Above ground Art Supplies

This year, likely sensing the move many creative types are making out to Toronto's Junction neighbourhood, Above Ground Art Supplies opened a second location at Dundas West and Keele. Its McCaul location (8,000 square feet spread across a pair of multicolour heritage townhouses) is still going strong, though, thanks to its neighbour, OCAD University. There's also a great Above Ground online store catering to art supply shoppers near and far.
