Craft Stores in Metro Vancouver
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.
