Welcome to our scrapstore full of art supplies and craft supplies

Rolls of fabric


NEWSFLASH: The Scrapstore is now open again on an appointment basis. The Scrapstore is open on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays but not Thursdays or Fridays due to Coronavirus pressures.

The Scrapstore is full of art supplies and craft supplies at low prices.

Once you’ve paid £10 to join as an individual or organisation you can browse two rooms plus part of a warehouse full of bargain art and craft supplies.

Stock is ever changing as organisations donate waste materials and customers snap up bargains.

Examples of typical stock include coloured paper, coloured card, hula hoops, wool, yarn, fabric pieces, fabric by the metre off the roll, tiles and jewellery making supplies.

More information about what’s available is on our Facebook page here.

The Scrapstore is particularly popular with schools, nurseries, childminders and home educators looking for junk modelling materials, items to use in construction areas and resources to improve motor skills.

It’s also popular with parents doing crafts with their children on a budget and art students looking for materials to complete coursework.

We welcome donations of materials suitable for arts and crafts to sell in our Scrapstore. We also welcome donations of books. Art and craft books and selected other books will be put on sale in our Scrapstore. The rest will be sold  in bulk by weight to second hand book dealers. The money from the sales will be used to support Crow’s mission to provide work placements for disabled people.

We are not able to accept electrical items, bric a brac or wood.

The Scrapstore is at Crow Recycling’s base at Orchard House, Sparkbrook Street, Hillfields, Coventry, CV1 5LB.
