From Reconsidered Goods.

“Wondering what Reconsidered Goods is all about? The short version is that we are a 501-(c)(3) non-profit that takes donated materials from maufacturers and individuals and helps divert them from the landfill and instead, puts these items and materials into the hands of artists, makers, teachers and kids to create something new. Our locations features a retail store, workshop space, a maker’s lab, gallery space, and a community room for artists to meet and create together. We have opened our retail location and we are now be able to offer these materials to the public as inexpensive supplies to reuse and be creative with, rather than purchasing new.

Visit us in our new location at 2805 Patterson St, Greensboro NC 27407

If you have items or materials that you know have some life left in them or if you work at a company that has materials that are unused or could be used creatively, then get in touch with us about making a donation.
