Upcycle Parts Shop grew out of founder Nicole McGee’s Collective Upcycle events, which featured artisans who worked with repurposed materials. Upcycle Parts provides those materials, offering an alternative to buying brand new stuff at an art supplies store. Here you’ll find the remnants of home rehab projects, extra school supplies, surplus wrapping paper, marbles, buttons, ribbon, yarn, corks, bottle caps, beads, boxes and … well, you never know. Shopping here could inspire some ideas. “We see possibility in everything,” they say.
Upcycle Parts also has a crafts bar where you can work on projects — or you can book it for a kid’s birthday party or other special event. It also brings its concept out into the surrounding community.
