Manny’s Art Supplies on Main Street in New Paltz is one of those quirky, one-of-a-kind businesses that only happen when the same family has been in charge for more than 50 years. The corporate art supply stores may be able to offer more by way of quantity, but Manny’s is that place in the neighborhood where you run in to pick up something basic, like a drawing pencil, and end up walking out half an hour later because you got engrossed in perusing the box of small pieces of handmade papers there, inspired to create something completely different than what you originally planned. And really, how many businesses have a founder like Manny Lipton who can inspire a town-wide celebration like last summer’s third “Mannyfest?”
