The Craft Box News & Happenings ~ December 2017
Our Craft Fair continues through Saturday, December 9th. Please come by and support local artists!
The Craft Box will be closed on December 25th and 26th and January 1st and 2nd.
Changes to Compensated Intake Procedures:
We know that some of you have been frustrated with the long wait to bring your items in for compensation so we’re changing how we take appointments for compensated intakes. And now that we have all of our inventory in one place, we are working on managing our space and won’t be accepting as many pre-scheduled appointments.
To get an appointment for January, please call starting January 3rd at 10:00 a.m. We will taking 10 appointments for the month. You must talk to us to schedule an appointment, please do not leave a voice mail. We will not be taking appointments for any other month. We will post on our website when we are accepting appointments.
Please consult our website for updated lists on items that we are not taking. Our previous guidelines still apply: a limit of 3 boxes or large bags per drop off, we will not pay for items that smell like moth balls, smoke or mustiness, or items covered in pet hair.
Beginning January 3, 2018 after 10:00 a.m., we will be accepting calls for 10 appointments for the month of January. Watch our website (and newsletter) for the next set of available appointments. We are not accepting rubber stamps, apparel or home decorator fabric. If you can’t wait until then, we will accept donations at any time.
Typically, December is the coldest month of the year in the Denver area. With that in mind, we will be collecting hats, scarves, socks and gloves to distribute to the homeless through December 30th. Last year we collected close to 100 items, we hope to top that this year! We will also keep collecting shoes for Soles4Souls until further notice.
Winner of the October/November Creativity Challenge is Kim L. Congratulations, Kim! Thank you to all who participated, whether it was submitting an entry or voting for your favorite.
We’re taking a break in December because you’ve got enough to do this month! Watch for the January announcement!:
How the Creativity Challenge works: Each challenge is consists of two months: the first month the challenge is announced and you create your entry. The finished project must be brought to the Craft Box by the end of the first month. The second month is for our customers to vote on their favorite. The winner will be announced at the end of the second month and will receive $10.00 Gift Certificate to The Craft Box.
