Who Gives a Scrap is a donation based scrap store in Colorado Springs and Fort Collins that carries an impressive mix of arts, craft and hobby supplies in addition to unique vintage finds. At the April, 2019 Green Drinks, co-founders Jayne Blewitt and Lorrie Myers shared their story and how the store works. It’s an excellent resource for teachers, and it’s a beautiful alternative to tossing scraps and supplies you no longer need. Visit www.WhoGivesaScrapColorado.com for locations and information about what they accept and what you’ll find.
“A woman’s craft room is the same as a man’s garage.”
