THE BRONX - An arts and crafts supply store in Williamsbridge is nearing its first anniversary.

Customers say the Artist & Craftsman Supply shop on White Plains Road is a haven for artists in the borough.

Since it opened, locals say they haven't needed to travel to Westchester or Manhattan for supplies.

Staff members say they're all artists and are passionate about spreading the opportunity for others to create art.

The shop offers classes for children and adults.
