circle of reuse

SHOP and DONATE to complete the circle of use and reuse.

At The I.D.E.A. Store, we’re passionate about finding fun, functional and creative reuse for the materials we often take for granted. This is the place you bring the stuff that you just don’t need anymore. It is a unique shopping experience. You’ll find an ever-changing inventory of donated materials for projects of all shapes and sizes. The store is home to curious, creative, caring artists and educators. We share green ideas for art and everyday living.

We are an enterprise of Champaign Urbana Schools Foundation, a non-profit supporting excellence in our local public schools.
