Does anyone know where I can purchase a large sheet of thick (about
3 1/2 ft long and 2 1/2 ft high) paper that is attractive? Not construction
paper. I've already checked on 4th street (not the right colors, looking for
a brownish salmon color... and too expensive). I wish to cover up a half-circle
window in my son's room and taped up grocery bags are getting alittle old.
Thanks in advance
Amsterdam Art on University Ave. in Berkeley has the largest selection
of papers around, and the people working there are really knowledgeable
You should have no problem finding something there!
Try Amsterdam Art on University Ave., Berkeley.
Why not get some grocery bags without writing and let your son decorate
them? When we had to get vinyl window shades instead of curtains (dust mite
allergy), my then-kindergarten son decorated them. Now, six years later,
they are still a source of pride and comfort. (I was planning to have him do
new ones as he got older, but he won't part with these.) Maybe your son will
end up with an inexpensive, easily replaceable memory, too.
For a great selection of all types of paper try Flax in SF (on Market
nr. Gough). Its an art store and they have the most amazing paper
collection I've ever seen. Granted, its a trek but may be worth it.
Amsterdam Art in Berkeley has the best paper department I have ever
seen. They have lots of printmaking, exotic, handmade and basic papers
and are located on University Ave in Berkeley. You can surely find a
lot of options there.
Flax in San Francisco is a large art supply store and they have tons
and tons of different types of papers. I'm sure you'd find something
there. You might even want to check out other local art supply stores
on this side of the bay too.
