My Local Shops I Visit for Crafting Tools and Materials

Regular Shops I visit for non-specific Tools or Materials:
Spotlight - Cardstock, Glues, Stickers, Stamps, Ribbons, etc.
Lincraft - Cardstock, Glues, Stickers, Stamps, Ribbons, etc.
Kmart - Cardstock, Glues, Stickers, Stamps, Ribbons, etc.  Brands include Creative.
Big W - Cardstock, Glues, Stickers, Stamps, Ribbons, etc.
Officeworks - Glues, Tape, Stationery Items and storage items.

For specific Tools and Materials I regularly shop at:
Camelots Studio - Marion Road - This is a great shop, but very unorganised but keeps a huge range of stock.  Is the biggest shop I have seen.  I will warn you that the man in the store is odd!  The lady is very nice and helpful!

Research New Stores
I have been meaning to find out about more craft stores around Adelaide.  So I can check them out.  I like to see what i buy before spending my money!  I know there are alot of stores online, but its what i prefer.

Sab my lovely fiance, took me on Friday to check out a Craft store in Unley called Kaisercraft.  This was a huge store and love the range of products they sell!  Bought a few paper packs, they are beautiful, going to make some great items with these.  Some cute gift boxes and bags i think!!!!!

Also then we continued to search on the weekend, my fiance took me around Adelaide to try and find some more local stores.  

We found Charlottes Webb69 Finniss St, Marion SA 5043.  This was a cute store, not a huge range but a cute store.

We tried Cluttercraft U5/ 91 Research Rd, Pooraka, Adelaide in Pooraka but they didn't look open.... So not sure about them.

I also tried Binalli Crafts 416 Portrush Rd, Linden Park, Adelaide but they seem to not be there.

I welcome people's comments, so please feel free to stop by and leave me comments or ideas, or places to check out and shop at!
