We are always looking for items to re-purpose and re-use.  Not only does this help us here at the museum, but also helps to keep these items out of landfills a little longer!

Some of the items we are always looking for are:

  • Wine corks
  • Egg cartons
  • Plastic bottle caps

  • Paper tubes

  • Thread spindles
  • Unwanted art supplies
  • Storage containers
  • Children's books
  • Socks
  • Folding chairs
