Today I’m paying homage to one of my favorite thrift stores: Lancaster Creative Reuse.
Located in Lancaster, PA, LCR’s mission is to connect community excess to those who can use it creatively. Basically, imagine a charming low-cost thrift store bursting at the seams with myriad craft supplies and fun miscellaneous novelties, all local donations. I’ve visited the store on many occasions, and let’s just say I never go home empty-handed!
Here are two of my LCR favorites. I think I paid .50 for the tin and maybe $1 for the bottle.
Not only does LCR sell some great stuff, but it also hosts fun kid-friendly events and values community outreach. Curious if something like LCR exists where you live? Check out this directory of creative reuse centers in the U.S. and around the world.
