Welcome to the brand-spankin'-new Resource Exchange newsletter!

We know you receive many emails in a given day, so we promise to bring you interesting news, recent inventory arrivals, and upcoming event announcements with every newsletter you receive.

We've had a busy summer saving all kinds of art supplies, building materials, and home decor from two movies recently shot in Philly, plus some really cool theatre scenery and props. You never know what you'll find in our warehouse, so come see us soon and pick up some reclaimed supplies for that summer project you've been dying to start!

In Store Now!

Our volunteers have just denailed hundreds of reclaimed 2 x 4's and 4 x 4's, and we've also got full and half sheets of homasote, lauan, plywood, and more...all at low cost!
And we've still got some of the rough cut poplar we saved from the recent production of Charlotte's Web at The Arden. Our friends at The Philadelphia Sculpture Gym are giving the salvaged barn doors a second life in their warehouse space, and we were thrilled when Little Berlin decided to use the poplar to build their community vegetable garden in The Little Berlin Fairgrounds (pictured below).

The Resource Exchange is dedicated to enabling and promoting creative reuse in local art, craft, and design. We'll feature new works in each newsletter, on our website and blog, and in our store. Have you reCreated with materials from The Resource Exchange?  If so, we want to hear from you!  Send photos with a brief description of your work to us at
