Handmade in Kansas City members X37 Adventures share a new location to purchase, donate and create in Kansas City.
The West Bottoms have always been the go-to destination for antiques, vintage, and one of a kind items and now it can be your go-to place for craft and art supplies.
Scraps KC is a newly opened store on W. 12th street in the West Bottoms that seeks to inspire creativity in art and education, positively impact the environment and provide hope for the homeless through creative reuse, redistribution and renewal.
Not only will you find supplies and ideas neatly organized in Scraps KC, all of the supplies are donated and repurposed. I can tell you from personal experience that this in no ordinary place; we at X37 found so many good supplies and ideas. But the best part about Scraps KC? The fact that it gives back to the community! Not only with dedication to reducing the amount of material in landfills but also helping the homeless get work experience and finding a job.
Scraps KC 's has a retail store is filled with a multitude of creative, colorful, and useful industrial, household, and educational materials that would normally end up in the landfill. Businesses, manufacturers, schools and community members donate items that would be useful to artists, teachers, makers, churches, scouts, DIYers, and other creative people, instead of discarding the items into the trash. Scraps KC diverted over 12 tons of materials from the landfill by the time they launched the operation in September, 2016. The newest donation to Scraps KC was 4000 pounds of tile that would have gone into a landfill.
