Off the Top of Our Heads,
Here are 100 Types of Items We generally Have
Materials donated to LCR include craft materials from individuals that are used, partly used, and sometimes even new! We also receive samples, overstock and seconds from businesses. We make these available at low cost to anyone who can use them, to stretch the budgets of families, artists and organizations in their creative endeavors.
Our offerings are constantly changing, so while we cannot guarantee that some of these will always be in stock, this list gives an idea of the types of things you can find at Lancaster Creative Reuse.
