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!
OUR WEEKLY FRIDAY FEATURE VIDEOS
Each Friday we do a Friday feature video where we upload a video to all our social media sites showing a selection of the new products we have received from our new renter that week, what new products are in the craft shop and tell everyone what we have been up to. They get hundreds of views and are talked about so often. We have visitors come to the shop for the first time just because they have seen our videos and have wanted to see more of the shop and want to buy products they have seen in them. We've become quite famous!
