Apartments in Tampa are located near all the popular chain stores for crafts, like Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft and Michaels. If you're a knitter, both of these stores carry many different types of yarns, needles, and other knitting supplies. You can also find several crotchet-related items. Are you someone who loves celebrating and crafting for holidays? Jo-Ann's and Michaels always have some great seasonal events and stock throughout the year. I know I have a difficult time not buying out the whole store during Halloween or Christmas! For example, they have some fantastic Halloween fabric during September and October that will help you make the most original and spooky Halloween costume. Your new apartment can be transformed into a great haunted house for parties! Frequent shopper residents will want to download the Jo-Ann's app and sign up for Michaels coupons so you can always grab the best deals available.

In addition to Jo-Ann's and Michaels, Tampa apartments are near other local craft supply shops and craft-related activities. One example is AOE Supply on N 56th Street, an art supply store where you can find artist brushes, paints, frames, paper, and supplies for printmaking. Wouldn't your new apartment look great with some original paintings or drawings on the wall? Along the same line, Tampa's Frames N' Things offers some beautiful frame and mat selections for all your art and decor needs. If you're more of a woodworker or love to construct your own furniture and décor, head over to Craftsmen Supply CO to check out a vast selection of hard to find lumber, plywood, veneer, and woodworking supplies. They also offer custom cutting, planing, and sanding!

Apartments in Tampa are also close to other popular craft supply destinations like Lowe's and Home Depot. If you ever find yourself wondering where to find crating items in certain shapes, sizes, and materials, these two places can sometimes be your best bet for finding the perfect addition to your creation.
