Today I stopped by a charity storefront in Fairport, NY....it's called "Bits & Pieces". The store accepts donations from the community of arts and crafts supplies....anything you have in your sewing, quilting, knitting, beading etc stash that you no longer have use for. I brought in a bunch of zippers, a large amount of lace curtain fabric and some knit fabric that I will never use. Volunteers repackage it and sell it in their storefront using the funds to pay for a senior bus service in their town. Well, I have to tell you the place was hopping with shoppers. I managed to buy 30 yards of cotton fabric and 4 cones of thread for $37. The fabric is priced at $1.00/yard....no matter what type it is.....and of course it's pure profit since they don't buy any of their merchandise. It has taken off so well, they had to establish a separate place for you to bring in your donations. It's wonderful and such a creative way to repurpose craft supplies.
