This part of K-town is oddly reminiscent of San Francisco. Tops is part of a little strip of shops in a cute brick building, with parking behind the store.
When I walked in I was immediately approached by someone and asked if I could be helped. I told him I was looking for some Copic markers and he showed me around, pointing out all the different markers they had. They have a large selection of copic markers in all colors with different nibs. For a small store they have a wide variety of art supplies.
They were even nice enough to give me a student discount even though I haven't been one in eons.
I'll definitely be back.
family run, customer service oriented, convenient, parking available, all the supplies you need. Also has some dress-maker supplies and muslin available. Also does scissor sharpening while you wait. I visit there often. Caters to students. :)
I have been a loyal customer for 4 years now, they will gladly answer any questions or order anything you need with a smile! Very knowledgeable people. Their prices can be on the higher side, but only because they are a family business, not a big chain (like Blick or Pearl). I'd gladly pay a few cents more to support a family business where they smile when they see me and remember my name.
