Have some holiday angst you need to work out?  Don’t feel like fighting throngs of rabid shoppers at big box stores on Black Friday?  Need to entertain visiting family and friends the day after Thanksgiving?  Wanna hang out and throw some breakables for a great cause?


Join us Friday, November 23rd at The Scrap Exchange (2050 Chapel Hill Road, Durham) from 3-7 PM
and help support the largest non-profit creative reuse center in the country. There will be:

music | fire pits | food | beverages | plus new non-breakable activities for little ones

but most of all……. SMASHING STUFF

Admission is FREE and open to the public (smashables and food are for sale). To avoid long lines in our stores and increase the FUN factor, we will sell smash tickets outdoors and the breakables will be located next to our new SmashZone. You can purchase tickets one-at-a-time or a-hundred-at-a-time depending on your mood (it will be post-election after all).
