Arty Shopping

I've been to Seawhite's factory shop at Partridge Green today to stock up on paints, sketchbooks, boards etc.  When I was teaching art and textiles at secondary school,  we always used to buy our sketchbooks there -as so many schools and colleges do! The staff are knowledgeable and helpful, and I was delighted to see their range of art materials has recently expanded into a second room. There is an art exhibition at the back and some interesting paintings and information about local events in the foyer. I have always found their products to be very good quality but at wholesale prices.  Has anyone else got a favourite supplier?
