The Create/Exchange

The Create/Exchange Description

The Create Exchange is Cedar Rapids most unique Arts and Crafts Supply Store and Gift Shop. We are a resale shop and have pay as you wish pricing.
We carries a wide variety of traditional arts and crafts supplies (paint, fabric, yarn, scrap booking supplies, etc.) as well as unusual and vintage supplies (keys, silverware, wire, wood, shutters, etc) used for popular projects like those found on Pinterest
Our inventory is community driven and we gladly accept drop-offs. We even offer store credit for items on our wish list.
Our goals are to prevent perfectly good supplies from collecting dust on your shelves or worse, ending up in the landfill and to make supplies accessible and affordable to those who can use them.
We are a locally owned small business and support local artists and crafters. Our Gift Shop features a range of beautiful and useful items, all handmade right here in Iowa. Gift shop items include original fine art pieces, jewelry, home decor, and crocheted creations.
