Our History
MakeIY.com has been in the craft and party supply business since 1992! We have a great deal of experience and expertise in this field. Family owned, we have faithfully served our loyal customers over the years with a huge selection of products at the lowest prices.

Timeline

1992-2003

Our family opens and operates a A.N.T Crafts in Downtown Los Angeles (4th st. & Los Angeles St.) for over a decade serving our loyal customers in a brick and mortar location.

2003
We launched a campaign to offer our products online. We establish the websites: www.downtowncrafts.com, www.downtowncraftsws.com, www.creative15.com, and www.bbshowers.com. We immediately find a consumer base interested in our products and prices. We experience moderate growth through the beginning of the recessionary period.
2004-2007
For the first time (not the last time), we decide to move from our founding location to a larger location two blocks away on Main St. (in-between 4th street and 5th street). This move was taken in order to better serve our growing customer base. Towards the end of 2007, we outgrow our new location on Main St. and decide to triple our current warehouse space by moving to a new location on Los Angeles St. (Three blocks away from our old Main St. store (in between 6th and 7th street).

2008-2010
We launch our revamped, up-to-date website located at www.lacrafts.com. This is our new flag ship online store offering a huge selection of craft and party supplies at the absolute lowest prices. We expand our workforce, product line and inventory, warehousing space, efficiency, consumer base, and our dominance in our target market. We experience the biggest growth in over two decades of our company history.

2011- 2012
We find that our current www.lacrafts.com website is not offering enough for our customers, we again, decide to rebuild our www.lacrafts.com website to ensure that we offer our customers an easy, informative and helpful shopping experience. We also realize that we have outgrown our Los Angeles St. location and are currently looking to purchase a larger warehouse to triple our current size. Once we have acquired a new warehouse, we will work to provide more products, faster processing and shipping time and more features on our website to help you with all your event needs.

2012-2014
In August of 2012, LACrafts found our new home in Commerce, CA where we purchased a 36,000sf facility to supplement our growth. This current location is about 15 minutes from our former location in Downtown Los Angeles. This is our current base of operations. With this new facility, we have been able to streamline or order picking and packing processes to better serve our wonderful customers. We added 500 new items to our product line and anticipate adding many more. Our move was planned to make us a better company for you and this is our goal each and everyday! Thank you for letting us craft memories with you.

Present
MakeIY.com is our newest website that is dedicated to our English as a primarily language customers. Our LACrafts website was built bilingual. Our MakeIY.com is built in English only.

What We Do
MakeIY.com is in the business of offering quality craft and party supplies at highly competitive prices (when possible, we try to be the price leader - when we cannot, it is usually because we are unwilling to bring in a lower quality item as other competitors may choose to do). We mainly focus on offering craft and party supplies for weddings, quinceaneras, baby showers, baptisms, and communions. We also carry a large array of general crafts.

Mission Statement
MakeIY.com is committed to offering high quality products at competitively low prices. We strive to offer superior customer service under any conditions. Combining our high quality products, low prices, and superior customer service, we hope in turn to build customer loyalty.
