Fake limbs and biscuit tins, fabric swatches and cardboard boxes…

Dorset Scrapstore is a charity that believes in a world where manufacturing waste doesn’t go to landfill – it becomes a low cost community resource for crafting and creativity.

We love inspiring imaginations and saving £’s by providing our local community (schools, clubs, students & families…and…everyone really!) with access to affordable recycled craft making materials.

PLEASE NOTE: Our website will be going through some updates during April 2019  – if there is anything you cannot find, please contact us and we will do our best to help.

Our ever-changing supply of clean, safe and often random making materials are kindly donated by local businesses. If Scrapstore didn’t exist and salvage these goodies in our store, they would be destined for landfill. When you see our array of amazing materials, you will agree with us that one man’s waste is another’s treasure!

As if that isn’t awesome enough, we also offer our members access to a range of very reasonably priced arts supplies (paints, glue, fancy papers, clay etc etc…).

So please come and visit us and get your makey makey on!!!

£4 per small bag
We provide a standard bag size to collect materials in-store. To encourage re-use and recyling, we ask members to bring a spare strong carrier bag (such as a ‘bag for life’ ) to take goods home.

£7 per black bag
We are committed to keeping our materials as low cost as possible. We know from customer feedback that you think we are excellent value for money!
