hi, all – one of my customers has to sell her Mabef Easel.  It is lightly used, does have acrylic paint on it – but in decent condition.  This model’s price new is $249.95.  She would like to receive $125 for it.

You can contact her at saritali@thelandlockedsailor if you’re interested.

of course we’re open!

I’ve noticed that there’s been some confusion regarding whether Art Central is open or not on holidays. 

We close for the following:

New Years Day  *  Easter  *  Memorial Day Independence Day Labor Day  * Thanksgiving Day *  Christmas Day

Additionally, we close early on Christmas Eve & New Years Eve.

Other than that, barring unforseen events, you can expect to find us here Monday thru Saturday, 10am – 5pm.

Would it help you if we stayed open until 5:30pm during the week?   Please let us know!

We look forward to seeing you soon!
