Find everything you need for your next craft project
A crafter's paradise in the middle of Mt Gravatt's busy strip mall on Logan Road lies hidden to all but those who know of this magical Alladin's Cave of Wonders. Craft Giraffe has been housed inside Photo Continental for years and after a recent makeover and refurbishment, it's even more incredible than ever with rows upon rows of supplies for every kind of craft your heart desires.

Walking through aisles and aisles of amazing jewellery findings, beads and charms, you would think that this is a store for jewellers alone. However, you pass into another section and find yourself among neatly displayed stacks of beautiful scrapbooking papers which number in the hundreds of thousands or perhaps millions. There are stickers, stamps, tapes and all other tools of the trade for scrapbookers, cardmakers and other paper artists and all the books on how to get started or keep going with your projects.

The friendly staff are on hand to help you find just the perfect thing for your project as it could be like finding a needle in a haystack if you don't know where to look. They will even give you some basic understanding of crafts which are new to you so you buy the right tools and materials to get your new project underway.

Craft Giraffe also have a comfortable learning area where you can attend workshops to learn beading techniques or how to make your own cards and papergoods. There are scrapbooking masterclasses and a range of other beginner and advanced workshops to attend and, of course, you can buy more materials on site so you can go home and continue creating.

Visited for the first just before Christmas Kath, on a BrisStyle recommendation - couldn't quite believe it! Totally amazing!

I have been shopping there for years. It is a fantastic shop and the staff are so knowledgeable and helpful. More recently my daughter and I shopped there for her wedding invitations and other supplies for decorating the tables. They have everything, including great ideas. The prices are excellent as well.
