Arts & crafts supplies

If you’re looking for a hobby that can keep you occupied and maybe help you relax, then keeping an eye out for arts and crafts supplies in thrift stores should be the first thing on your list. There are a lot of things that you can find there, from paint to wallpaper samples, from other fabrics to pottery and yarn!

And with them being so inexpensive, you can easily pick up a hobby like painting, restoring older objects, knitting, or a lot of other types of crafts. Don’t worry if you cannot find new canvases, as older ones can be painted over! Just let your imagination run wild and craft away!

  1. Let’s not forget electronics! Some of the best electronics gadgets I have came from a thrift store. One that I use daily is a Fisher cd player. I bought this over 10 years ago for $5. It was an older model, but still in it’s original package. After getting it home, I emptied the box to see what my small investment included. I was shocked when it appeared that it had never been out of the box… ever! From the protective plastic on the digital readout, the factory packing, and even the unwrapped batteries it came with! It was like grandpa had gotten it from the grandkids but never had use for it. Treasures like this are rare, but always a welcomed addition.

  2. Went for a specific item, a walker for my Mom. Had several to choose from and the one I chose was discounted even further at the register. I had no idea.

  3. I will shop at both ARC and Good Will. I love buying books there, although Good Will has much better organization of their bookshelves.
    I’ve found great deals on collectible teapots and teacups, and I always buy a package of random greeting cards.
