buying art supplies






Cornérs is where I buy my art supplies. Here you buy most of your materials over counter - an old wood and glass counter with drawers - and this is where the artists who know what they are going to buy come. No material for scrap booking, papers in happy colours with real flowers in them or piles of great things you didn't know you needed ... until you saw them.

The prices are always good and things are not on offer. The walls are hang with artists self portraits from the 50's until now. But the best thing is that I know their names - and they know mine. If I have forgotten my wallet I can always pay next time. They'll just write it down.

Hi Alexandra,
This sounds like a great shop! And such a contrast to the monster Hobbycraft where I often go and, yes, buy things I never knew I needed and probably don't!
