Craft Stores In Hong Kong
CN Square is your ultimate one-stop shop for everything from gel pens to fake grass for terrarium modelling. Boasting five spacious floors, housing endless products, this all-encompassing stationery store is sure to have what you’re looking for.
Craft Supplies Store
Craft Supplies Store is quite unassuming from the outside, so unless you go in for a browse you’d never know that in addition to regular craft supplies, it has sewing machines, and sometimes even discounted fabrics. It’s also happy to arrange delivery options for you if you’ve stuffed your shopping bags to their limits, and service is always with a smile.
We didn’t know there was such an extensive range of paper until we visited Paper Art in Central. Since 1994, it has been promoting the appreciation of sustainable paper-related crafting and the art of rubber stamping. For those of us who are into modern calligraphy, this traditional paper store also carries a collection of calligraphy and embossing pens.
We love Artland, which offers all manners of art supplies as well as an overwhelming selection of paint and paper choices. It’s a favourite supplier of art materials for artists, professionals, teachers and students in Hong Kong, and its 4,000-square-foot shop is nicely organised.
AEON Living Plaza (you may remember them as Jusco $10 stores) sells a wide variety of home goods, and you can buy most craft supplies at this chain for just $12. Its flagship in Causeway Bay has a whole aisle dedicated to yarn, and a dizzying array of washi tape. Not only are the prices low, but the quality really isn’t bad either!
Sham Shui Po
Sham Shui Po is a craft-a-holic’s treasure trove. Stalls selling everything you could ever need to make anything you could ever want line the streets of this old but vibrant neighbourhood. Put your bargaining skills to the test on Apliu Street for the best deal on electronics and hardware, then head towards Yu Chau Street for sewing supplies. Round off your crafty shopping trip at the fabric market on Ki Lung Street (Button Street).
