About Us

Eden Art, Book & Craft store front

In August of 2005 we purchased what was then the “Paperweight” franchise in the Mosselbaai Mall in Heiderand Mossel bay. After a year’s trading under that banner, we decided to leave the franchise and rather steer the business in the direction of Christian & Afrikaans literature, Art and Crafts rather than magazines and stationery.

We rebranded the business “Mosselbaai Art, Boek and Craft” - which was more in keeping with our core business and described the business more clearly to. We brought in a large range of beading materials, jigsaw puzzles, craft paints and art supplies notably the Winton© range from Winsor and Newton© as well as a comprehensive range of canvasses and other artists’ supplies.

2 years later we moved to larger premises in the same mall increasing our footprint by 50% and was able to expand into Christian gifts, Sylvanian© families, ribbon, decoupage, fabric painting and card making also increasing our range of Scrapbooking paper, tools and embellishments. We also brought in a comprehensive range of products that could be used by scholars in school projects. We again rebranded to our business to our current trading name “Eden Art, Book and Craft” to more identify with the area we serve daily.

We are constantly increasing and changing our range of products to remain relative in the various markets that we serve and pride ourselves in our friendly and knowledgeable service. Now 10 years later we have relocated to larger premises again increasing the size by another 50% at Bayside Shopping Centre in the Mossel Bay CBD, corner of Bland and Church streets where we have further expanded our offering.
