We provide art supplies in Durango, Colorado and to the entire south-west of Colorado. We have the largest supply of art supplies and art materials in Durango and are continuing to increase our on hand stock to better serve you.
WE’VE TRIED THEM ALL
Better materials help make better art, or at least make the art-making process easier. That’s why we test all potential supplies for both quality and price before bringing them in and offering them to you. We do our best to ensure that you’re getting more than your money’s worth with every purchase. This also means when we say, “this is the best version for your current project,” it comes from personal hands-on experience.
No, we don’t carry everything
It’s a big world of art supplies and we’re only a small store. We physically don’t have space on our shelves. We do try to have a little bit of everything on hand so that you can find some version of what you need for your project.
Not everything is worth it. We really do test out the materials that we carry. If a product isn’t a good value, if the quality isn’t good enough for the price, then we won’t carry it (as long as we have a better option to offer).
We aren’t trying to compete with online retailers or big-box stores that order more each week than we do all year. They get prices from suppliers that we can’t touch – and we’ll be the first to tell you that.
Yes, there are times when we will actually tell you to go elsewhere to buy something! We respect your choice to shop with us and wouldn’t dream of taking advantage (especially when you can buy it elsewhere for the same price our suppliers offer us. That isn’t fair to anyone!)
Custom Art Supply Ordering
If we don’t have what you’re looking for, we’ll either tell you who in town does have it, or order it for you. Yes, we will order specific art supplies for you. We simply add your item onto our regular order and set it aside once it arrives. We’ll call to let you know it’s here. No extra fees – and no obligation to buy. (How easy is that?)
Artists on staff
We certainly don’t know everything, but we will do our best to guide you to the best option for whatever project you might be working on. Don’t need anything at the moment? Stop by and say hi – we love hearing about your current projects!
Finished with your art? We are happy to help you preserve and display it!
