We were surprised to see a familiar sight when watching Lifetime's reality fashion show, Project Runway last night.
One of the finalists on the show is from Philadelphia and during her trip home the front of Artist & Craftsman Supply Philadelphia was shown!

Thanks to you, our business is up about 12% this year. The web business is up about 75% over the same time a year ago.
All thanks to you.
We opened a retail store in Kansas City about 18 months ago and rented some extra space to become our web shipping warehouse, some day. Well some day is coming.
Our store/warehouse is located in the crossroads, a developing artsy district. We’ll open this mid-American warehouse in October and to celebrate we’ll be offering, to the 1st of next year, free freight for the items we stock there.
Right now we plan to stock stretched canvas, wood panels, and Shizen Indian papers. Stay tuned, more to come.

Aaron, our Kansas City landlord, he's a nice guy.

Some of you remember the soap opera that began 10 months ago. Mohammad Shafiq Rahman was arrested by the FBI and Homeland Security for possible connection to the Pakistani terrorist who attempted to explode a bomb in Times Square, New York. Also, the South Portland Police piled on.
Now after serving many months in jail and losing employment here at Artist & Craftsman Supply, all charges have been dropped and Shafiq is allowed to volunteer (no compensation allowed of any kind) to program here once again.
Who knows, maybe someday we can pay this innocent, quiet man for his work. He begins 9:30 on Tuesday.
