My favourite art supplies shop in London is Cass Art in Islington. Not only is is suitably close to me but it is big and full of magic stuff at generously discounted prices.
Come look through my peepers and obsess about the brilliance of colour:
There is an essence of uncooked enthusiasm that lingers in the air in art shops. I bounce about from shelf to corner to stand and wonder at everything that my little brain can take in.
After all that eagerness I walked away with a small hoard of implements.
I was given a choice of vibrant coloured bag to take all my bits home in. I chose cadmium red.
Of course, I would like to tell you what I have planned for these items but that would spoil the surprise that I have planned for my little Fushigi Shop.
