About Scrapstore

SCRAPSTORE, Swindon is a low cost community resource centre and environmental charity that is home to a multitude of projects dedicated to releasing the untapped potential of all things, people and possibilities.

An Aladdin's cave of materials ready to stimulate your imagination. From crafts to furniture, reclamation to DIY and play - SCRAPSTORE has something for you. 

What We Need

We are interested in any materials or items that can be used in an art, craft, DIY, reclamation or play context. So long as all materials are clean, safe and suitable all it takes is a call to confirm and we are more than capable of taking large quantities off your hands €“ even clearing whole offices and stockpiles!

The more colourful and unusual the better, particularly with regard to paper, fabrics and plastics. If you can deliver, great! If not, call and we will arrange a convenient collection. Do something amazing today and get in touch. 


We are open to any member of the general public and support schools, community groups, child-minders, nurseries, colleges, students, youth groups, after-school clubs, crafters, art and drama groups, to name only a few. Our aim is to provide access for all to low cost creative materials, inspiration and resources. Whoever you are there will be a SCRAPSTORE for you.


    The Arts and Crafts Store

    The Arts and Crafts Store

    Our Arts and Crafts Shop has all the resources you might need for fun, safe craft and creativity.

    SCRAPSTORE works directly with the local community educating children, parents, child minders, play leaders and play professionals about the importance of creative play, imagination and self-expression.

    For this reason we decided to set up an Arts and Crafts Store with a difference. One open to everyone - that offers brand new materials at bargain prices (prices far under those of standard retailers) We believe in making creativity as accessible as possible without breaking the bank. Whether your looking for pocket money treats or enough materials to stock a pre-school crafts cupboard.

    From paint pots to scissors, paper mache to pipe cleaners, glue and googly eyes to card, foil and stencils. If you want it, we will probably have it. Brand new and at a price that doesn't break the bank. Come have a look for yourself or Get in Touch!
