Brief History of CardTastic Collectables and Gaming

The year is 1993. A spark ignites in an Australian family – a passion for collecting AFL and trading cards. Little did they know, this passion would one day blossom into CardTastic Collectables and Gaming, a beloved hub for gamers and collectors across the country. It all began humbly, with the family selling surplus items from their collection at stalls at the All Events Victoria Fairs. But soon, the hobby outgrew its initial bounds. Driven by their love for the hobby and a knack for spotting unique finds, the family started incorporating non-collection items into their offerings. Enter the Alien in a bottle from the X-Files, a testament to their willingness to embrace the unusual and exciting.

In 2002, CardTastic took a major leap forward with the opening of its first physical store in Ormond. Trading card games (TCGs) and collectible card games (CCGs) became the focus, with popular titles like Duel Masters and Star Wars Miniatures captivating the imaginations of young and old alike. Beanie Kids, the plush toy phenomenon of the time, also found a happy home on CardTastic's shelves.The Ormond store quickly became a hive of activity. Tournaments for various games, including X-Box tournaments, ran at full throttle, fostering a vibrant community of players and collectors. But as the business thrived, the space limitations of the Ormond store became apparent. In 2008, CardTastic made a big move, relocating to a larger space in Moorabbin.

The Moorabbin store served CardTastic well for six years, but the dream of even greater horizons beckoned. Finally, in 2014, the business found its permanent home in its current Clayton location. This spacious store, with its diverse selection of games, collectibles, and friendly staff, is a testament to the family's unwavering dedication to creating a one-stop shop for all things gaming and collecting. But CardTastic's story wouldn't be complete without mentioning the pivotal role of technology. A new website design by Mantis Technology in 2014 propelled the business into the digital age, opening up CardTastic's treasure trove to a wider audience than ever before. To cater to the growing online demand, an online warehouse location was also established in Clayton South, ensuring efficient order fulfillment and prompt delivery.

 Today, CardTastic Collectables and Gaming remains a true family business, proudly Australian-owned and operated. It has come a long way from its humble beginnings at the All Events Victoria Fairs, transforming into a beloved institution in the Australian gaming and collecting scene. With its commitment to excellent service, diverse product offerings, and vibrant community atmosphere, CardTastic is more than just a store – it's a playground for the imagination, a haven for passionate enthusiasts, and a testament to the enduring power of family, hobby, and a little bit of magic.
