Pittsburgh Center for Creative Reuse offers a wide array of affordable materials for sale in our non-profit retail shop.

Everyone is welcome in our shop, where you’ll find all kinds of interesting materials like art and craft supplies, fabric, yarn, picture frames, beads, office supplies, artwork, paper, design samples, and various odds and ends. Our inventory is based on business and individual donations, so it changes every day.

While you’re here, stop in our Maker Mill, where we will either have materials and instructions for a creative reuse project, or the tools and the space to create whatever you’d like.  If you are a group, please email us at shop@pccr.org to inquire about space rentals (fees apply).

Also, be sure to check out the many project ideas posted around the shop. They show several examples of reuse projects that can be made with the materials they’re posted next to – what a great way to get inspiration as you shop!

Our Bulk Section is a unique part of our shop where you can fill up a small, medium, or large bag with all kinds of interesting materials for just $2, $5, or $8. Popular with teachers, families, and creative people, our Bulk Section is one of most cost effective ways to get large quantities of materials for your creative projects.

The shop is open to the public every day from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Please stop by to check out what’s new and tell us what you’re making. Photographs of recent additions and customer projects are frequently posted on our Facebook page.


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