What items do you take?

We take new, used, and some partially used traditional art and craft supplies. For a list of common items we take and don't take, please refer to our home page. We offer store credit for your trade. We have you fill out a form with your information and we offer store credit based on what you bring us. We don't use an exact formula. Stoore credit is kept on file digitally for you to use. The credit does not expire and is only good for the location you brought it to. Store credit doesn't work on handmade items or classes/workshops. Please call if you have specific questions.
