Established in 2005, Scraptopia began in the small town of Traer, IA. The name changed to Scrapmania in 2007 which it has been ever since. When a local store in Cedar Rapids closed in late 2012, I decided the town still had a need for a local store. I began looking into building in Hiawatha and Cedar Rapids, but never found the perfect location. In the Spring of 2013, I found a couple smaller shops in little towns closing, so I bought their fixtures and inventory.
