Our friend Gina (who is a Resource Rescue member) has been using our art and craft supplies to create some fabulous things, and she has kindly allowed me to feature one of her beautiful creations right here on our blog.
Our suppliers are giving us so much crafts for kids that we don't know what to do with them all! So come on in and use up your membership because we want to see you again and again.
We've been getting busier and busier over the last 2 months...is this the storm before the calm??? We'll be very interested to see what happens over the coming school holidays. One thing is for sure though; Resource Rescue Inc. is here to stay. Our member base is growing and people are spreading the word.
Peter has just unloaded a plethora of kids crafts materials and he's taking photos as we speak. It seems the goods come in so quickly that we don't have time to process them! But then we always make time, and with the help of our sensational volunteer Gary, there's always time for a coffee at the end of the day.
We'd like to extend a special congratulation to our testimonials winner, Syndal Preschool, who wrote such a fantastic poem about us that I just might have to print it up and frame it.
Are you enjoying our art and craft supplies so much that you're telling everybody about us? Well, for the month of June only, we will reward you for your efforts! That's right: this month and only this month, we will be offering anybody who refers another member a FREE bag of materials.
Well, it was a tough decision....
......but there can only be ONE winner of our May art and craft supplies shop testimonials competition. The winner will receive one FREE bag of materials plus a hypnotherapy CD of their choice. Just take a look at the wonderful things people have said about our store on our testimonials page.
Hello guys, Well our art and craft supplies recycling expert Peter has been at it again! He's made another short video just to show the latest materials he picked up in the truck. Peter has a solid relationship with over 100 suppliers who regularly rely on him to visit their factories and take away their unwanted offcuts, seconds and other things that they would normally have had to take to the tip.
Hello one and all!
We're super excited about the latest school art supplies to grace our doorstep. We're eternally grateful to our wonderful suppliers for their generosity; and we're always on the lookout for new suppliers! So if you know anybody who has a business and is throwing away things that we might be able to use, give us a yell.
When you come into our store you will be truly flabberghasted at the volume of material that would otherwise have gone into landfill. The boys have been so busy with customers they haven't had time to scratch themselves!
The latest art and craft supplies to be donated to our store are excellent and we think you'll be very pleased with what we have to offer. The boys have been working very hard unloading the truck and taking photos of our materials so that you can see what we have in detail.
We were given some amazing perspex shelves; we sold a couple and used some to display our stock in the store. After all there's no point us having all these great cheap art supplies when you can't find what you're looking for; the shelves allow us display everything in a very neat way.
Did you know there are hundreds of ways to use recycled timber? Recycling expert Peter Van Os should know - he sources second hand building materials from many industries across Melbourne. Our materials are very popular with woodworkers, cabinet makers and the day to day handyman.
Today I have a video that showcases our stickers and how great they are for ideas regarding crafts for kids. Let's face it - kids love stickers (so do some adults!) So you can imagine our delight when one of our generous suppliers donated a HUGE load of stickers to Resource Rescue!
Let me tell you, we were jumping with joy when we saw all the stickers come out of that truck. We have so many of them that I decided merely posting photos of them just wouldn't do them justice. So....with the help of YouTube, I created a little video to showcase our delights.
The cheapest and best art and craft supplies are coming into our store thick and fast. I would almost say we have too much stuff; but then, you can NEVER have too much of this kind of stuff, can you? We don't think so either...
Peter and Gary are unloading the truck as I write this blog post and they have so much material that it will take them all morning to do it! ( I wonder if they'll have a coffee break??). Peter takes photos of the latest craft supplies and we regularly feature these in our blog posts, newsletters and on Facebook.
Good afternoon party craft supplies hunters! I thought I'd post today to show you all the ways you can use our materials for your party needs. Peter, who is an expert in re-use and has over 20 years experience in sourcing high quality cheap craft materials, has put together a smashing little video that shows you all the ways that our stuff can cater to YOUR party needs!
