The Store

Scrappies is bursting with end-of-line and recycled resources for craft, art and household projects of all kinds.  Fabric, craft materials, stationery, haberdashery and a huge range of off-cuts from industries are just some of the items on offer. Scrappies is also an outlet for Tools for Self Reliance, where you can find pre-owned and refurbished tools to help with DIY projects. We’re open to the public, so do come and visit us in Church Stretton – the heart of the lovely Shropshire Hills.

Scrappies will re-cycle any of the items listed below when they are donated by local businesses or community members. Of course, we can’t guarantee all of these items will be in stock at any given time. It’s always best to come in and see for yourself as our offerings are always changing.

Donation of items for sale in the shop:

  • We welcome donations of clean, safe items for use in children’s education and creative arts on Saturday afternoons, between 2.00pm and 4.00pm. We cannot accept donations at any other time as we have to keep them for 72 hours before putting them out for sale and we don’t have very much storage space.
  • You are NO LONGER required to make an appointment to donate items to the store..
  • At this time we do not require the following items – yoghurt pots, butter tubs, egg boxes (please use your home recycling boxes for all these and anything else you can recycle easily) or lever arch files. A list of acceptable items can be found below .
  • Donations will be stored for at least 72 hours before we handle them or put them out in the shop.

Thank you for your understanding.
