Art Ellis is a good place to go if you're looking for some really unique art supplies. They have a good selection of papers, and they are a good source for architectural model building supplies. They are a bit overpriced, and there is competition directly across the street. The staff is hit-or miss. Some days they are perky and helpful and other days they are just plain rude. I generally only frequent Art Ellis if there is something specific that I know they carry that the other art supply stores do not. I like to support local business over national chains, but the prices and customer service don't always support that decision at Art Ellis.
