Where Every Day is a Canvas

Since our family bought our first store on Pacific Avenue way back in 1949, we’ve made our creativity and our customers the backbone of our business. The Trowbridge brothers, Frank, Roy and Gary, and their families kept the Palace spirit going with that same level of dedication to the Santa Cruz arts community until 2021 when they decided to pass the torch to a new Santa Cruz Family. In November, 2021, Charles Maier with his wife Al-lee Gottlieb, and their four children, took ownership and continue the Trowbridge Family legacy today.

Our family of artists and staff members is a friendly and knowledgeable bunch, ready to introduce you to the right supplies for your next project. With our ongoing art shows, classes and demos, there’s always something new to experience at Palace.

Visit our store in Capitola to find an extensive selection of art, school and office supplies, as well as specialty items including gifts, cards, frames, journals and more. Stop by today and stock up on everything you need to bring your ideas to life.
