Creative Resale is a Michigan-based company that offers a website to sell, buy, trade, or donate new and used arts and craft supplies for a wide variety of subjects. Most artists, of all fields (and also people who have inherited supplies through family) have items that sit in boxes that take up valuable space. Maybe we thought we might actually use them someday, or we just did not like the media. Or you have considered donating to an organization that would put the material or equipment to good use.
The focus of this company isÂ upcyclingÂ – the cousin of recycling. Upcycling makes a dent in the larger issue of waste. It makes a difference that unused items are resold or donated to organizations instead of landing up in a landfill. Creative Resale caters to artists, crafters, students, and people who have inherited supplies from deceased or living acquaintances.
