The Scrap Exchange is a store that collects donations of all kinds of materials - everything from fabric remnants to glass vials to bottle caps - and sells them (for super cheap)...there is some awesome stuff there for those with a crafty bone!
Here's my haul (close-ups below):
Burt's Bees Baby Bee bottles ($1.25 each) - how cute would these be filled with pretty colored liquid soaps / body wash in the bathroom? I need to find some sort of lid / stopper for them if I do this.
Ribbons for wrapping (the blue and the bottom tan are raffia) - $1.00 each
An "M" that was $1.00 (actually, I think it's a W...) - I figure I can paint and distress it, or Mod-Podge it to make it cute (my last name starts with an M)
These are wallpaper remnants - same pattern, one is light blue, one is tan. Only $0.50 each! I thought these would be pretty in black frames (maybe in a bathroom in my HOUSE??)
Mini chalkboards ($0.75 each) - not sure what I'm going to do with these, but I've seen so many cute chalkboard ideas on blogs that I'm sure I can find something to do with them! Definitely will need to paint the frames.
What a cool store - I can't wait to go back!
