COVID Precautions:
Please wear a mask, we will also be wearing masks
Please sanitize your hands when entering the shop (sanitizer available at front door)

No, you need separate appointments for shopping and donating. But for your convenience, we do have donation appointments on Saturday mornings right before our shopping hours.

Yes! Get their cell phone number and email address as shoppers/donators will receive a confirmation email upon making the appointment and a reminder text 48 hours before their appointment.
-How do I cancel an appointment?
Follow the link through your confirmation email. (And thanks for doing so if you can’t make it)
-Can I shop if someone in my household has been ill?
Please wait to shop until everyone in your household is feeling fine and testing negative for Covid!

Thanks for your ongoing support!!

Scrap It Up is a non-profit creative reuse center in Cincinnati.

What are we? Scrap It Up is a place to find, donate and be inspired by a myriad of art, craft, and just plain cool materials!

Why did we start? To help keep gently used art materials and upcycled items out of the landfill and give them new life!

Who do we help? If you’re an artist, teacher, student, parent, kid, adult, or anyone else, we have something for you!

Where are we located? Scrap It Up is located at 5935 Ridge Road in Pleasant Ridge. Parking is available in the upper lot of the Pleasant Ridge Recreation Center.

Wondering how to get involved? We want to hear from you…please share your thoughts, ideas and stories about creative reuse!
