“art supply and local music store”

For the last two years, 1301 Main Street has been home to Smartfish Studio & Sustainable Supply, an art supply retail store and footwear studio. On September 8th, 2013, the storefront at 1301 Main Street transitioned into Rock Paper Scissors, expanding upon Smartfish's current offerings while adding a local music component. Rock Paper Scissors has added more locally-made materials to Smartfish’s inventory of sustainable art supplies and offers a more diverse menu of creative in-store workshops. We also sell music releases and merchandise from Cincinnati bands including CDs, tapes, vinyl, posters, tee shirts, and more.  Rock Paper Scissors exists to inspire, inform, equip and expose those navigating the creative sphere. As an organic and accessible resource, RPS will facilitate interactivity among our diverse community, procure economic and social mobility for emerging artists, and profess a do-it-yourself mentality for the sake of invigorating creative potential.

Very cool little art store. A bit pricey but they sell tons of cool notecards and other things made by local artists. If you need basic art supplies you'll likely find them here. If you're looking for unique little gifts for someone, this could also be a cool place to look.

I stop in here often and love chatting with Lindsay about Cincinnati things. There's also a wonderful store dog named Diego. :)

The two owners are true art and music lovers and it shows in the store. The selection is eclectic but slightly limited. Anything they don't have in stock can be ordered for you.

A really cool, unique shop in OTR. That said, it is mostly/only art supplies. Still a really cool gift shop for the person who has everything
