About Us

Pastimes, is a family run, treasure trove of Art and Craft supplies, for the Artist, Crafter and Hobbyist alike. Situated in Tower Street, Kings Lynn, the business has been established for over 40 years. Whilst it may not appear to be too big from the outside, it is a “Tardis” once inside, and you will be amazed at the range of Art, Craft and Hobby products available. Often described by customers as “amazing”, “fascinating” and an “Aladdin’s Cave”. Pastimes is a well presented and spacious shop, with materials and equipment suitable for the enthusiastic amateur to the professional Artist/Crafter. Along with a wealth of knowledge and friendly, helpful advice, we feel we offer the whole Arty/Crafty shopping experience.

Within the retail shop floor, we have a purpose built area, ideal for craft classes, demonstrations or general meetings.

Please contact us if you would like to hire, or view, this area of Pastimes.

For an added insight, please take a browse through the shop on our Google Virtual Tour.
