View Full Version : Online art shops in Europe?

HI Pastel buddies!
A happy, healthy and creative year to you all!

I recently wanted to buy a video in an online art shop in the States and they charged $35 p&p which made me cancel the order. Luckily some friends who are coming to visit will bring the video.
But I wonder if anyone knows of a good reliable online art shop somewhere in Europe. I also would like to try out some other kinds of paper and all I can find here in Amsterdam is Canson (which I know and like) and artfix which is too expensive for my dabblings.

Happy New Year to your there Madder!!!

Saw your post about online art shops there and remembered a thread from a while back that might be helpful. It was initially posted in the coloured pencil forum but the adresses lead to shop that specialise in all media.

I've only used one - discountart in the UK - so I can't say how reliable they are. I still haven't received my delivery yet, but it was the day before Chirsmas when I ordered...

Hope that helps,

If you speak german, ask the following guys for a catalogue: http://www.gerstaecker.de

Huge selection of everything art! They'll charge you around 7EUR for sending the thing though. It's cheap, seeing it weighs 3kg! :cat:

Edit: didn't see the post before mine, heh ;)

Excellent! Thanks very much!
And nice to "meet" you guys.
I lived in Dublin for 6 years btw, lovely place, went to that shop close to Stephen's Green to buy my very first pastel stick. Important moment in my life :)
