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 biannual Reclaim event, 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 as much as they want for a minimum $5 donation per person. 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.

If you’re an architect or designer interested in making an appointment to donate materials, please contact to make an appointment or to find out about sponsorship opportunities. If you’d like to volunteer for Reclaim, please email
