Welcome to our Scrapstore full of art supplies and craft supplies



January closing dates

The Scrapstore and the rest of Crow will be closed for staff and volunteer training on Monday January 10, Tuesday January 11 and Wednesday January 12. Crow will be open again on  Thursday January 13.  There will be a Saturday opening on January 15 from 10am to 1pm. 

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.
