Review for Long Beach Depot For Creative ReUse, Long Beach, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

A Long Beach gem, this little store has some new and gently used items that can be reused for fun creative projects without having to spend a lot of money. It really is the only place where you can actually find items beginning at .01 cents like old postage stamps to unique local artists' work where they receive 100% proceeds! Support and donate generously, all monies go to literally help pay the rent of the space!

Review for Long Beach Depot For Creative ReUse, Long Beach, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

For over 5 years now, the Creative Reuse depot continues to be the only place where you can not only be inspired to reuse items that might otherwise end up in the trash, but is a terrific role model for small businesses. The fact that they are still surviving especially during this economy shows that this type of business is a necessity in our community, if not the entire U.S.! Whenever I need just that little something to finish one of my pieces, they always have it or something even better. They always "far exceed" and deserve 100 stars for all of their efforts in educating us to be more "green".

Review for Long Beach Depot For Creative ReUse, Long Beach, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Creative Reuse Depot has become quite the Long Beach Treasure and such a wonderful model for others to follow. Lisa, her daughter Yoshi and the supporting artist team really do build unity in the community through their collective efforts of sharing their "up-cycling" talents and generosity. They have actually educated me in how to reduce through reuse and now I hardly throw anything away! I absolutely love the various creative displays and Yoshi's workshops are wonderful, especially the art of Yarn bombing (I even learned how to finger crochet!). Their work is simply fantastic and truly deserving of a Top Rated Non-Profit award.
