Long Beach Depot For Creative ReUse
October 29, 2014

As the resident artist of "The Depot", I think that being around so many interesting people and their collections of "junk" has really influenced my view as an artist. The only thing we should throw away is the mindset that everything is disposable. This shop takes all those extra beads, fabric remnants, broken jewelry, half-used notebooks, and lonely buttons and sells them for a VERY affordable price to artists, teachers, students, neighborhood kids, etc. I believe that creative reuse is a survival skill that everyone needs.

Long Beach Depot For Creative ReUse
November 30, 2012

As the resident artist of "The Depot", I can honestly say that growing up in the vicinity of so many interesting (and random) scraps and collections of "junk" has really influenced my view as an artist. The only thing we should throw away is the mindset that everything is disposable. This shop takes all those extra beads, fabric remnants, broken jewelry, half-used notebooks, and lonely buttons and adopts them out to the loving and creative hands of artists, teachers, students, neighborhood kids, etc. I believe that creative reuse is a survival skill that everyone, today's youth especially, should have. "The Depot' eliminates half if not all of the dumpster-diving. I feel that the neighborhood has truly blossomed in the 5 years that the shop has been here.
