If you are an artist or educator … 

You will continue to visit our current location for our famous blue barrel section, Make N Take room and Design Center. PLUS, we are adding an expanded selection of bulk by-the-pound materials to spark you and your students’ creative imaginations. Future plans for this space also include artist studios, maker spaces and an artist marketplace. In addition, the Cameron Gallery will also remain in this space, providing year-round opportunities for reuse artists to share their work with the community. 

What you can find in the Scrap Shop

If you are a thrift store enthusiast 

Our new store, Scrap Thrift, will quickly become your #1 destination for incredible bargains on a huge selection of clothing, shoes accessories, housewares, fabric & craft supplies and more.  Located adjacent to our current location with 18,000 square feet of newly renovated space, finding affordable treasures will be easier than ever before. And unlike other thrift stores, all proceeds are funneled back into our programs supporting our mission to promote creativity, environmental awareness, and community through reuse. If you care about the arts, education and the health of our planet, you can feel good about every purchase or donation you make.  

In addition, our new donation drop-off location will make donating your gently-used items more convenient and efficient. We’ve added a covered entrance and curb-side assistance to get you back on your way sooner. But we hope you’ll stay and visit one of our stores, take a class or explore the rest of the Reuse Arts District as it grows!
