Our baby ReClaim It!  has now saved over 150,000 pounds of useful material from going to the landfill.  A big thanks to all our our volunteers, customers and Recology for making this possible.  Check out the store that rescues items for reuse from the dump. We are dump divers for reuse! Store located at 1 N. Killingsworth St. on the corner of N. Williams and Killingsworth St. 

We rely on community support. We love volunteers! If you want to be the first to see what comes into the store, you will want to become one of our volunteer gleaners or store helpers.

More about how this all started below. 

We are writing to thank all you for coming to the art shows crackedpots has created over the past 16 years.  We have deeply valued your patronage and are glad you care so much about waste reduction and creative re-use.  Crackedpots has now opened a retail store and gallery!

As you may know, we have had this vision for years, and now we have made it happen!  The store, ReClaim It! sells items and artists materials that have been gleaned from the dump or received from local businesses.  You are going to want to see all this great stuff!  Metal boxes, wooden window frames, musical instruments, turned chair legs, heavy glass shelves, fishing rods & golf clubs, flooring &tile samples, interesting metal pieces, old typewriter parts, old tools…..who knows what else will be added each week as our gleaners sort through the dump, looking for treasures?

Looking forward to celebrating with you the beginnings of our long held dream!
