How to see inside art materials / supplies shops

I've just discovered something which allows me to see inside shops which provide art materials, equipment and related supplies - on my own screen!

It's probably been around forever but I've never ever seen it before. I suspect this might be because, this age of ordering online, shops are making greater use of it to market their premises as a "go to" place for art materials, equipment and other supplies.

How to see inside art materials shops

So what you do is 

  1. Go to Google Maps
  2. put the name of the shop into Google Maps 
  3. Click search
  4. Click on the picture of the shop which comes up top left of Google Maps
What happens next is you get to see all photos posted on Google which relate to that shop.
SCORLL DOWN on the left hand column to see all the available photos - and you get a really good idea of the amount and type of art materials available in the shop.
