Yes, in certain cases. For people such as artists or set designers, please contact us. We ask that all scrap be donated when it is no longer needed.
Currently the Thrift Store does not take phone calls. Our store front is usually very busy, and the staff are working hard to make sure our customers leave happy. If you have questions about products or prices, please check out the Price List, email us at email@example.com, or come visit us in person.
Our staff are too busy during regular hours to give tech support. We do, however, provide free tech support during Open Help Night.
