With the holidays coming right up, make interesting gifts for those on your list, save money and keep unwanted odds and ends out of landfills by shopping at Art Parts, a not-for-profit “creative reuse center” in Boulder.
Inventory includes jewelry/parts/supplies, frames, art/craft/school/office materials, fabric, yarns, sewing and other needlework supplies for serious artists and crafters, an eclectic assortment of other reusable industrial surplus and DIY items suitable for children’s projects that the store resells at 30 to 90% off.
The immaculate and well-organized store is open Tuesdays through Saturdays, 10:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. (Thursdays, noon to 7 p.m.). Donations of clean reusable items are also accepted during Friday and Saturday business hours. Do check their website in advance as they post a list of what they do and do NOT need.
2870 Bluff St. (on the west-facing end of the low-slung commercial building across from RallySport), Boulder, 720-379-5328.
