a curated collection of revitalised textiles

from donation to delight

At our resource recovery centre in Creative Community Space, we curate a diverse collection of donated materials, breathing new life into preloved fabrics and craft products. 

Our vibrant shop in Greensborough is dedicated to giving donated items a second chance, reducing waste, and creating sustainable shopping experiences for our customers.

Like an op-shop for crafting essentials, each purchase at our shop not only promotes sustainability and community engagement but also grants customers a 20% discount on their next purchase with every donation.

At Creative Community Space, we’re on a mission to transform unused fabrics and haberdashery items from clutter to creativity. Our goal is simple: to reduce waste by giving new life to forgotten materials and to empower our community to reimagine the possibilities of their crafting supplies.

refresh your
crafting stash sustainably

hand in your unused craft supplies

Bring your unused craft supplies to our shop. We accept a variety of items, including fabrics, patterns, and selected crafting tools and supplies, provided they are in good condition and suitable for reuse. Each item you donate contributes to our mission of sustainability and reduces crafting waste.

creative community space cirular credits (1)

turn them into circular credits

For every item you hand in, we’ll assess and price them while you shop. You’ll receive circular credits equivalent to the ticketed price of the items you’ve donated. For instance, if an item sells for $6, you’ll receive 6 circular credits.

pick your new items of joy

Once you’ve accumulated circular credits in your account, you can use them alongside cash to purchase items from our shop. Circular credits can be used for up to 50% of the sale price. Each credit is valued at $1, meaning if an item costs $6, you can use 3 credits and pay the remaining balance
in cash.

what are

circular credits

Circular credits are points you earn by donating textiles and craft supplies to us. These points can be redeemed to offset the cost of your purchases, allowing you to combine them with cash for payment. By utilising circular credits, you not only acquire new crafting materials but also play a vital role in promoting sustainability within the crafting community. Join us in revolutionising the way we shop and contribute to a more environmentally conscious approach, one donation at a time.

and sustainability.
