Update on ordering Art Supplies for Curbside Pickup at the Foster Location-
Starting July 13th we will be extending our hours for pickups as we inch back closer to our "normal" business hours. Starting 7/18 we will be here on Saturdays for curbside pickups too- Woohoo! We know it's been a long few months with limited hours here for pickup and we really appreciate your patience with us during this time. Your orders have kept us going and fueled our creative ideas to adjust our shops to better serve you during this pandemic.
We've really dialed in our no-contact grab-n-go art supplies to be a pretty solid system. If you haven't tried it, we hope you give us a chance to show you how easy and fun it can be. We love doing the shopping for you! We appreciate all of the sacrifices you've made to shop local with us, the time you've taken to follow our new systems, and the grace you've had for us while we create them. Thank you for all of your amazing love & support through all of this. We are super excited to extend our pickup hours and be more available moving forward. I know it's not quite as cool as being open for walk-ins but it is one step closer to that. We do hope to be open again in the near future but we do not have a set date. For now, we will continue expanding hours and growing our curbside pickups and deliveries to be closer to our regular hours.
The Annex location is still open during the week for custom framing- by appointment only. It's easy to book online and simple to change if something comes up. If you want to just shop ready-mades or framing supplies you can put those requests on a curbside pickup at Foster or book an appointment with a framer at the Annex if you want to see and try different choices. We hope to expand the Annex to weekends again soon but do not have a set date for that at this time. We will work with you on meeting your needs and always welcome any feedback you have during these times of reinventing our shops. Don't hesitate to reach out at any time and let us know any feedback that you have.
Every single day, I am filled with gratitude for all of your support during these challenging times- Thank You!!
Stay strong, stay healthy, keep your head up, and keep making lots of art!
