Come and visit the shop. You will walk away with a new appreciation for reuse, reduce, recycle, and you might find something that you always wanted. Your purchase will get you what you want, donate directly to charity, and you can drop off donations. Each transaction makes you feel good about donating to a non-profit, reusing the earth’s resources, and finding what you need for a lower price. A win-win situation no matter how you see it!
