What people say about us
My absolute favourite place to pick up interesting supplies for crafting. And it’s all things people have gotten rid of so it’s awesome to recycle these unwanted treasures. The staff are all really friendly. It’s an absolute treasure trove.Lydia Woods
I love Creative Junk. It’s got everything we need for school projects, and just for fun. Whenever we go, we find what we need, and get ideas for even more projects.Tim Musson
There are so many resources here! Plenty for creativity through science too. A great place for children to lead their discoveries.C Rooney
My children (6 & 8) love going to Creative Junk. There is such a huge array of things to choose from, you definitely need to go when you have plenty of time to have a good rummage.S Dicksonn
This is a great place for me to personally unclutter my own home as I now know that when I’m looking for just about anything there is a fantastic place to go and at a very reasonable price. It’s well organised and friendly and a pleasure to visit.Jillene England
