Recently found out about Remainders Creative Reuse. It is a store, makerspace, and classroom. One of the many things that makes this place unique is that everything for sale has been donated and sold for next-to-nothing. Which means lots of bins of fabric scraps and buttons and things to dig through.
It combines several things that our society needs to prioritize: reuse, learning skills, repair, and community. They also give free supplies to educators.
I’ve only known of one other store like this, and it was all paper goods. Sadly, it did not last more than a year or so, but it was in one of those weird locations that always have a high turnover rate.
Haven’t been yet, but eagerly looking forward to it. Have quite a few items that need patches (like my shoes) but don’t have any scrap fabric or anything I could afford to cannibalize.
