Question Scrapbooking stores in Vancouver, BC area

I'm traveling to Vancouver, BC with my neice for her first trip north of the border and want to visit some scrapbooking/craft stores in that area. Any suggestions will be appreciated. I love to shop for inspiration and getting unique items is a real plus. Thanks for you help!

Depending where in Vancouver you are going, there are a few fun places to browse.
In Langley, Richmond, and Coquitlam, there is a store called Clipper Street (www.clipperstreet.com)
In Langley as well is Precious Memories, and it's huge. (www.myscrapbookshop.com)
In Vancouver, on Granville Island is a fun rubber stamp shop called I'm Impressed (www.imimpressed.com)
In Maple Ridge is Photo Express (www.pephotos.ca)
In Coquitlam is Remember Me (they don't have web page that I know of; they are located at #107- 250 Schoolhouse St, not terribly far from the Clipper Street)
There is a store in Vancouver called Scrapbook Warehouse (www.scrapbookwarehouse.com)
Have fun!

Default Vancouver shops

I visited http://www.myscrapbookshop.com/ this past summer and loved it. I wish they were closed to Saskatchewan, Canada.
I'm not from B.C but they have some wonderful shops. This one is in Langley but its not far from Vancouver. You hardly know you are out of Vancouver, its a subsurb. Enjoy and have a great trip.

i second my scrapbook shop aka. precious memories has awesome selection and great prices i go their occasionally its 45-1hr drive out of vancouver that to me is the best one...
scrapbook warehouse is a good store the prices are great and always getting new things making memories with scrapbooking is another one, but they are pricy and dont get too much new selection in. im impressed has a great selection of rubber stamps but dont get the punches is way way more money and tools are way more money than other places.. its in granville island which is a nice touristy area

Photo Express and Clipper street are places I MUST stop by anytime I go back to the mainland to visit! I need to try check Precious Memories next time though....that sounds like a great one!

There is a Clipper Street Scrapbooking store in Langley (Not very far from Precious Memories) and it is just a tad bit larger than the one in Coquitlam. It would also make the trip out to Langley a little more worth your while as you could go to both stores in one trip.

There are Michael's here but if you are coming from south of the border I wouldn't bother as our prices are more expensive than Michael's in the US. Same thing as any other store that is also in the US - prices will be more expensive here (it is sad but true)

I will agree with the above poster who said you should try and get to Paper-Ya on Granville Island. It is filled with fun & unique paper!

Enjoy your trip!

All of the above are pretty good - but as far as I am concerned - your best bet is Country Lane Crafts in Surrey - in the Cloverdale area.

Here is there homepage... http://countrylanebc.com/Home_Page.php

They definitely have the best selection of rubber stamps and at great prices. I have not been to Precious Memories, so I cannot speak for them - but Scrap Book Warehouse and Clipper Street have great paper - but Very very few stamps. I'm Impressed on Granville Island is convenient, and carries a reasonable number of stamps - quite good actually - but not much paper!

Hope that helps!!! My fav ---- for stamps - Country Lane Crafts!

Default I'll second all those

Great ideas in the above threads. I live in Langley and often travel to Maple Ridge to shop at photo express. Very helpful staff and knowldegeable.

Check in with precious memories if you are travelling in March because the store will be closed for 2 days while they move to a larger location. The new location is just behind the current store in an old sofa shop.

Have fun!! you can't go wrong with any of these suggestions.

I'll be looking at Country Lane, as that is a new one to me.

I actually haven't been back since I moved from Coquitlam in 2000. I know it's still open because I did a google search. At the time, it carried a lot of punches, brass stencils, stickers, and papers. I hadn't yet developed my obsession with rubber stamping, and I don't recall whether or not they carried any supplies. The industry has changed so much, I'm sure that they did as well. Have fun!
