What items do you take?
We take new, used, partially used, and even some scraps of art and craft supplies. We offer store credit for your trade. You fill out a form with your information and we offer store credit based on what you bring us and store it digitally for you to use. The credit does not expire.
What do you do with items that don't sell?
If they are still usable, we will donate them to an appropriate organization or charity.
Can I donate to you monetarily?
No, but we have a Patreon that includes a monthly subscription you can cancel anytime, and behind-the-scenes photos and other rewards for supporting us. Join here: https://www.patreon.com/bottomofthebin
How do I become a teacher?
Send an email to email@example.com, and we'll reply with a questionnaire for you to fill out to apply. If you're selected, we'll work out details about the class, price, date, etc.
What items do you not take?
We generally don't accept decor, finish projects, or baking items. We do not take items that can be considered hazardous or of a health concern such as broken glass, nicotine or pet smells, stains, mold or mildew, etc. If we come across any we didn't notice during the trade, we will dispose of them properly afterwards. We also do not accept spray paint, super glue, or open resin. Otherwise, we only turn away items that don't fit in with what we normally sell, items we have too many of, and items that haven't performed well in the past. We also can't take items that are too large or heavy for our space such as sewing and other machines.
Do you take donations?
No, we're a for-profit store, but we offer store credit for anything you don't want anymore. Even if you don't plan to use it, you'll be required to fill out a form with your information, and we'll assign you minimal amount of store credit that we'll keep on file for you to use.
Can I purchase something I saw on your Facebook or Instagram feed?
Currently our online store and physical store inventory are separate. While you can purchase anything from the online store and have it shipped to you or held in store for pickup, our in-store inventory is not available to purchase online or over the phone. Please visit to see what's in stock. Thank you for understanding!
How do I become a featured artist?
We're currently not accepting new artists in store, but we will post on Facebook when that changes. In the meantime, you can submit to be a featured artist in our email newsletter by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we'll reply with a questionnaire for you to fill out. If you're selected, we'll let you know.
