Our Scrapstore lies at the heart of Scrapantics – it’s our first point of contact with the public. Run with the help of our volunteers, this is where our wonderful range of recycled resources are sorted, processed and sold. Here you can find a constantly evolving stock of materials ranging from wood and hand tools to paper, fabric, yarn, card and stationery. If you look hard enough, you’re also bound to find some unusual and fascinating oddities!
At the Scrapstore we aim to celebrate and promote anything that is happening locally. If you speak to our staff, you will be able to find out about all manner of projects and opportunities in which you can participate. Our store is an invaluable resource for artists, theatres, parents with young children, DIY fanatics – anyone with an interest in creating something while recycling at the same time!
Our Scrapstore stocks ready-made activity packs for purchase in-store. These contain everything required for a fun creative activity, such as puppet making or soap carving. Suitable for all ages, these packs can turn a dreary day into something stimulating and positive. During the Covid lockdown, we gave away 600 of these packs for free!
We welcome donations from anyone. Excess resources from local industry are particularly welcome, as well as anything from the local public, be it old art, pots and pans, books or a curious piece of wood. If you think a redundant object may have a life elsewhere, then we can probably find a use for it.
Scrapantics aims to celebrate and promote goings-on in Dundee in any way we can, whether it’s by providing resources, spreading word of mouth in the community or by holding small events.
Between our members, volunteers and staff, the Scrapantics community is involved throughout Dundee – schools, nurseries, theatres, volunteer groups, small businesses, artists, craftspeople, parents and children are all connected to our business!
What’s more, Scrapantics runs several groups throughout the city, including a Women’s Group and Home Education Groups – we also have our Community Steering Group, comprised of about 20 members, who share their expertise to help to shape and design our business.
Anybody can use the store without a membership if they are spending less than £3 a day (which can get you a surprising amount!). For more regular users, membership cards can be bought for the following prices:
