Located upstairs at The Trading Post, Port Solent is a jewel of a shop: The Stash.

‘The Stash’ is a delightful den of creative and crafty things. Visitors can find a wide variety of goods for their everyday core crafting needs ranging from decoupage, to crochet, to scrapbook albums. There is something on offer for all ages and abilities along with help, advice and friendly service.

The Internet has really opened up the world of crafting be it for buying, instruction or inspiration, but I still believe that for most individual crafters, there is still great pleasure to had in browsing a well-stocked craft shop and being able to discuss your projects with a friendly face.

My dream was to create a friendly, inspiring location offering a competitively priced range of craft products from some of the major suppliers; all tied together with exceptional customer service. With this in mind I left my job, found the perfect location and opened the door of The Stash on 6 October 2013. We are all busy so the most valuable gift you can give anyone is your time, using your time to make that special something for someone speaks volumes in my opinion.

The Stash at Port Solent also offers a selection of workshops throughout the year and the shop is conveniently open 6 days a week. Gift vouchers are also available as the perfect present for any keen crafter.

I hope to see you soon, in the meantime happy crafting!
