Holiday Sale 2019

November 4th thru December 31st, 2019

In my 25+ years at Wet Paint, I’ve cemented a few (what I like to think are) “funny-but-truisms” around this art store thing.  Given our next door proximity to a hardware store, we often see confused folks who have stopped one storefront too soon asking “Is this the hardware store?”  I always tell them “It’s the hardware store for artists!”  And it’s true!  Just like the hardware store, our customers depend on us having the tools of their trade, in stock when they need them, so they can use those tools to create something.

Another of my witticisms, “You can never step in the same Wet Paint twice,” is just a silly way of saying that everything around us is in constant flux.  Some of this change is intentional – we’re always looking for new & novel ways to keep our inventory & experience interesting – and some of it is inevitable; valued staff people move on (not often, but sometimes!) and beloved products get discontinued.

Balancing the former – Keep things consistent! – with the latter – Things are different! – is probably the biggest challenge we face on a daily basis, whether planning our classes, producing our annual Holiday catalog, or just opening the door for business.  And speaking of the catalog…we’ve balanced familiar favorites, with exciting exclusives, & fresh finds (and lots of alliteration).  Pick your favorites, then come see all of the gazillions of other things we have at the store…for artists of every age & intention!

Scott & I, and the entire Wet Paint family, wish you the happiest of Holiday Seasons!

-Darin Rinne, co-owner
