We finally are up and running and have many of the supplies we've wanted to have in stock. We are still waiting on many more
that different customers have requested. In fact, we get new items in weekly! We are in the
(map on our Contact Us page) on the Mezzanine Level. We are currently utilizing a small portion of that floor. Our plans are to expand and take over the
entire floor as we grow. As we've done thus far, we will grow as the need and demand of you, our customers, dictates.
We want to insure we are around for many years to come and we believe that doing it slowly and carefully is the smartest way to go.
Many items that we still do not have in stock we can still attain by special order. We've come to the realization that we will
NEVER carry EVERYTHING. We have access to literally over a half a million items through our various distributors but we'd need a
humongous store to carry it all. So, special order is the way to go. Don't despair though! Smaller special order items can be
received in 3-10 days via air. We place air orders weekly to insure that smaller items requested or items we've run out of, are replenished
as quickly as possible. We feel this makes up for our small size and current inability to carry as much as we'd like to have.
We now have a full range of paints in stock as well as the TOTALLY awesome Pan Pastels
! We've brought in jewelry making supplies and
due to the popularity, have been bringing in more origami items. Our children's items, though not so popular on the website for
some reason have flown out of the store, so, we are increasing our selection of those items as well, including many more colour and paint
by numbers kits. Colour by numbers kits aren't just for kids! (as many of you have admitted to in our conversations in the store).
We are going to be having our Grand Opening soon and we will keep you posted via our Facebook page and to our newsletter subscribers
when that event will occur.
We also have a free seminar planned for Saturday, 29th September from 6-8 p.m. Get a babysitter and come out for a great free evening
with complimentary nibbles and drinks. The seminar will be a 2 part occasion. We have Steve Lynton from Armadillo Art who will be
doing a Pigments 101 lecture and Q&A session. Great for beginners and professionals! Learn about how paints are made and the differences
between the pigments used in various grades of paint. The 2nd part will be from the inventors of Pan Pastels! Get to watch a live demo
and ask any questions you may have about this fantastic product! We urge you to try them out before the lecture but if you feel
safer waiting, we understand. We will be drawing for a door prize and are also working on a special discount for that night only.
We have so many plans in the works for all of you wonderfully creative people out there on our beautiful island and we don't want to
overwhelm you with the vast amount of new items and services coming your way in the near future. Suffice to say we're VERY excited
to reveal these plans to you over time as we know they are imminent.
Please stop in the store soon to check us out! We're here from Monday - Saturday (holidays excluded) and open from 11 a.m. - 7 p.m.
Hours we believe to be a lot more useful to all of you.
Your creative partners,
Lexy and Dion Correia
