And now for a little something for our creative minds! Resource Warehouse is a great place to hunt for reclaimed materials at low prices. Their vision and goals are valiant and worth reading about on their website, but for today, we are just covering the basics. Everything they offer has been diverted from the urban waste stream, organized and made available for a creative eye to claim.
They also offer reskilling classes and have a workspace available for parties. They always have a special deal on something, of which I benefited greatly when hunting fabrics for our backyard Shakespeare play last fall. I scored a 50 gallon bag of upholstery scraps for just two dollars!
