Flax seems to have it all

If you are looking for creative inspiration, look no further then Flax. This is the best art supply store in the Bay Area. Their specialty paper selection is incredible. Flax seems to have everything I need.

Wow!

Flax is quite an impressive store. The service is friendly and when it comes to art supplies, they have it all. If you park in their handicapped spot and you don't have a placard, you'd better watch out!
