The Crafters Den
In January 2007, we started out as Gadgets Arts & Crafts, selling a small range of arts, crafts and haberdashery products.
In 2008 we moved into larger premises, expanding our range of products.
At the beginning of 2010, needing more space for all our products, we split the shop into haberdashery and wool on the one hand and the arts and crafts into another location.
Exciting news is that in February 2011 we will once again have all our products under one roof having purchased our own building in Edenvale. We will continue to retail all our products at the Crafters Den, 37 Voortrekker Avenue.
The Craft Connexion
At the Craft Connexion we import and distribute two products which are geared towards children.
Perler Beads are plastic beads which are placed on a shaped pegboard in all sorts of designs. These are then ironed on both sides fusing the plastic beads into a solid shape. They can be displayed as pictures or as mobiles or toys for the children to play with.
Shrinkles are pictures that are coloured in on a plastic backing. They are then put in an oven to shrink 7 times smaller and 7 times thicker. These can then be used as keyrings, pencil toppers, jewellery, and buttons or displayed as pictures.
