Welcome to Scraporium, home of Tampa’s first scrapbooking specialty store. We opened our doors November 1998 and have since been supplying Tampa scrapbookers with all their scrapbooking needs, one embellishment at a time.
Denise Hopkinson started her small scrapbooking store in 1998 when scrapbooking was just starting to take off. Life was great in the small 800 square foot shop where Mrs. Grossman and Frances Meyer reigned queens and the toughest option was whether to get an 8 1/2x11 or 12x12 album.
We quickly grew out of that space and moved further down Florida Ave to a larger spot with lots of shopping space, a large crop room, and a huge kid’s play area. Scrapbooking was the number one hobby in America, business was great, and classes were plenty. The store continued to grow and scrapbooking simply exploded!
Denise decided to take her dream further by purchasing a small strip mall down the street from her current location to house her popular scrapbook shop. By January 2003, the shop was moved to the new location and we’ve been there ever since.
