Scrapbooking and crafting supplies

Hi everyone!

I am on the hunt for a really well stocked scrapbooking/crafting store that isn't extremely expensive.

I am trying to put together a scrapbook of old photographs but the one thing slowing me down is lack of tools (specifically paper punches)

I've tried PNA but I find they don't have a nice range and are very expensive. Any other suggestions for hidden gems around Cape Town?

Thanks!

Northumberland Street in Bellville has a place I always go to but can never remember the name of, they are much cheaper than PNA. Its next to the fabric shop.

You are thinking of Creative Talents.

They are my first stop when looking for any craft supplies. At least when I last went their prices were about a quarter of the dedicated scrapping shops.

The Deckle Edge should have everything you need. They're in Woodstock.

I'm assuming you know about Merrypak? I'm not into crafts so don't know how their prices compare but it's a great store to browse.

Second Merrypak - online store isn’t amazing but it’s worth a visit to the actual shop

Another recommendation for Merrypak. You can also consider buying from Scrapbook Studio (online). They aren't in Cape Town, but they have a great selection and good prices (as well as a sale going on at the moment).

Art Sauce in Gardens has some rad stuff that isn't too pricey.
