Craft Central Now Crafting at GB5!♥

by - September 28, 2016

Being into arts and crafts my whole life, it is evident that I am so into craft stores. I can't get enough of them! Growing up, the closes one to an art store would be bookstores a.k.a. National Bookstore here, so I would always visit. But whenever I'm in Taiwan, I drop by Shih-Lin Night Market or Page One bookstore. :)

Nowadays, there is an abundance of local shops online and offline that sell a lot of art and crafts stuff. One of them is The Craft Central. They started out as a virtual shop that inspired thousands of dreamers to create beautiful crafts. I even remembering ordering a few calligraphy items from them when I was starting with the craft. ^_^  I love their walnut ink! Now, after two years in the making, they finally have a physical store in Greenbelt 5, Makati!

Last September 21, I headed over to the soft opening of their store and I felt like a giddy girl in a toys store! Yes, an art store is pure BLISS for me! ^_^ The store was filled with fellow art-lovers and I wouldn't wonder why, because of all the neat items inside!

Aside from the cool stuff, craft stations were also provided and awesome loot from The Craft Central partners. :)

Shelves filled with wonderful things! I feel so happy! But excuse the corporate attire. =P So not artsy! I had a report in school that day, so I had to be in business ensemble. Gah! >_< I really wanted to go in a laid-back dress or shorts, please! 

Some of the Craft Stations that we got to experience....

Bath Bombs by @soakartisansoap :) You should visit their IG shop for really cute soap design! Of course, they're also available at The Craft Central. :)

 We got our names written in modern calligraphy style on our @Inkscribbler Planner Pad. :)

We also decorated our own tote bags using hand-craved stamps by @Sqooid. :) 

My finished work is the first photo above. But check out the tote bags of my friends, Deo, Alex, Krissy and Karl! ^_^ Artsy!

Got a personalized bracelet done by @bedazzleaccessories. I chose the pink strap and she added an 'A' :) Love it!

To match my lovely bracelet, I also got cutie pair of sculpted hamburger earrings from @pinkopium!  They look real enough to eat! I also love the macaroon! Totally adorable. :)

In the store, here are some of my top picks!

Jurassic Pot! WANT THIS!!! 

BAYMAX themed pens! ^_^

Cute gummy bear stickers from Ink Scribbler! :)

In love with these necklace by Taffy - :)

I wanted to hoard A LOT of stickers, but contained myself haha! >_< I swear, this store is temptation!

More picks below... Ang dami kong top picks! >_< Haha! Whole store na ata!

If you're into fauxbonichi and hobonichi, you can check these notebooks out. :)

Immediately thought of my boys when I saw this! :) They would super love it! Star Wars is their favorite. Love the details of this felt art!

The Craft Central will definitely not be complete without Calligraphy tools!

They have pads, inks, paint, nibs and more. :) If you're just starting with Calligraphy, this is the best place to go to. You'll find everything you need here!

The Craft Central store will now serve as a haven for goods made with passion by a number of talented craft partners and a space to hone skills through workshops. :) 

I truly admire our local artists and it's really nice that there is a store like The Craft Central that houses all their wonderful creations. Not only do they get to share their talents with others, but we also get to keep a little of their creativity through purchasing their works. ♥ ^_^

Had so much fun at their soft opening! Can't wait to go back again. :) Maybe tomorrow! Hihihi!

Everyone is invited to celebrate The Craft Central's grand opening weekend happening this October 1 to 2 - where you can join craft stations, watch demos and bring home lots of freebies! Check out their Instagram account @thecraftcentral and for more updates. :)
