Part craft store, part thrift store, part salvage yard and part antique store, our inventory is collected from businesses, institutions and individuals who recognize that their materials are suitable for reuse, repurposing or upcycling. In the right creative hands, many materials can live second or third useful lives.Let's take a gander and see what we can find!
There isn't a whole lot marking the door and it doesn't look like a regular store front. But then again can it really be called a regular store??
Once in, we were welcomed by a sign. There was literally nobody in sight for a good portion of our time in there. Eventually we did see two workers lurking about. I guess when you are selling what they are selling they aren't too terribly worried about theft.
In fact, I saw Johnny Cash, the cat, before I saw any person. (Once I finally saw a person I asked the cat's name, just like you are suppose to.) And yes, those are doll parts for sale.
I saw Shugg as well, but she wasn't still enough to get a photo of her.
There are some i.n.t.e.r.e.s.t.i.n.g. things in this place. Some extremely weird, which I liked!
Take this deer head for example. I don't think it was for sale though.
Then there was this kite and doll combination.
There was "normal" crafty stuff as well, like this alphabet beads.
But then there were some not so normal "crafty" items.
Scratched off lottery tickets, anyone?
Or how about empty toilet paper rolls? (I actually have seen some arts and crafts projects on Pintrest that use these!)
There is actually tons more stuff there, this is just a few and I do mean a few, highlights. If I had a project in mind this would be my go to place, but just like Hobby Lobby, with no project in mind it was just a fun time to browse but I wouldn't go there often.
Of course, if I were as artistic as the person who made this, maybe I would be there all the time!
