Someone told me yesterday that Scrap DC is closing. I just checked their website, and they are indeed closing up shop this weekend. So sad! They were such a great place for odds and ends for crafty projects. Fortunately it sounds like they’re going to try to pop up elsewhere in the spring. They’re running a crazy sale this week, which I imagine would be particularly great for crafty teachers! “Fill a box, a basket, a bag, a milk crate of amazing craft supplies for $5.”
“SCRAP DC IS CLOSING HER DOORS ON NOVEMBER 22! GET AMAZING DEALS ON ART AND CRAFT SUPPLIES, OFFICE SUPPLIES, FURNITURE AND FIXTURES!
OPEN TUESDAY – SATURDAY NOON – 6P”
Letter from the SCRAP USA National Executive Director:
Dear Friends and SCRAP Supporters,
SCRAP DC is going underground! Just like in nature, we will lay low until the Spring.
As you all know better than anyone, the cost of doing business in the District is staggering. For a small nonprofit, it is too much. But watch for us to re-emerge in the Spring with the same mission and a new shiny coat of colors.
Our store doors will close on November 22, but that’s not the end of us! You can watch for clues of where we will pop up next on our website and Facebook page.
As for now, we will not be taking any more donations beginning immediately. You can expect great sales through November. Our hours are Tuesday – Saturday, 12-6p.
We love you, Brookland! Thank you for the great support you’ve shown us.
