Village des Valeurs (aka Value Village)
It's a thrift shop selling second hand goods. There is one near Pie IX if you plan on going to the botanical garden you can make a trip there.
2033 Pie IX
Montreal, PQ H1V 9Z7
TEL (514) 528-8604

Here are other locations

L'Oiseau Bleu is my favorite craft store, they have so much stuff in one store. It's amazing...
Soap & candle making supplies, rubber stamping, origami paper, beading, rug hooking, basket weaving, baking supplies. I can spend hours there, and the prices are reasonable. Also near Pie IX

How to get there:

the same bus (it goes along Pie IX) that takes you to L'oiseau bleu passes by village des valeurs, it is a few stops before it.

Omer de Serres is another favorite of mine, they are a franchise art store but they too sell crafting supplies.
They have quite a few locations around the city. I go to the one near St.Catherine/St.Denis (eastern Montreal)

If you have time you should go to Au Papier Japonais
It is my favorite paper place. They sell all kinds of Japanese paper, origami paper and crafts. It's a little place just off of St.Laurent (past Mount Royal on Fairmount.
I can spend hours there and $$$, they have a great range of papers and prices.
They have an online store but it's sooooo much nicer seeing it in person.

Dont' forget the Dollarama's!!!!!!!!!!!!
They are all over the city and a great place to find stuff. I get a lot of my craft supplies there such as glue sticks, marbles to make magnets, storage containers, candles etc....
Just a few locations
On St.Laurent just below Duluth
St.Catherine just below President Kennedy. (Downtown Montreal near all the major shopping Malls (Eaton Centre and the Bay)

Shopping on St.Denis between Sherbrooke and Mount Royal is a great place to find a few fabric stores and other second hand stores. St.Laurent is the the next street over which is also worth a look at.

I'm gonna be in Montreal for a weekend soon.

I just read the craft and thrift store recommendation in this thread but if anyone feels like recommending any more or perhaps other cool places to shop, eat, sight-see, etc, I'd totally appreciate it!

st hubert street has lots and lots of fabric stores. also a bead store called chaton beads and there are other stores that sell only notions. its way too fun.

St hubert is my favourite Street in Montreal. Lots and lots of fabric stores, from very cheap and retro types to very classy expensive silks in one store where you cannot touch the fabric.  Seriously!! There is also Kava Thread company where you can buy large cones of thread for next to nothing.  I am a quilter and by 100% cotton thread in 10,000 metre cones for $4.00 in white and off white only.  This is not Coats and Clark or Metler quality, but is fine for piecing.  They also have the best pair of small scissors that I have ever owned.  They are about a 3 inch blade with green handles and have very sharp tips and I have been known to use them for a seam ripper when mine is buried.  They  are about $4.00 a pair,  get two, you will love them.  I think I have three now and my daughter Sarah Froggy owns a couple also.  I have sharpened them, and they work great.  The notions store Sarah talks of has windows out to the street and you go up the stairs between the windows.  Their zippers are very cheap, less than 10 cents a inch and they will make the size you need for you.  Lots to see and do in Montreal. If you like Greek food, eat at  la Cabane Greque on Prince arthur street, where all the restaurants are bring you own wine.  In summer the steet is alive with buskers and lots of entertainment.

I'm out in the West Island of Montreal, and even if you don't live in the area it's worth a trip for crafting. There'S a wal-mart, 2 winners, a Villager Des Valeurs... There'S a really good Dollarama (The best I've seen) on the corner of Hymus and St. Charles in Kirkland. In the Pointe Claire Plaza on St.John's there is Ted's Hobby shop, as well As a yarn store (I can't remeber the name)
For Fabric, there'S both Fabricville and Bouclair in Dollard, and if you head down to Pointe Claire Village, you'll find a specialty bead shop, as well as a scrapbooking store.
For thrift shops downtown, walk up and down Mount Royal and you'll find a ton. There's alo Eva B on St Laurent, as well as a few army surplus stores.

I live out in the south shore and have found 1 thrift shop (its not really imprssive  Cry ) And I agree Omer des Serres is a really cool shop (i get all my soap and candle stuff there ) but it can get kinda pricey $$$

I'm a very special little girl...
