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.

We’d like to sincerely thank everyone for their patience as we navigate our reopening phases, for following our mask wearing policy, and for supporting our decision to prioritize the health and safety of our community, volunteers, and staff during this unique moment in time.  

Please sign up for our newsletter (see below) for weekly updates. Also, check our Instagram or Facebook accounts to check out what’s new and tell us what you’re making. Photographs of recent additions and customer projects are frequently posted to our social media.

We accept cash, credit, and Creative Reuse gift certificates (buy one here).
