We are excited to have received funding to promote Creative Reuse at community events in the Hudson Valley. Go to our Events Page to see where we'll be, and stop by to have some crafting fun with supplies from our store. 


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 schedule as many donation days as our process of sorting and organizing will allow, and occasionally must pause your donations.  Thanks for your understanding.

To donate: 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!
