To make the space feel more inviting, beautiful, and comfortable, we’ll be adding benches, shaded areas, artwork, and so much more – and we want YOU to be a part of it all!

Artist And Craftsman Supply Opened In Nearby Brentwood

If you have an interest in arts or crafts then you should know about Artist and Craftsman Supply, which recently opened near Brookland at 1201-1203 Brentwood Road NE (in the shopping center behind the Giant and Home Depot). We recently checked out the store, which has been open for about four weeks, and we were blown away by the size, selection and variety of products.  Here are a bunch of photos we took of the store. (You need flash to see the photos .If you cannot see them, click here to open the album on Flikr.)

There is something for pretty much anyone, from paint, canvas,  and brushes, to decorative paper, stamps, stickers and games to knitting supplies and glitter. Check out their Facebook page here. Welcome to the area and good luck!
