Who We Serve


By shopping and supporting Austin Creative Reuse, educators of all varieties can find great new, almost new and completely unconventional materials to bring into the classroom to make learning fun and spread the concept of reuse.

Artists and Crafters

Those in our community who have a desire to create know that purchasing art and craft supplies can be prohibitively expensive. Austin Creative Reuse offers low cost, high quality materials that can make any project come to life. Whether it’s oil paints, quilting cotton or scrapbook paper, you can find something to inspire your next creative journey.

Students and Kids

For those just getting started in their creative life, Austin Creative Reuse has thousands of items to spark your interest. Austin Creative Reuse is a low cost way to experiment with your newfound desire to create.

Makers, Fixers and Tinkers

We collect both conventional and non-conventional materials from our community which can be used to fix or upcycle just about anything. Our bucket section is full of unusual items worth the search to find just the thing you never knew you were looking for.


Rather reuse than buy new? Our mission is to save wonderfully reusable materials from the landfill. You can bring us your wonderfully reusable materials and go on a hunt for something new to inspire you.


We take in all those leftover and unneeded craft supplies, potential reuse materials, conference materials, display stands, signage, and event swag from businesses that would otherwise end up in the landfill. We give them a second life by helping them find them a new home in the hands of the creative community.
