To promote creative reuse, environmental awareness and community by providing affordable, reclaimed art materials



WE WILL BE CLOSED FOR DONATIONS AND SHOPPING FROM 11/20-11/27. Enjoy  your Thanksgiving Holiday.

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.


To reduce waste by offering  a reliable source of gently used art supplies, manufacturing remnants, and upcycled items for artists, teachers, crafters, DIYers, parents, kids  and everyone  who wants to live more sustainably.

To educate the public about the power of Creative Reuse through workshops and classes.


To support our warehouse operation by the sale of donated materials at affordable prices.

choose to reuse

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. 

This summer, we are taking our message of Creative Reuse to the community, sharing information on sustainable consuming practices, and presenting fun ways to do art with affordable materials. Let's reduce the waste of these valuable materials.
