looking ahead

On February 19, we celebrated our first year of promoting Creative Reuse in the Hudson Valley! Thanks to our donors, shoppers, volunteers and "cheerleaders" who have been instrumental in our success. We plan to extend our store hours, offer more classes and do more outreach to spread the word about the sustainable practice of Reuse and Repurposing.  Here's to a great year ahead!


The best way to keep informed about what's in the warehouse and shopping hours is to

Less Waste = More Art!

Our warehouse in Peekskill, NY,  is a place to donate, shop and be inspired by an ever-changing inventory of affordable arts and crafts materials. We always have fabric,  notions, yarn, paper, cards, envelopes, markers, crayons, pencils, stencils, stickers, stamps, office supplies and a lot of unexpected things too! Our donations are sourced from a community of eco-conscious people and companies who know the value of their supplies  for Creative Reuse.  Be prepared to spend some time. You never know what you'll find.

DONating supplies

Your generous donations of maker material is what makes our store inventory so unique and affordable.  We want to make the process as easy as possible for everyone.

Drive down the left side of the building to #10. Park right in front and a volunteer will help unload your donation.  We track our positive environmental impact by weighing donations and recording by zipcode.

Please remember: We accept arts and crafts supplies only. Any "pre-sorting" of your donation is greatly appreciated!
