[greenyes] Fw: SCRAP Retail Space Grand ReOpening


FYI...


Please join us Saturday for the:

SCRAP Grand ReOpening Celebration

WHAT

SCRAP, the School and Community Reuse Action Project, will celebrate
the Grand Re-Opening of our new retail space on Saturday, February 29,
2004. Everyone is invited to join the festivities that run from 11 a.m.
until 6 p.m. Visitors will be amazed by the smorgasbord of reusable
items that can be incorporated into creative projects. Items like
fabric, yarn, paper, office supplies, CD jewel cases, buttons, stickers
and many other curious materials can be found at the new reuse
superstore.

"The great, new space also means great, new scrap!" said Teri Petersen,
Executive Director, who has spent the last several weeks working with a
host of volunteers, designers, carpenters and artists to get the new
shop up and running. "A lot of wonderful material was squirreled away in
the basement over the years and now it's all going out on the shelves."

In early January, SCRAP moved from the former location on Mississippi
Street it had shared with the ReBuilding Center for three-and-a-half
years. The old store was absolutely brimming with customers and the
workshop room was ever-popular, so it was time to expand. The new
location on Williams Avenue will allow SCRAP to expand its programs, its
inventory and its hours, while remaining in the same neighborhood that
has supported it for the past several years.
