Donned in red hats and purple clothing on a beautiful spring-like day, a fine group of ladies from Robson Ranch visited downtown Denton. We first had a great lunch at the Chestnut Tree on the square in Denton. Then we headed over to meander around a unique store called SCRAP of Denton. The SCRAP stores were originally founded in Portland, Oregon by a group of teachers who had all sorts of leftover crafting supplies from their classrooms. These teachers got together and pooled the supplies and sought other people to donate their unwanted materials. SCRAP sells the materials for pennies on the dollar. You are likely to find a little of everything in this store, and it was such a unique experience rummaging through all the bins to find the treasures that might be uncovered. There were boxes of greeting cards with the challenge of finding the right sized envelope in another box. There were rolls of ribbon and lace. There were boxes of loose ceramic tiles in various colors, shapes and sizes. There were boxes of pull-tabs from soda cans. There were boxes of miscellaneous, and each item in these boxes took considerable study to determine what it was. The store also had a section dedicated to items for sale that were made from recycled products. Because SCRAP relies on donated items, there is not another store with the inventory of this one. By the end of the day most of the ladies had a “good deal” in their hands, and all the ladies had a smiles on their faces.
