Arts & Crafts Supply Swaps

Due to the overwhelming success of our October 2023 Arts & Crafts Supply Swap, we will continue this program and expand on our original Earth Day Swap!

2024 Dates

Earth Day Arts & Crafts Supply Swap
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle! Keep your supplies out of the landfill and pass them on to others who can use them to get creative!

Supply Drop-Off: April 1-20th and day of swap (April 22nd)
Swap: Monday April 22nd (10am-7pm)

IMPORTANT NOTE: We will be limiting people to two bags  until 4pm. After 4pm, it's take as much as you can craft with.


ARTOber Arts & Crafts Supply Swap
Celebrate the arts in Bangor by making something new or fostering creativity in others by passing on unneeded supplies!
Supply Drop-Off: Dates TBD in October
Swap (2-days): Will be the day of the Downtown Bangor Art Festival plus one bonus day!


How it Works

Drop off new or gently used arts and crafts supplies on the designated drop-off days (or come with supplies on the day of the swap).  

Please note that we will be limiting patrons to two bags of supplies to take home.  If you work with a community group or school, let us know ahead of time and we can expand the number of bags.

Some ideas of what to bring in:

  • Yarn
  • Knitting needles
  • Paper (card stock, drawing, watercolor, craft)
