We are open to the public every day of the week 11 AM – 5 PM.
  • Every day from 11 AM – 12 PM, we kindly ask everyone to mask to provide a safer environment for immunocompromised individuals and others who prefer masking. After 12 PM, masks are strongly recommended and we have them available at the door.

We promote sustainability and creativity in our in-person creative experiences, as well as through custom kits, video tutorials, and live virtual instruction. Whether it’s for a classroom, community center, or virtual party, we love helping folks learn more about reuse while getting crafty!

About our Organization

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 ageism. No homophobia. No transphobia. No hate. We believe that people from marginalized communities deserve to be supported, respected, and safe.
