Roy & Anne Clau­son pur­chased the office sup­ply store in 2011. It has been serv­ing the island at dif­fer­ent Fri­day Har­bor loca­tions for over 30 years. They have expand­ed the office sup­ply busi­ness, adding bal­loons, par­ty sup­plies, pro­fes­sion­al artist sup­plies, children’s edu­ca­tion­al crafts and toys, and jan­i­to­r­i­al paper and clean­ing prod­ucts for busi­ness­es and restau­rants. Here’s what they have to say:

“Our par­ty sup­plies include a large selec­tion of mylar and latex bal­loons, paper plates, cups, plas­tic ware, ban­ners, stream­ers and all your needs for grad­u­a­tion, birth­day, spe­cial hol­i­day par­ties and sum­mer picnics.”

In our art depart­ment we have brought in pro­fes­sion­al lines of paints and brush­es. These include Daniel Smith water col­ors, Gold­en heavy body acrylics, Gam­blin oils, Liq­ui­tex heavy body acrylics, Hol­bein water-sol­u­ble oils and Prince­ton brush­es. We also car­ry Gold­en High Flow acrylics which are great for use with air brushes.

In addi­tion to our large selec­tion of pads, jour­nals and can­vas­es, we stock hot and cold press water­col­or paper, mat­te board, illus­tra­tion board and ges­sobord, clay­bord and encaus­tic bord by Amper­sand. Last year we intro­duced R&F oil stick sets. New this year is our large selec­tion of adult col­or­ing books which are great gifts and amaz­ing for relax­ing at home or while traveling.

In the chil­dren’s depart­ment there is a won­der­ful selec­tion of Melis­sa and Doug art and craft prod­ucts com­bined with games, origa­mi, fun looms, books and a large selec­tion of stick­er books.

We car­ry a broad line of “Jan-San” prod­ucts for busi­ness­es and restau­rants. This includes paper tow­els, bath­room tis­sue, hot and cold cups, take-out box­es, soaps and dis­pensers, mops, buck­ets and more.

Last year we expand­ed our retail floor space so that we can bet­ter dis­play our office fur­ni­ture. We have a great selec­tion of office chairs. We also have on dis­play sev­er­al lines of office fur­ni­ture which includes Office Star Prod­ucts Napa and Sono­ma brands. Napa are wood grain lam­i­nate prod­ucts (desks, book­cas­es and cre­den­zas) and Sono­ma are the same prod­ucts in a beau­ti­ful wood veneer. Come in and have a look.

We are told we have the best greet­ing card selec­tion in the San Juans which includes local artist’s cards. Come in and check out some of our fun books, choco­late, gifts, and gift wrap/bags.

Our hours are Mon­day thru Fri­day 9:30–5:30. Sat­ur­day 10–4. Thank you for shop­ping local­ly. We appre­ci­ate your busi­ness and are hap­py to be of ser­vice to you. If we don’t have things in stock that you need, we are hap­py to “spe­cial order” it for you at no addi­tion­al fee.
