What to know before shopping with us!


We are a bulk shopping community store that sources recycled material for educators, creatives, and makers.


What is bulk shopping?

At our community store we sell most of our creative supplies by the bag. A filled large bag costs ($8) or a small bag ($4.50) to fill up with supplies. Yarn, fabric, puzzles, wood scraps, tiles, stickies, machine parts, greeting cards, and many more recycled creative materials. You can check out our priced bags and individual items at our online sales Instagram page @detroitcommunitystore now!


What do we price individual and why?

We have a small section by our register that is ALL individually priced items, ranging from 10 cents to 20 dollars. In this section we have small baskets to use while shopping. Everything will have prices on the bins, be mindful as to what bins you are taking things from for an easier check out. In this section we stock our specialty items like sewing, scrapbooking, fine art supplies and new unopened items. This section also gets roped off when we have our student field trips in the store so the children don’t fill up their bags with paint, xacto knives and other items that may not be safe for everyone.
