New Store Makes Crafting Fun and Affordable

If you are a crafter or need craft supplies for a special project, be sure to visit the Reuse Market. Here you will find a treasure trove of crafting supplies for just about any project. The Market's goal is to keep clean, usable art and craft supplies out of the landfill and place them in the hands of artists, teachers, students and others at a reasonable price.

The Market also accepts donations of items that can be used for crafting, everything from fabric, yarn, paints and paper to more unusual items, such as old maps, patterns, marbles, used greeting cards, seashells, pinecones, silk and plastic flowers and much more. They even accept toilet paper and paper towel cardboard rolls.

If you have a cupboard filled with left over supplies like I do, consider making a tax deductible donation (they are a registered non-profit). Someone will even pick up items if necessary. As I looked through my supplies I found brass curtain rings, picture frames, baskets, felt scraps, artist supplies and much more, all of which will be useful to someone.

The Market is co-located with the Northend Organic Nursery at 3777 W. Chinden Boulevard in Garden City. The staff is entirely volunteer, so hours of operation are limited to Thursday through Saturday, noon to 5 p.m. For more information, visit their website at or visit their Facebook page.
