CRAFTY MERAKI

Many of today’s products are from a newer-to-me store called Crafty Meraki. I have been very impressed by the owner’s kindness and was happy to use a few of their products. They carry many of our favorite brands of stamps… and have their own exclusive collection.

Crafty Meraki offers FREE US shipping on orders of 50+… and a flat $5 US shipping cost on orders less than $50.

Thanks for visiting!
