Pittsburgh Center for Creative Reuse is a non-profit that inspires creativity, conservation, and community engagement through reuse.

We operate a non-traditional art supply shop located at the intersection of Wilkinsburg, Homewood, and Point Breeze, where people can donate used art and craft supplies, as well as shop for these unique items all in the same location. We also facilitate hands-on creative programming that educates the public about the benefits of reuse for the environment, community, and self.

We see reuse as a vehicle for boosting self-confidence, learning new skills, and creating opportunity for all.

General Policy: No sexism. No racism. No ableism. No homophobia. No transphobia. No hate. We believe that everyone deserves to be supported, respected, and safe. 

Accessibility: We’re here for you! We are committed to your comfort and full enjoyment of our space. Please contact us if you have questions or requests at shop@pccr.org.

Donations: Have arts and crafts supplies to donate? You’ll find information about donations here. You can review our list of acceptable materials here.
