Review for Art of Recycle, Ephrata, PA, USA
My daughter and I found -“Art of Recycle” in an unusual way. We were enjoying a very magical last day together before she flew to Europe.
As we walked back to the car, I had just finished saying, “I wish we could find a place to recycle these bottles” when we looked over and saw - The Art of Recycle. We walked in the door and knew we had found the perfect magical spot.
Their former shop was very small, and although it was organized, you had to dig through bins to see everything- is there anything more fun than looking for buried treasure?
My daughter had just picked up the perfect travelers coat with mismatched buttons at a local thrift shop, and Art of Recycle’s whimsical place fit right in with our mood.It was the perfect end to our day.
That was several years ago. Now, hit their shop before any craft or centerpiece project I need to create, and base my design around the unique things I always find.
The staff are as engaging and quirky as the shop, naturally.
Even if I never found another item I could use (yeah, right), I’d continue to shop there to help fund the tons of free teachers items they maintain, the fact that they provide students with a disability the chance to help out in the community, and that they employ those with a disability. And, they do all that in a fun, ‘we’re so glad YOU’RE here way.
You can challenge your creative brain, know you’re among friends, donate craft stuff, and help your own community. Why WOULDN’T you shop there.
