2. BeeHappy– This store offers a wide range of supplies that are both imported and local. Most of the unique products that you see on Pinterest and Etsy can be found here. If you love clear stamps, shaped cutters, raw materials for packaging, etc. then this is a great online store to shop. If you are outside Manila and want faster delivery, you may want to request for LBC instead of Xend. Based on experience, LBC comes way faster- like one day from shipping date, compared to others which takes 3 days, especially when you are outside Manila.

It’s a really great store where you can find unique items. Unfortunately, I had (or they had) a problem with communication.  I got late or no replies in some of my messages. I would just like to assume that my case was an isolated one and that they really reply to customers because they really have great products and I felt bad that I wasn’t able to get them before my flight.

5.  Makin’s Clay Philippines – Makin’s focuses on air dry polymer clay & tools. I find some of the prices more expensive, but maybe because they really have unique designs.

8. Folsom Arts – There are so many things to love about Folsom Arts, but the main one is service. They really serve their customers well by making sure the best option is given to them during transactions. This store offers great products for those who want to start their own printing and publishing business. These are some of the products they sell. Screen Shot 2016-06-09 at 2.17.36 PM Screen Shot 2016-06-09 at 2.17.57 PM Screen Shot 2016-06-09 at 2.18.22 PM Screen Shot 2016-06-17 at 9.43.24 AM

What I love about these craft suppliers/stores is that most of them were started by women, by moms specifically.  Their stories and dedication on balancing family and business life can be very inspiring. I remember these lines from Proverbs about excellent women:

The Woman Who Fears the Lord
An excellent wife who can find?

She is far more precious than jewels.
The heart of her husband trusts in her,
and he will have no lack of gain.
She does him good, and not harm,
all the days of her life.

She seeks wool and flax,
and works with willing hands.

She is like the ships of the merchant;
she brings her food from afar.

She rises while it is yet night
and provides food for her household
and portions for her maidens.

She considers a field and buys it;
with the fruit of her hands she plants a vineyard.

She dresses herself with strength
and makes her arms strong.

She perceives that her merchandise is profitable.
Her lamp does not go out at night.
She puts her hands to the distaff,
and her hands hold the spindle.

She opens her hand to the poor
and reaches out her hands to the needy.

She is not afraid of snow for her household,
for all her household are clothed in scarlet.

She makes bed coverings for herself;
her clothing is fine linen and purple.

Her husband is known in the gates
when he sits among the elders of the land.

She makes linen garments and sells them;
she delivers sashes to the merchant.

Strength and dignity are her clothing,
and she laughs at the time to come.

She opens her mouth with wisdom,
and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue.

She looks well to the ways of her household
and does not eat the bread of idleness.

Her children rise up and call her blessed;
her husband also, and he praises her:
“Many women have done excellently,
but you surpass them all.”

Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain,
but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
Give her of the fruit of her hands,
and let her works praise her in the gates.

  1. I’m familiar with #1 and 2, I bought some stamp pads in Craft Central. Last year, I also checked BeeHappy site because I was looking for stamps that I can give to teachers kaso sold out naman. Thank you for sharing other art and crafts store. 🙂

  2. I love arts and crafts!!! Thank you thank you for this. I actually don’t buy arts and crafts tools online because I have trust issues! Kidding! There was one time kasi I bought certain yards of ribbon and when I got it, they stapled it just so it would be equivalent to the yards I asked for. 🙁

    And I also like to feel or see the product if I’m going to buy it, IDK that’s just how I am. I could actually spend a whole day at National Bookstore looking and browsing all the books, pens, and even scissors, no kidding. And yes, that’s the only store I go to whenever I need something for my DIY stuff, I know some stores but it’s quite far from where I live. I think I might try buying online again! 🙂

    1. Same here. I can stay in the bookstore for hours. =) There are items that I don’t buy online for the same reason that I really want to feel them. That’s why I try to include at least one sample along with the other items I buy, just so I could see them, then order from then on. =)

  3. I’m a late bloomer in arts and crafts but I remember the crafts store in SM Southmall. By the time I was interested in scrapbooking, it was gone. Sad. Thanks for this list. Will check them out.

  4. I stumbled once in Craft Central’s website when I was looking for calligraphy brushes. I haven’t tried ordering though. It’s good that there are other stores online. I’ll go check them and might consider ordering. Thanks for sharing!

  5. Thank you for the list. I am not into arts everyday but now I feel i need to start a project to keep myself busy. The boys are now at school and the silence inside the house is just deafening. I need something to make myself productive aside from household chores and cooking and blogging.

  6. Wonderful list! I have to admit I’m a bit surprised though that my favorite craft store isn’t up there. Have you heard of Heykessy.com? They have great workshops too. Anyway maybe another craft shop to add to the list. 🙂

  7. I love making art and craft projects! Thanks for blogging about these shops! Big help for people like me. 🙂

    I love that you added something about these shops being started by women and reminding us taht they are like the Proverbs 31 woman. She’s also one of my idols. 😉

  8. I’ve tried #1 at Shangrila Mall. My eldest was so happy to find the eraser she wanted and cost way cheaper than in other stores. It was a different eraser than those we normally use. Thanks for sharing the list!😊

  9. Arts and crafts used to be my favorite thing to do but I just don’t have the time to sit down and get to it. So I have several projects midway that I’ve been dying to work on. I’ve been seeing these craft stores and would love to check them out!

  10. Ahhh, bookmarking this! I love crafts and running a DIY party myself, I often get asked where are the best places to shop for craft supplies online! Thank you for putting this together! : )

  11. I am not really into arts and crafts but I do know people who love them a lot. I will definitely recommend these shops to them. Thanks for sharing!

  12. I stalk some of these stores on Instagram. Haha! Looking at all the crafting stuff makes me happy. 🙂 I’m not really that much into clay though and I can see you’ve included some clay stores here. Might as well check them out coz my son loves clay.

  13. If you love doing arts and crafts and are near our house in Quezon City, I just know that our residents would love to learn some crafting skills from you!! Thank you for reading about the Servants of Charity and following our newsblog.

    1. Wow. That would be great. I’d love to share any skill I know to them. 🙂 I’ll contact you once I’m near your place or even set a schedule. 🙂

  14. Do you know any crafts store that sells paper for paper flower making? I’m into paper flower making right now and it’s so hard to find the color and paper texture that i want. Please help..!!
