had and how decently everything was priced. It feels like a coffee shop inside that doesn’t serve coffee, and my guess is the clients eat it up.
Me? I just want to find what I’m looking for and not pay a king’s ransom. They carry 0.9mm red mechanical pencil leads which I’ve looked for and never found anywhere else and Golden Digital Grounds. I think I have a new regular art supply store.
