This art and handicraft supplier started
out in a tiny, two-ping shop but currently boasts a
double-sized store. The variety here is huge, arguably
giving it the most complete selection in Taichung. You'll
most likely find anything you can think of here, whether
it's for professional purposes or personal interest.
Shoppers should be thrilled with the variety, from crystal
beads, yarn, clay, ribbons, string, imported gems, sequins
and Chinese ties, to festivity decorations like Chinese
banners and lanterns and Christmas hangings. The crystal
products available here are imported from Austrian company
Swarovski, guaranteed high-quality cutting and color.
Other items include a huge range of paints, paper, wood
or even "feng shui" mirrors. While even the
owners are occasionally at loss to remember everything
they offer, they're more likely to successfully find
what you're looking for on some store shelf.
