I absolutely love visiting a craft supplies store out here in the USA. For one thing it kindles my creativity and another, its fun just going over the hordes of stuff that people do and need supplies for. I'm sure most people from India would feel the same way.
I remember when I was in school and needed supplies for a project all I had to do was run to the neighborhood "fancy" store, yeah that's what they were called, atleast in Bangalore, and ask for the specific item I was looking for. If I needed craft paper (or more aptly color paper) there was only 1 kind, at the most 2 and one kind of glue and one kind of card board - K.G card board (if that's the way it is spelt and hmm, I wonder why it was called that).
Every aunty I knew in my neighborhood had an interest in art and craft. My mom knew how to emboss on metal, to sew and knit and my neighbors and family friends could knit, crochet, paint on canvas, on cloth, on ceramics, embroider, whole saris sometimes, make beautiful fake flowers, carve, emboss, make quilts and the list runs on. And to buy supplies for any such thing, right, they just visit the neighborhood fancy store.
So I've often wondered how a craft super store might do in India. Imagine different aisles for different kinds of supplies. An aisle for painting supplies, another for needlework, another for paper crafts and another for floral supplies... Imagine the different kinds of paper and pencils a little kid could buy for her school project and everything at her hand's reach! Imagine stacks of yarn and tonnes of colorful embroidery thread and different kinds of paint and scrap booking supplies. Beads and glues and stencils and paper cutters and craft kits. Imagine wheeling a shopping cart through these aisles and loading it with everything you want. You know I just might open one such store in Bangalore.
