Reclaim: A design sample bonanza!

Expired design samples often get thrown into the landfill when they go out of style – but they have plenty of creative life left in them!

Through our Reclaim events, we collect and process thousands of pounds of samples from local designers and architects, and add in an assortment of other surplus materials like trophy parts, paper, office supplies, odds and ends, and media in our warehouse. We then open our warehouse door and invite the public to take these materials for a nominal fee. This event is great for artists, crafters, educators, and DIY aficionados, but everyone is welcome to participate. Our unique and quirky retail shop will also be open during the event, so if you haven’t experienced the magic of our reuse center, please plan to stop in after Reclaim.

Over 900 people have attended our Reclaim events.

Reclaim sponsorship levels and benefits are available.
