Luke Randall founded our company twenty-five years ago on his parents from porch, a few months later he moved Endeavours, The Artist Shop to a hole in the wall space in Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada. Back then brands at Endeavours were Winsor & Newton, and Fredrix. Endeavours has moved four times since 1995 and we've added so many lines to our once humble beginnings. And, we now have incorporated toys and games into the mix. Luke started ThinkPlay as a stand-alone store back in 2003 and combined the two brands into a single location a few years later. Today we serve Fredericton, New Brunswick but we ship brands like Gibson's Puzzles, Karin Markers, Kama Oils, Stoneground and Daniel Smith Watercolours all over Canada from Halifax, to Ottawa, to the other coast in British Columbia.
Endeavours, The Artist Shop specializes in artist materials such as Canadian handmade watercolours, drawing sets for the complete beginner and stationary with the perfect fountain pen or journal for any enthusiast .
