The Supply Closet
Whether it’s leftover materials from a brief foray into macramé or never opened goods from an unrealized fantasy of becoming a wood burner extraordinaire, most crafters have a giant stash of craft supplies that will never be used again. The Supply Closet at Wholly Craft helps bring these supplies back to life and get them into the hands of other makers who will put them to use.
The Supply Closet is a recycled craft supply resource accepting donations of gently used craft supplies including yarn, fabric, ribbon, jewelry making tools, paper craft supplies, and instructional books. These materials are sorted, merchandised, and made available at pay-as-you-wish pricing. Visitors to the Supply Closet inside Wholly Craft can name their own price for individual supplies or pick up a basketful of supplies for $10. Proceeds from the Supply Closet support free kids craft programming and a portion of every sale benefits Women Crafting Change.
Donations are accepted anytime during store hours. If you have an extra large donation (like a full car load), please email or call ahead so we can prepare some space. Want to know if you can donate macramé cord and wood burning tools? Please check out our Donation Wish List below!
The Supply Closet is open during regular store hours but closed during special events like workshops and birthday parties. If you're making a special trip just to shop the Supply Closet, please email or call ahead to make sure it's open.
