BASE Spring Clearance Sale


Join us for our semi-annual clearance sale of new, used and salvaged art and craft supplies! Twice a year we bring out all the over stock that doesn’t fit in BASE and offer it to the public at even lower than usual prices. This is a great chance to find cheap supplies for a project and do the planet a favor by putting things to use that might have ended up in the waste stream. Whether you’re a professional artist, a student, a parent, or just someone who wants to try something new without breaking the bank, we’ve got something to inspire you. And as always, all supplies are FREE for teachers and community organizations!

What is BASE?

BASE (the Brushwood Art Supply Exchange) is a creative reuse center where your unwanted art and craft supplies can find new life.  We provide materials, tools and education at very low-cost to the public, and free to educators and community partners.  Come to donate, shop, or learn something new at our workshops and special events.  You can even schedule a private BASE class for your group or party! From professionals and educators to students, families and the simply craft-curious, we want everyone to have a chance to get creative. BASE is open for business during our regular open hours, and we accept donations of supplies to BASE any time during these hours. Learn more here.
