8 Unique Finds at The Craft Central Physical Store!

Saturday, September 24, 2016

Are you one of those people who finds joy in visiting craft stores for no reason? (I'm so guilty of these lol) I can remember back in high school when I'll make it a point to drop by papemelroti just to check if they have new stocks of memo pads and what nots.


Lately, lots of instagram craft stores have been established and we had constant access to the most beautiful washi tapes and stationaries. Now, one of them steps up their game as they open their first ever boutique shop: The Craft Central.

After two years in the making, they've finally opened their doors to arts and crafts enthusiasts in Greenbelt 5, Makati City.

Lucky enough to be granted access during The Craft Central's exclusive PR launch, I've rounded up 8 unique finds to look forward at The Craft Central store:

Pintura & Co.'s Handpainted Canvass Tote Bags


The Lifestyle Wanderer - The Craft Central - 1st store -3

From their bio that says, hand-painted bags + artsy stuff made with love, Pintura & Co. is a startup brand that banks on handpainted totes, bags and the likes. Like me, you'll definitely binge-scroll over their colorful instagram feed / catalogue.

The Heist Club's crime fiction books

#HeistClub Authors PH is a group of writers/authors that aims to uplift crime literature here in the Philippines. When they started last year, they were challenge to write tales of crime and mischief, fear and suspicion, dark alleys and dark souls. 

With the help of Mina V. Esguerra as their facilitator, they were able to produce 16 English crime fiction stories. In other news, these titles are also available at The Craft Central! :)

Wooden Crafts from PS Craft with Soul

Didn't get a chance to score their goodies during Republokal (written about them as one of the brands to look forward at Republokal, read more here), that's why I made sure to get something from their pool of wooden crafts this time. <3 

Each designs from PS Craft with Soul comes in a unique pattern. Their products are also insta-worthy that your "girl friends" or girlfriends will definitely swoon at. 

Artisan Bath Bombs from Soak Artisan Soap
