Drop n Swap: Crafty Edition

Stratford Public Library

Ever wonder… what to do with the stuff you no longer want? Join SPL’s sustainability effort to keep unwanted items out of our landfill – drop it off here, and swap it for something you may treasure! Free to drop, free to “shop” - no money exchanged at all, no dropping necessary for swapping! 

How it works

The DROP | Sept 21 (5-8) & Sept 22 (10-4): Drop off your clean, lovely, but no-longer-wanted craft supplies. Items must be clean, gently used or unused, in good condition (i.e. no dried-out paint or paintbrushes). When you donate items, you will receive an "early bird" voucher for the swap the following day.

*Thursday drop-off is on the main floor. Friday drop-off is in the Auditorium.

The SWAP | Sept 23 (10:30-4): Come pick out new items! You do not need to donate to participate but those who do will be admitted to the "early bird" timeslot from 10:00-10:30 AM. General admission is from 10:30-4. 

*Please bring your own bags or boxes to carry your items home in

**Leftover items will be donated to Goodwill, and partnering organizations

What to donate

What to bring: Fabrics and quilting supplies, sewing, knitting supplies, scrapbooking paper, scissors, glue guns (clean), jewellry making, new/nearly new art paint supplies
