One person's scrap is another person's great find! If you are looking for items to re-purpose. This is a great place. We found logs for the fireplace that are usually used for gas fireplaces. We re-purposed them in the warmer months with LED lights so we have that fireplace glow all year long. Cost$6.00 for what you could pay $130.00 if purchasing new.

The best ever. My favorite thing: I customize, collect, and sew for vintage, modern, and artist dolls. They have a whole section that’s just doll stuff - vintage clothes, parts, and complete dolls. Also, the people who work here are literally the nicest and sweetest!!
It’s a must-see if you’re visiting Durham.

Scrap Exchange never ceases to amaze me! When I was a kid (80s kid), growing up in Durham, the Scrap Exchange was a small one room store. The large blue barrels were filled with keyboard keys and other strange recycled materials. Today the Scrape Exchange is huge, like an amusement park!!! One could spend an entire day hunting and gathering material for their next creative endeavor. Highly recommend and encourage folx to stop by and explore and support this space.

Absolutely love this place. It's an artist's paradise. Everything is so cheap and they really focus on reuse/recycle everything! I got nearly 200 colored pencils for only $3! Loads of amazing vintage patterns, affordable fabric, tons and tons of craft items just everything you could need and extremely affordable. Come here if you're in the area!!
