Reconsidered Goods newsletter January 2020

The end of 2019 got away from me, but we did have a great year at RG!  We've grown in every way possible! A BIG thank you to our customers and our donors. We are successful because of you. Our yearly total was 113.09 TONS of materials donated to RG that were given a life of reuse instead of heading for the landfill!!!!


This month we are highlighting one of our great volunteers. Many of you may know Kathy Clark. She is a local activist/icon and may have sprinkled glitter on you while she was dressed as a gold statue at a local festival. Kathy brings her passion for sustainability and the community to her volunteer shift each week and we love having her on the RG volunteer team. Thanks for all that you do, Kathy!


2020 is going to be our year to really launch our new events space. We have birthday parties (for all ages), crafting events, team building workshops, field trips, large group volunteer opportunities, event space rental, meeting and workshop space rental and so much more.......... Stay tuned for pricing and more information on all of the scheduled fun. Our Make and Take Lab is open every Friday and Saturday from 1-5. $6 a maker. Drop in for some making fun.



We are starting off February with some First Friday Fun and crafternoons. Take a look below:

Join us for some First Friday Fun at Reconsidered Goods!

Add some positive momentum to your month with a deck of affirmation cards! We will be making our own unique collage affirmation cards as a way to focus in on positive and motivating thoughts.

Participants will transform all kinds of collage goodies (books, magazines, vintage papers, scrapbooking supplies, washi tape) into mini works of art!

All supplies and instructions are provided. Bring some friends, snacks and drinks for an evening of crafty fun! Drop in anytime from 5-8PM, admission is $10 per maker.


Every second Sunday of the month join us at Reconsidered Goods for an afternoon of crafty fun!

No registration required- drop in any time between 12:00-5:00PM and bring snacks, drinks and friends with you for an afternoon of creativity! Admission is $10 per maker.
