Have stuff to donate to Perennial?

We accept donations during our retail hours 11-5 Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays. At this time we are only accepting donations from this list, thank you for your understanding! We are currently on a fabric freeze while we sort through what we have. Come help us clear room by shopping our retail stash!

Here’s a list of stuff we need:

  • stained glass sheets or scraps (flat and colorful panes, no bottles)
  • wood frames (no larger than 12″ x 16″)
  • metal baking pans – round + square (8-9″) and rectangle (9/13″) – NO cookie sheets!
  • hinges
  • embroidery hoops
  • paint brushes (foam + fiber)
  • small jars 1-8oz (like baby food, sample jam jars)
  • black walnuts
  • burlap coffee bags
  • leather belts
  • bright t-shirts with NO side seams
  • embroidery floss
  • large eyed sewing needles
  • keys
  • yarn
  • 2 x 4 wood (longer than 3′)
  • 2 x 6 wood (longer than 3′)
  • linen or silk fabrics
  • large cutting mats (24 by 36)
  • thermal printer for shipping labels
  • digital SLR camera with video capabilities (hey an organization can dream right?)

Due to lack of space there are a few things we can never take:

  • furniture
  • unfinished craft projects
  • plastic food containers
  • fabric scraps

If you have an item you think we’d be interested in, but it’s not on our current donation list. You can email a picture to to see if we can use it.

Got something to give away that we can’t use? Check to see if you have a local Buy Nothing Chapter.

Remember the number one way to keep things out of the landfill is to reduce our consumption. For tips, check out this great infographic How to Get Rid of Throwaway Culture
