CRAFTY ARTS

Tel: 020 7993 5479

Crafty Arts have been trading since 1991 as an art and craft shop.

The very first shop was in Ardleigh Green, we were given the opportunity to have a stall in Lakeside and over the years we found that the need for hobby products was growing.

A few years later we opened a shop on Brentwood High Street, the shop began to do really well, so we decided to expand.

Bluewater Shopping Centre was opening so we took the opportunity to open there and for many years this combination worked really well.

Eight years ago the online side of the business started above the Brentwood shop, this expanded and grew just like the internet and over time we had to find a larger premises; we then moved to a warehouse in Romford.

Two years after we had moved we continued to expand by leasing the warehouse next door and in April 2014 we purchased our first property.

Our core product range has expanded over the years.

We see ourselves as a hobbyist shop, where we sell Art and Craft Materials for adults and children alike, over the years we expanded our range and branched over to puzzles, toys, garden etc.
