Treasures from SCRAP

I'm so excited to have finally discovered a local treasure trove just a few blocks from our house.  I've long been meaning to check out a place called Scrap where people and business donate all sorts of odds and ends.  You and I can buy them for pennies!  And the inventory changes all the time, so you get to discover things every time you visit.  If you're an artist this place is heaven!

Check out what I got for $10:
Drapery fabric sample books for a buck each;
An entire Coke promo movie reel for 75 cents;
Beaded trim, photo slide frames; seed packets and a pair of pinking sheers for $5!

 If you live in Portland, you should definitely stop by Scrap if you get a chance.  You can find some really inspiring items and support a non-profit at the same time.

I'll be back with some things created with my new treasures.
Have a great Sunday!
