Field trip and guided tour
Guided shop tour with Melissa

We welcome groups of all types for guided tours of our shop. This tour includes information about our history and mission, a short discussion about the importance of reuse, and a tour of our shop and warehouse.

Participants may then spend as much time as they wish exploring our shop.

Group Visit Guidelines 

  • Please introduce yourself at the front desk! This will help our staff know who your group is and who your group leaders are.
  • Group leaders must stay with any children under 12 at all times. Although our space looks fun and creative (and it is!), it can also be very dangerous for unattended children.
  • Please, no running! We don’t want you or anyone else to get hurt.
  • Please keep voices down. We know it’s exciting to be here!
  • If you pick up an item but no longer want it, please put it back where you found it. If you can’t remember, give it to a staff person!
  • Please remember that this is an open-to-the-public-store. Other people are using this space to shop for things they need, too, so please treat this space and everyone in it with respect.
