Home > Location and Store Hours

At the core of the Scrap Exchange operation lies two unique retail stores that provide unusual and discounted artistic materials as well as vintage items and other inspirational ware. All donations to the Scrap Exchange are salvaged and processed, giving them a new life and new purpose at the hands of our community members. The sales floors are restocked daily with newly donated items.

Both the Scrap Reuse Arts Shop and Scrap Thrift provide essential outlets for achieving our mission to promote creativity, environmental awareness, and community through reuse. The 700 tons (and growing) of materials we have diverted from landfills find new homes and uses through both these stores. Come in and find your inspiration today!

We are now open on Sundays from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
