- In a small, side road off Essex Road in Islington, stands the mighty flagship Cass Arts Store. This impressive brick building hides a treasure trove of art materials, all on display. There is row after neat row of oil paints, racks of top quality artist pens, jars of pencils and smudgy charcoal sticks. They have wads of thick quality paper, a piles of portfolios and stacks of sketch pads. The bright, spacious interior is spread over three floors and shoppers can browse for inspiration or ask the extremely helpful staff for advice and be pointed to the exact shade of burnt umber they require.
