April is our birthday month here at The Scrap Exchange and of course this is the month the world celebrates Earth Day as well, so there are lots of things going on around here. We turn 23 this year, and are thrilled to be in our 20’s — so young, so fresh, and still so much ahead of us!
Come on out and join us for some celebratory festivities…
Customer Appreciation Week runs from Sunday 4/13 through Saturday 4/19 — we can’t get enough of ways to let you know how much you are appreciated! Deep discounts on merchandise, complimentary refreshments, fun giveaways, and lotsa love from all of us here at The Scrap Exchange. (Please note that the store will be closed on Easter Sunday 4/20.)
The Friends and Family Show is our featured exhibit in April. Have you ever had your work displayed in an art gallery? Do you make art from reusable materials, or that has an environmental component? Bring us your work for our annual Friends and Family exhibition — all art mediums are encouraged … digital, paintings, sculpture, functional pieces (furniture, etc.), abstract, conceptual … you name it, we’ll take it.
And then come to the Artist’s Reception and Birthday Party on Third Friday, April 18 from 6 to 9 p.m. Birthday cake, snacks, art, and live music by Tiny House! And there are lots of other openings in our neighborhood, both in the building we are in and across the way at Golden Belt, and throughout Downtown Durham.
We’ve also finalized the date we are moving to our new location at the Shoppes at Lakewood. (Does everyone know that we bought the former Lakewood Theater/Duke Surplus building in December 2013 and will be moving our operations there? We did and we are. Please help spread the word!)
Drum roll please… We will move (and be closed to the public) from August 11 through August 15 and will re-open for business at 2050 Chapel Hill Road in Durham (the official street address of the new location) on Saturday, August 16 at 10 a.m.
It feels good to have a plan, and we are excited about our future!
With gratitude ~
