I come to Spare Parts for the amazing prices and for the supplies I need. Everyone who volunteers there is so friendly, too”

Alina, Student

I shop at Spare Parts because their prices can’t be beat. Picking up a new hobby is much easier when the supplies are not expensive. Some hobbies comes with a huge price tag and Spare Parts helps cut the cost by selling slightly used art materials. For example, I wanted to learn how to sew and bought a sewing machine for $50 at Spare Parts. This helped me get started on my sewing journey. Now I’m able to shop for fabric at Spare Parts.
