SCRAP Humboldt, a friend to many a crafty folk who enjoyed searching for treasure in its Arcata store, announced today that it will close at the end of July.

A news release from Director Kati Texas states SCRAP Humboldt wants to say the doors will one day reopen but that’s unclear at this time.

“SCRAP Humboldt filled our little niche in the material reclamation ecosystem, and that niche will remain, the release, which includes a long list of thanks, states. “But we can’t predict what the future will hold, so for now we need you all to be your own SCRAP. “

Read the full release below:
SCRAP Humboldt is sad to announce that we will be closing our doors at the end of July. Since we opened in 2012 we have enjoyed so much support from this community. We gratefully accepted your boxes of treasures, and took joy in helping crafty people of all ages find their inspiration while doing our part to keep useful things out of the landfill.

Thank you to all our customers. Thank you to every individual, business, and grant program who has given financial support. Thank you to every adult and child who has joined us to learn how to make beautiful things while keeping the planet beautiful. Thank you to you everyone who took the time to bring their creative reuse materials to us rather than letting them go to waste. Thank you to the Arcata Marsh Commons, our landlords for the years of support and patience. Thank you to the hundreds and hundreds of volunteers who have helped us every single day with jobs large and small. We truly couldn’t have done it without you.

We want to say that we will be back. SCRAP Humboldt filled our little niche in the material reclamation ecosystem, and that niche will remain. But we can’t predict what the future will hold, so for now we need you all to be your own SCRAP. Practice the four R’s - Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Rot, and support the other places in our community that work to keep our planet clean and our hearts full.
