Art supplies, starter kits and a touch of nostalgia

Established in 2017 by Somerville artist, Emily Tirella, Make & Mend was born out of necessity. Make & Mend is a second-hand art and craft supply shop in the heart of Union Square. The goal of this space is to bring gently used art supplies to the community at a reasonable rate. We have everything from high quality yarns to glue sticks to paint brushes to fabric.
Art Supplies are incredibly expensive retail and many area artists and makers are unable to try lots of different mediums and grow their practice because of financial restraints. We just want people to make things, try different mediums and learn from each other.
