"Do you have sky blue or lawn green?" a man asked an employee at our pick for best art supplies, while pointing at a large case of spray-paint cans with extra-tiny font. The salesperson promptly produced both colors. That's what we love about Utrecht Art Supplies: Hit its employees with any question, and they'll help you navigate the aisles to find the item you're looking for. And if they don't have it, they'll tell you where to go to buy it. The store stocks a wide selection of supplies for painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpting, and drafting. Even if you're not an artist, you can still find good deals on items like notebooks and pens. In search of a new notepad ourselves, we gave a clerk the following parameters: a non-spiral-bound notebook hinged from the top rather than the left and that fits exactly the width of our hand. The Moleskin pocket-size reporter notebook with lined paper he snagged off the shelf was just what we needed. 237 West 23rd Street, 212-675-8699 (10011); 148 Lafayette Street, 212-431-3864 (10013); 536 Myrtle Avenue, Brooklyn, 718-789-0308 (11205); 111 Fourth Avenue, 212-777-5353 (10003); 21 East 13th Street, 212-924-4136, utrechtart.com (10003)
