The Creative Junk store has so much in it!
People have described our warehouse as a treasure trove of craft materials. We accept all sorts of items from people and businesses in the community and we sell it very cheaply. Come and fill a 34 x 26 x 30cm basket for just $10 (only $7 if you become a member!) There is a lot you can fit into a basket.
Please note, as we are a charity, we need to keep our costs down, so our store accepts cash only (no eftpos).
Our stock changes by the week, depending on what has been donated. We usually have a good amount of paper, boxes, paints, books, plastic containers, bottle tops, fabrics and so on. On the right you can see the kind of things we have in stock, but the best thing to do is to come and see for yourself.
Don’t throw it away – donate it!
In order to operate successfully we rely on our community to supply us with ‘junk’ (such a misleading word!) If you have access to waste materials that you think may be of use, let us know. Basically we are after anything that can be used for creative play or crafts.
If it is non-toxic, clean and safe – we can use it!
Please note that sometimes we are unable to accept certain items due to storage space and other limitations.
