Welcome to Who Gives a SCRAP Creative Reuse Center
Thank you so much for the outpouring of support through your willingness to volunteer, to shop our stores and finally through all of your donations. Our success is due to you! We have a favor to ask. When donating items, we remind you to please only donate during our hours of operation (go to our store locations and hours tab at the top of the page) We would appreciate that you do not leave unattended items at our front of door. We could be ticketed for littering, blocking pathways and entrances to other storefronts which is against the fire code. If unsure about making a donation please call us. THANK YOU!
Jayne, Lorrie and Carly
Who Gives a SCRAP is proud to be included in the 2016 Pikes Peak Regional Sustainability Report in the Materials Management Achievement Section for reduction in solid waste sent to the landfill. Check out the report here.
Who Gives a SCRAP Creative Reuse Center is now open at three locations - the Ivywild School and in Old Colorado City in Colorado Springs and our Fort Collins shop is now open! Please visit one or all of our locations. For more information about our store locations and hours click here.
Who Gives a SCRAP is an eclectic scrap store that carries an impressive mix of vintage and up-cycled materials. We carry everything from scrapbooking paper to game pieces, used books and sewing patterns, the variety is a crafters dream.
Who Gives a SCRAP believes that the reuse of goods and materials is the most efficient, environmentally friendly and economically viable way to reduce the waste stream. Our shop is open to the public and our ever changing inventory is based on business and individual donations.
Many teachers are responsible for buying their own supplies for their students and their classrooms and can spend upwards of $500. Who Gives a SCRAP is here to help reduce the expense by offering low-cost options. If you are a hobbyist or artist looking for inexpensive supplies, Who Gives a SCRAP is here to help.
If visiting Fort Collins, follow the Resale Trail - A Self-Guided Tour of local resale shops.
