We will be having an Open Workshop day on Saturday, July 27th.  You will be able to come and use all of our wonderful tools and have space to work on your projects, whether they’re sewing, paper crafting or art related!  Space in these workshops will be limited, so be sure to sign up early.  Check our website or call the store for more details.

We so appreciate all of the donations we receive from people, but are having trouble keeping up with the volume.  We pass on to various charities about 75% of what we get in from donations.  We would appreciate it if you have general craft or partially used items to donate, that you find another place to give them to.  Before you bring donations, please give us a call and we can tell you if we have the room and manpower to accept them.

Our return policy:  Items are returnable within 30 days only if defective.  Thanks for your cooperation!  We are always happy to let customers try out punches or other tools before buying. 

We will be taking appointments on Tuesday, July 9th starting at 10:00 a.m.  Keep trying, thanks for your patience with our new system.  You MUST speak to a Craft Box staff member, please do not leave a message.  If you have had previous appointments recently, we will only take 2 from the same person in a one year period to keep it fair for everyone who’d like to bring items in.  We have recently updated the list of items that we will not pay for on our website, check it out here:  Products we buy

Whether you’re bringing a donation or a drop-off for compensation, please inspect your boxes for pests that may have taken up residence.  If we find evidence of bugs, moths, beetles or mice, we will immediately discard the items (if donated) or put outside and ask that they be picked up (if for compensation) and we will not accept future drop-offs from that person.  Thank you for your diligence and understanding.

Please, no dumping or donations left at the building after hours or without our knowledge.

In July, we will be collecting items for Urban Peak.  Founded in 1988, Urban Peak is the only non-profit organization in Denver that provides a full convergence of services for youth ages 15 through 24 experiencing homelessness or at imminent risk of becoming homeless. Our goal is to help these youth overcome real life challenges and become self-sufficient adults.

We do this by providing five essential services at little or no cost to the youth:

  • an overnight shelter
  • a daytime Drop-In Center
  • Street Outreach
  • Education & Employment programming
  • Supportive housing

Our goal is to meet youth where they are and to provide them with the assistance and support they need to become self-sufficient or obtain the necessary services they need to exit a life on the streets. Urban Peak’s programs and services are founded on the principles of trauma-informed care* and positive youth development and assist youth in reaching their potential and living a successful life off of the streets.

Here is a link to their wish list:Needs list.

We have a large variety of classes happening this July!  Please check under the Happenings tab here on our website to see all that is being offered.
All classes need reservations 2 days before the class so that the instructor can plan.  All classes require a minimum of 2 students in order for it to occur.  Classes must be paid for in advance.  If not paid in the store, please call with a credit card number.
