Out of this world selection and prices! During the holidays it turns into a winter wonderland! Great place to get ribbon (not just during the holidays), bags, dried flowers, fake flowers?the list goes on and on! It's a great place to find all those wonderful accents to make your home or project amazing! Hard place to beat!

My first time experience with Craftex was a very pleasant one. There is a plethora of ribbons, floral, antique books of incredible value, as well as tons of books on any subject to accent any coffee table or fill a gift basket. Baskets are plentiful, etc. The older gentleman, who I assume is the owner was cordial and offered assistance to find anything or answer any question. I highly recommend this place. A decorators and landscapers heaven with sculptures galore.

I have been buying from Craftex since for over 30 years...I love the place, I can always find the things I need for my clients. To the complainers, it is a wholesale establishment, for business owners, and if you do not understand how that operates, you probably do not belong in there even if you posess a tax number. The owner is one of the most knowledgeable resources to this industry?and describing him as cranky or a curmudgeon would probably be an accurate description if you are asking him for the ridiculous or messing with his merchandise. For the most part I find him professional and he likes dealing with professionals. The staff is knowledgeable and is there to assist those who know their business, this is not a craft store to find onesies and twosies. I go in there to purchase items to support the success of my business, not to find someone for a "lovely chat". Best in Houston! Linda Carter, Linda Carter Designs

O.M.G. I could not love this place more! But, before you go, please note the "Wholesale" in their name. That means you need a resale certificate to buy here. However, it doesn't mean you need one to roam the aisles and get inspiration and look at all the pretty things.

There are miles and miles and miles of ribbon, and floral supplies by the ton, and a separate holiday shop that makes me want to swoon.

As far as other reviewers' complaints about customer service, I have had nothing but outstanding customer service from a wide variety of store personnel on every trip.

Ok First of all Craftex sells to the Trade! It is not Macys where you have sales people who work on sales quotas. I have been doing business with Craftex from Day 1. If you are just a lookie lu wanting to buy by the yard or a single piece of a set dont bother! It is not Mikel's or Hoby Loby. Yes the owner is gruff but he knows His stuff!! If you want to make deals he is business man and, a business man who deals to the trade only! There are many people who work there to ask for help. A designer or retailer should know his products and textiles before going into this store. They Sell they do not train or teach you how to do your job! They have kept me in business for years as a local source and I am so grateful for their business being there. This is the Owners baby and he has built it from a very small space with a bare light bulb hanging from the sealing to a wonderfully stocked large business with a large selection of many medias to choose from. Thank you for all of your years of work on the business! Don't know what I would have done with out you as a local source. D Barton

I was surprised to read anything negative. I first discovered Craftex about 8 years ago as it was recommended to me-I put together literally hundreds of client gifts annually and would pick up ribbon, floral, bags, etc. for these gifts or gift baskets. I wouldn't know who the owner is if he walked past me as no one has ever even "bothered me" or confronted me as I shopped. If I ask questions, they are always VERY helpful. And I mean I sometimes spend HOURS looking at ribbon, books, florals while I brainstorm what I want to create. EVERY person I have spoken w/there has always been helpful! They even sing! I am actually going there again today as I am days away from putting together a huge conference and need additional supplies. Great place! Regarding putting the books in the wrong place...they have a ZILLION books and they are all neatly displayed/organized. I'd get upset too if someone messed it up. Be courteous and others will respond the same. As far as being in the wrong neighborhood, face it, no matter where you live in Houston, things can happen. Doesn't scare me a bit - I am a woman and ALWAYS drive and shop there alone and have NEVER been scared.

I have been shopping at Craftex for over two decades. As with most people, what you give is what you get--I would hate it if people were messing up my store and asking for "one more" of an item that has come pre-packaged (I can always use another feather--now or later). I recently broke a glass candle holder on an outdoor chandelier. I asked my stained glass distributor for a suitable replacement--it would have cost $30; he suggested Craftex ("Of Course!" I said). I found a beautiful replacement for $4, so I replaced them all! I've always been nice, and have had the courtesy returned! The holiday shop is awsome. I LOVE that place--I wish they'd sell it to me!

My experience there was very unpleasant. The Owner was a rude old fart, The man slammed a book on the floor because someone placed it in the wrong place.

I have bought alot of stuff from them. specially during holidays. I don't think that they are rude people. What I have notice is, if you are in that kind of bussiness you don't have time to do alot of socializing. I don't think they mean to be rude. It is a busy place. They try really hard to do the best for everyone. Now, I alot of snob Designers and Bussiness owners are just to Bitchy. Sorry to say......But, its the truth....I don't really care for what people say about them, They are very hard working people. IT'S A VERY GOOD RESOURCE.

The owner was very rude to a friend and me. We were looking at ribbon and he said in a very confrontational way "Does your mother work here?" Uhhhhh no....she is dead my friend said. "He said - I don't care - if your mother isn't here, they you need to put things back where you found them!"
My friend told him to go to hell and we left. He is something. He is very mean to his employees. Very dangerous party of town. Last time I went 4 cops were in the parking lot.

Craftex is an incredible resource for Houston, and indeed, Texas. I live in Dallas and work in Houston often, and always shop at Craftex. It is such a great resource that it is worth the drive to Houston to shop there, even from my home in Dallas. They are a wholesale operation, and you must open an account to shop there, but that's how the business works! And maybe the customer who needed one feather should shop for that feather elsewhere, Craftex is not the best place to shop for those small single items. Addtionally, it should be noted that Craftex has one of the best selections of recent fabulous art and fashion books, as well as a mind-boggling selection of any kind of interior, garden, cooking, and many more types of books. The books alone are worth the trip. AND THEY ARE CHEAP!!!
ALSO: The BEST Holiday shop in the the southwest! (Open seasonally, I believe.)

Crafttex is a unique and fabulous store with an eclectic arrangement of items including books, candles, superior silk flowers, ribbon, garden sculptures, pots, fountains, the most incredible Christmas decorations and displays. Everything in the store is sensational. The service is superlative, the staff is excellent in their knowledge of all the items. You will find what ever you are looking for here, and if not they will tell you where you can get it! I look forward to each and every visit. The only problem with this store is I want to purchase everything in it! Michele Rogers, My Jewelry Box Inc

I think Craftex Wholesale should change their name to Wholesale Joke Distributor. My experience with Craftex was demeaning. I am very outraged about the so-call customer service. I needed an additional feather to complete a floral arrangement for a client. The employee told me, "Do you think I will sell an additional feather to you, I pay people to make these arrangements". Keep in mind there are massive floral arrangements throughout this warehouse with an abundance of feathers in the arrangements. I called back and spoke to another employee as was informed, "Maybe you should shop at Walmart".

I have been shopping at Craftex for years and have noticed several unusual things going at the shop. The owner is very strange and treats the Mexican young men that work him extremely bad. Then I saw on tv where he was arrested for forcing sex on these young men. It is also found online. This is a terrible person and I can not understand why he is not in jail or out of business.

My wife went to this place with her business associate and she said I had to see this place. They have all sort of craft and decoration items and wholesale rates. They also have a great collection of coffee table books. A definite place to check out.

I went to this place to get some chirstmas decorations and was amazed by the selection of craft and related items they carry. I just love their selection of coffee table books. A wonderful place to shop. Be careful, with what you buy coz they don't accept returns.
