A new art supply shop will be opening soon in a large building on Second Street near 4th Avenue. It's an outpost of the 29 year-old Artist & Craftsman Supply, which has 20 locations in 13 states.
The store (which judging by the space will be more of an emporium) will sell everything an artist could want, ranging from brushes, paints, and canvas to knitting sets, arts & crafts supplies, and carving tools.
This shop certainly looks like it'll fill a niche in the neighborhood; it'll come in handy for everyone from kids who have art projects to painters, printmakers, sculptors, knitters, and crafts enthusiasts. It's hard to tell if they'll be fixing the facade up at all, but the fact that the sign is already up probably means it'll be opening sooner rather than later.
Many thanks to a tipster for sending in the photo.
