Art Supply Search in Portland, Maine

I am on my family vacation and of course I can't go without exploring the local art supply stores.  One of my favorite is an Art store near Portland: Artist Craftsman I can always count on them for having exotic hand made papers from Indian and a wonderful selection of colors in any medium. Here are my new toys for this trip:  handmade papers, dip pen with inks, sea sponges, oil pastel (didn't have this beautiful poppy orange color yet).  I did get the rub on letters at Art Mart in downtown Portland but would recommend the Artist Craftsman store if you only have time for one stop as I often do.
