What can you find at The Idea Store?

The store is a treasure trove of materials for projects large or small. You’ll find discarded materials that are perfect for building, decorating, creating, experimenting, teaching, and learning. Our inventory is always evolving, so check in regularly. You never know what you’ll find!

By The Pound

Priced as Markedpainbrush_shop

Other items are sold individually or in bundles. Sometimes we have just one of something, other times we have thousands. If you are looking for something special or an especially large quantity, give us a call. We’ll do everything we can to help you out.
