Favorite Art Supply Stores

Updated: Feb 23, 2021

So I've been thinking about some of my favorite places to shop in the area and wanted to share a bit about them because I really want to share the love!

#1 - Scraps KC - They are amazing. Think like an art supply thrift store. Or Habitat Restore but for art supplies. I have found amazing ink, house paint, oils, acrylics, cool paper, kids' school supplies, frames, fabric, trims, seasonal decor. It is insane how much stuff they have and their prices are unbeatable! They are also a nonprofit helping the homeless! Your money spent there is doing double the work compared to a traditional art supply store!

#2 - Artist and Craftsman Supply - this place is great and the kind of place I want to live at. The supplies are so affordable, especially if you need niche supplies. The floor painting makes me happy walking down the aisles, the people working are fun, and you will always find something unexpected.

#3 - Creative Cold Snow - The Westport Location. I have been going here since childhood when I dreamed of being a student at the KC Art Institute. All of the supplies, organized in such a fun yet orderly way. Walking into the building is like taking a deep breath on a rainy day - relaxing.

If you haven't checked these places out, you really should. Take a break from big box Joanns or Hobby Lobby and go find the local shops!
