An Array of Craft Stores in Metro Vancouver to Tempt the Paper Crafter

Metro Vancouver (formerly known as Great Vancouver) has a wide selection of craft stores that all too often entice the paper crafting enthusiast to reach for the plastic. We have locally owned craft stores, scrapbooking stores, big chain craft stores, specialty paper stores, Dollar Stores and stores selling ephemera and bulk supplies for those interested in altered art, collage and assemblage art.

This lens lists the craft stores that I know about. They're found in Vancouver, North Vancouver, Burnaby, Langley, Maple Ridge, Surrey, Coquitlam, Pitt Meadows, Port Moody, and possibly other locales .

This lens also contains a list of crafting web sites and blogs created by Canadian crafters. If you have an appropriate link, please feel free to add it, or drop me a personal message to tell me about a craft store that I have missed. Much as I try, I can't find them all!

Oh, and you'll also find some of my favorite crafting books available on Amazon.

      Sounds like there's plenty of places in Vancouver to feed a craft addiction ;) I'm planning to visit this Spring. Maybe I'll get a chance to check out one of the stores you've listed.

      Hi, I'm a scrapbooker from Australia, so I am trying to find the scrapbook stores and this has been helpful information, so much appreciated. I think that the address for Photo Express is not the new one since they moved a couple of months ago, near the Value Village shopping centre on 107 street. Also they do not carry much for papercrafting since moving. I did not see DeSerres on the list so I thought I would mention it as they carry papercrafting, art and beading supplies. I have been to their stores in Alberta and I have found 2 stores here in Vancouver on their website.

      Okay, so if I get a passport (didn't used to need one!) and come up your way, you WILL take me on a tour of these fabulous shops, right???!! Nothing like browsing craft supplies with another lover of "stuff" and treasures!!

      Hey - maybe we should organize a Squid crafting group - ooooh - we could mail scrapbooking paper to each other and... Oh, so many ideas!!!
