Visit the Shop
Visitors to our shop always comment on the huge range of craft books in particular and exclaim that they can't find the equivalent in other book stores. Of course we agree! The shop and warehouse are located at 39 Clifford Street, Huntingdale, Victoria and we are open from 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday and from 10am to 2pm on Saturday.
