MUSEjar Art Supply Shop in Buffalo, NY, is a model creative hub. The store inhabits a former auto body garage in historic East Aurora; you’ll know you’ve found the right place when you spot this dreamy winter mural outside. Founded by local artist Vanessa Frost, MUSEjar is one part boutique, one part community studio. The art-school merch includes high-quality oil paints and brushes, calligraphy sets, fancy markers, and watercolor travel palettes. For the less-DIY-but-still-artsy types, there are Baja blankets from Vintage Chameleon, hand-painted ceramic mugs by LaCott Fine Art, pretty Rifle Paper Co. notebooks and calendars, and utility and field knives from LaFon Handmade. Live in the area? Check MUSEjar’s robust events calendar for BYOB paint nights, figure drawing classes, shibori dye sessions, and more.
