East Bay Depot for Creative Reuse

I'll be taking a brief hiatus from blogging as I'm off to Vietnam and Cambodia...

I checked out the East Bay Depot for Creative Reuse for the first time a month or two ago (bought a school desk), and I've been back since. It's a nonprofit in the Temescal neighborhood of Oakland (4695 Telegraph Avenue) that sells a random assortment of odds and ends - some used, others new and unwanted.

Let's see, you'll find paper, cards, fabric, magazines, books, movies, buttons, furniture, maps, art, toilet paper rolls, cans, jars, office supplies, corks - just to scratch the surface. You never know exactly what you're going to find when you go - perhaps they just got a shipment of doll heads. It's particularly worth checking out if you're into any sort of arts and crafts, have kids or if you're a teacher.
