The Art Supply Depo has become one of my favorite stores in the Toledo area.

The Art Supply Depo is located on S St Clair St, near Lafayette St in the Warehouse District of downtown Toledo.
It opened in the summer of 2011.

If you can't find the supplies that you're looking for, tell the owners, and they will begin selling them. Very accommodating. They've added a lot of new items in recent months.
