What People Say

“Great resources – low cost, maximum fun.”
Scrapstore member

“Wonderful choice of different materials and resources. Many of which cannot be easily found in shops or elsewhere. Staff always very helpful and have lots of good ideas on what to do with materials… can always find unusual items to use. Excellent value for money.”
Scrapstore member

“A very useful, varied resource. All recycled or donated or reasonably priced new items. Very useful for any kind of creative project… it is very green and the materials are very varied – it would cost a lot more if bought from a shop.”
Scrapstore member

“The best thing I have ever done!”
