Some people seek out landmarks, religious sites and museums when they travel. I like to seek out those kind of places too, but my favorite place to find in a new city is the art supply shop. I am always searching for a new brush or paint color or ink pen or some type of supply that I have never seen before. Also I enjoy going to these art shoppes because they are not big box stores like many of our art supply stores in the U.S. They are like the one I visited in Edinburgh this week, a quaint shop with windows filled with tempting supplies.
In this shop I purchased a 6" metal ruler, a tube of burnt sienna watercolor paint and a new kind of brown ink pen. I used no coupons and nothing was advertised buy one, get your second one 50% off.
