I thought that a small, non-chain art supply store would likely have a limited selection and much higher prices. BOY WAS I WRONG! I was happily surprised when I visited the first time. The selection is incredible and the prices are comparable to (and in many cases lower than) the national chain art supply stores. The store is spacious and stocked with everything an artist could need or want. Regardless of your medium, they've got it. Golden brand paints, block printing, pottery, sculpting, wood and masonite boards, portfolios, and I could go on and on. Oh and listen up art teachers: they've got a huge selection of educational art supplies for the youngsters. I've shopped extensively at practically every Miami art supply store and this place has supplies that I've not seen at those other stores. As if the selection and prices weren't enough, the staff are also friendly and knowledgeable. You guys at the University of Miami School of Fine Arts, it is really worth the trip so get the word out about this wonderful new art supply store.
I highly recommend Easel Art to all my fellow friends and students. They have bass wood always in stock for my projects. Easel Art has friendly sales people that actually help you and walk you to the item you actually need. Parking is easy and they are open early 8:30 am and close at 6:30pm. They cut my foam core and mat boards for me and do it with a smile. The store looks small but once you get in the store it is very large. This is one of the few stores that actually has a large selection of drafting tables and all the old time drafting supplies that are hard to get. I asked how long they have been in business and I was told 31 years. Lastly when I pay at the end the owner always has a joke to tell me and always joking tells me thanks for shopping at Publix. I give Easel Art 5 stars for their inventory and 5 stars for their being helpful which you don't find too much anymore..
My wife and I were having a dinner party at our house and we wanted to have some fresh flowers to decorate the tables. The only problem was our budget for the dinner was running out fast. A florist was out of the question, since they charged very high prices. A friend of ours recommended Berkeley. We went there and were overwhelmed by the beauty and quantity of fresh flowers they had in their coolers. While we were there we also went into their Supply Department and purchased the most beautiful vases. I had trouble getting my wife out of there, lol. Everything we ended up buying came out at least half of what it would have cost going to a florist. With the economy as bad as it is these days we are always looking for ways to save money, but still get top quality items. Berkeley is one of those ways!
I have been visiting Crown Hobbies since I was in my low teens. The store has had not very many owners since Mort sold the business. I am very pleased with the new management... Arturo and Jaime are great guys and very knowledgeable in the field. The prices are very reasonable and the service is great. It just feels like an old time hobby store where they may not have every little gadget and yet you will find the odds and ends you need for your project and expert advice.
I never found fresh roses in Miami, was always poor quality roses, they died within three days and never opened but a friend told me about Roses America and found there so many varieties of fresh roses, I bought some yellow roses that opened wide and lasted almost two weeks. The attention was great, they recommended me roses according to my liking and needs, definitely highly recommend Roses America, they make the difference in Miami.
If you want the best customer service in Miami, shop at Easel Art Supply. They are friendly and helpful and a refreshing alternative to the big corporate stores. Huge selection and great prices on any supplies you need. Great custom framing. They can order anything you need and get it here really fast. I have been shopping here for over 25 years and they are the best store in Miami for art supplies.
this store is amazing!! they're the closest art supply store to my area, their prices are great (they offer a 10% student discount), their products are great quality, and the staff and always super friendly and helpful!! they also always have the more difficult-to-find supplies such as ceramic clay I love going there and highly recommend this store to all artists!!
This shop came highly recommended by my friend that just went there and told me about their Buddha selection! I'm so impressed! They have stuff I've never seen. I'm blown away and now am going to do my sisters wedding flowers here! The price was better than the other two quotes I have and they're very nice here! Great place and you have to check it out!
Went there to find out about getting into RC cars. This guy was great very helpful and he knew his stuff about the RC cars. He helped me make a decision that I am still happy about today. I will continue shopping here just for the helpful tips this little shop offers. Also his prices are pretty competive with online pricing. Must check them out.
The best selection of fresh flowers in Miami I've seen!! I was so impressed with all the Buddha stuff they had OMG! If you're into Buddha's this is DEFINITELY your store! They were much cheaper than some of the other stores I priced too! My order was ready on time and people were nice as well! Highly recommend!
