The FLAX Credo

Best Art Store

service - We provide the best care by following the Golden Rule. 

selection - We stand behind our products. As artists and crafters ourselves, we use what we sell and trust in the quality. The range of items we offer is intended to suit individual needs and a wide variety of projects. 

price - Our everyday prices represent great savings - the lowest we can go. Straight-up, honest pricing.

inspiration - We spark the creative process. Art is for everyone, and our role is to invite participation and inspire creativity.

~ FLAX has been voted “Best of the Bay” every year since 2001 ~
