Run by Experienced Crafters

Here at the Creative Craft Centre we care about our renters.  We ourselves are crafters and sell our goods in our shop too.  We wanted to share our experiences and expertise with you and help you to succeed in the world of selling your passion too.  We always look after your goods like they are our own and display them to the best of our ability.  We don't charge high rents, commission or have tie in periods because we've been there, done that and bought the t-shirt and know it can be hard to start a new craft business.  We want to help you start making that dream a little bit easier and make a real go of it.  We really do care about our renters!
