After 490 days of operating solely on curbside pickups and deliveries, we have reopened our Art Supply Center for in-store shopping. We are dedicated to keeping our shops safe for both staff and customers. We have many Covid safety protocols you can learn more about here. We also have safety measures we will be taking for in-store shopping that will help us maintain our goals and do our part keeping Portland healthy. Find more details about in-store shopping here.
Some important things to note:
👉🏼Limit to 10 people at a time in the shop
👉🏼Masks are required inside, regardless of vaccination status.
👉🏼 Sidewalk Sale outside, weather permitting.
👉🏼 Order ahead pickups & deliveries still available.
👉🏼ALL custom framing is By Appointment at our Laurelhurst location on Ash st. DIY frame kits, hardware, and pre-cut mats are still available at Foster but all framing staff is at the frame shop.
We have worked so hard these past months on a major remodel of the shop. We have deep cleaned the whole place, moved almost everything around, built new things, fixed old things, and really opened up the space. I'm excited to show off all of the things we've been working on behind the scenes while we did the shopping for you. I have lots of exciting news to share soon, so stay tuned for more details in my upcoming posts. Many things in our remodel have been carefully thought out for future ideas and dreams as well as mindfully setting things up in a manner to keep all staff working through the pandemic and make the shop more safe for shoppers.
Are you not sure about in-store shopping yet or playing it extra safe in the pandemic? We totally understand and can appreciate that!! Let us do the shopping for you. We will be keeping all of our online order options and still doing curbside pickups & deliveries within 5 miles of the shop. I am excited about the creative use of our new ordering systems making in-store shopping easier and quicker. It is a great way to order ahead the things that you really need and stay in your budget. If you order a pickup and want to peek around when you get here, it is an easy way to do that and still be able to grab-n-go at anytime, knowing that your art supply list is already taken care of. We are always happy to do the shopping for you, just like we have been for the last year+! Feel free to do a combo of online orders and in-store shopping anytime you want. Please do leave us enough time to shop for you and process your order before you arrive. Calling or texting in orders are another way to shop ahead when you know you are coming in soon.
It feels so great to finish up our remodel and have y'all back in to visit. It's been fun seeing familiar faces and catching up the last few weeks, it feels pretty epic. If we weren't still in a pandemic, I'd throw a big party, but we can still celebrate in small mini ways. We have survived an insane year+ and we truly would not be here without every single one of you. Thank you for keeping us around!
If you have ordered from us this past year and a half- THANK YOU!! You have no idea how deeply thankful we are for your loyal support! Your amazing orders and encouragement have literally kept us working and moving forward through the hardest of days. We simply would not have made it without every single one of you. Please be sure to connect with me and let us know when you stop by. I'm in awe that we have not laid any staff off and have been able to keep serving our community in creative new ways. I look forward to doing many more years of that!
We are still in a pandemic, unfortunately. So please bring your masks for inside the store. We are dedicated to keeping our stores safe for everyone. Thank you for respecting other people's space and practicing social distancing while in our shop. Our remodel will hopefully make this easier. Some items are now "order at the Bar" and we have creative menus and ways to easily see the options available for the products behind the bar. This keeps my entire staff working safely and makes the flow of the store more open to shop.
As always- - - Stay healthy, be safe, and keep making lots of art!!
We love y'all!!
