Since 1960 Mendel's has been a family owned business in the heart of the Haight on a mission to fulfill the creative needs of our customers. Mendel's have their own changing mix of bits and pieces for their customer to make their vision in their head a reality. Rather than sell you a finished piece of artwork, Mendel's have the supplies you need to create your own bit of art. Everyone is creative in their own way. You just have to find the medium or technique that opens that creative door.
