Craft Story Cebu: The Home for Cebuano Creatives
The "creative world" has marvelously grown so much bigger these days. The world has been filled with gifted, very talented, and imaginative artists. And if you're one of them, I'm pretty sure that you'll be happy to know that finally, a concept store where artists and crafters can showcase their works has opened here in Cebu. Arts and crafts enthusiasts will surely be ecstatic about it too because they now have a place to go to buy their creative materials. Located at Crossroads in Banilad, Craft Story Cebu, opened its doors to the public on November 2018 and it is the first concept store in the Queen City dedicated to promoting and selling works of Cebuano artists and crafters.

I'm not the creative or artsy type person and I was honestly happy that aside from arts and crafts materials, they have handcrafted artisan soaps, shampoo bars, handmade accessories, linen sprays, scents, and handmade native bags too.

But wait, there's more! Aside from these, they also have locally sourced coffee beans, gummy treats, and condiments. If you have been following me on Instagram (follow me @offdutymama if you haven't yet!), you may have noticed that I've been raving about this barbecue sauce from Spread and Co. (see photo above). During the media event, the beautiful couple (I was not able to take their names) behind Spread and Co. prepared some chicken wings that we had to pair with any of their sauces. I tried both the original and spicy variants and I was hooked that after finishing my chicken wings, I went back inside the store and grabbed a bottle of the Spicy Barbecue Sauce since I love a mild sting in my food. I had Zayn try it and he loved it too! Their sauces are to die for.
