Welcome to our Scrapstore full of art supplies and craft supplies

Rolls of fabric


NEWSFLASH: The Scrapstore is closed for two weeks from Monday November 8 due to unforeseen circumstances. The Scrapstore will open again on Monday November 22. Apologies to anyone who was planning to visit.

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.
