Idea Queen is big on bargain shopping. Why pay full price for the “latest and greatest” when “tried and true” is just as cheap? Sure you could visit your local dollar store for quite a few of your crafting supplies, but if you want to get serious, you may have to do some digging online.
We’ve compiled a list of our favorite places to shop for cheap craft supplies online. Each of these stores have excellent ratings, are trusted, and listed for both their prices and selection. Do feel free to comment and add your own to this list!
Probably one of the largest craft supply stores online we’ve ever seen. Doesn’t matter what kind of crafts your in search of, chances are they’ll have it. Everything from scrapbooking to sewing, to casual crafting. There’s some pretty good deals going on here, especially when you take advantage of their bulk offers and clearance items. Since this site is all about the savings, it’s one of the best places for cheap craft supplies online.
Kids craft kits at S&S Worldwide One of our absolute favorite place to find cheap craft supplies online. S&S Worldwide tends to focus on bulk supplies though, but the price per individual item is pretty low. They’ve also got a lot of craft kits for sale, making is a pretty nice site for daycare providers, homeschooling networks, and teachers. Also a great site to hit if you need crafts for a birthday party!
Don’t write this one off as “name brand is higher priced” just yet. We did some digging and found some prices (and really, really cool crafts) are cheaper here than other places. Do some poking around, I bet you’ll be pleasantly surprised at how many cheap craft supplies they have!
You might have to do a little price comparing here, but there were a few items we’ve cross-checked with other sites and found them lower. They also have more “serious” crafting supplies for those involved in big projects or as a business.
Personally I love this site for their fabric prices. About the only place I know to beat them is Walmart, and I despise the cheap fabric there. Joann has the quality AND the great prices, so it’s mostly where my fabric comes from. They have other crafting supplies too, but more so for the serious crafts or adult projects. Kids crafts on this site tend to run a little high.
Now we couldn’t forget Amazon, could we? If your a bargain hunter, you must visit this site. They don’t always have the lowest prices, but a lot of times they do. Plus there’s multiple buying options and supplies, so their prices are hard to beat in many areas.
This list of places to buy cheap craft supplies online should at least get you started. No matter what you need supplies for, you should be able to find them at any of the sites we’ve mentioned!
