Iron Oxide Art Supplies first opened its doors in January of 2014 in the historic #2 Firehall Building in downtown Nanaimo but its roots go back much further as the proprietor, Willow Friday, opened her first store, House of Indigo Boutique, back in 2002. 

Iron Oxide carries a full spectrum of art supplies, if we don't have it, please ask and we'll likely order it in.
