We Have a New Home at Frogbox!

OSF has moved to a new home. We are very pleased to be partnering with Frogbox! Doug Burgoyne of Frogbox is a community-minded, socially responsible entrepreneur. He and his team have kindly arranged to sub-lease some light industrial office space to Our Social Fabric and we moved in on Saturday!

The new space is a really exciting change for OSF and it’s wonderful that we have so much community support to help us do it. Last Saturday we had a big work party at the storage locker to organize all the donations from the last few months, pack up the best of it, and move it to the new space. Many thanks to Patty of Pure Magnolia gowns and Kent from Patch who volunteered their time and effort to our very hasty move, and also to prospective board members Andrew and Katharine who pitched in a considerable amount of energy and showed their commitment! Thanks also to Recycling Alternative for donating a truck to us to move with in the afternoon.

Best of all, we will be able to hold sales inside our new space, which was a challenge with our previous storage locker arrangement. Check back soon to find out when our next sale will be and learn more about the new donations and inventory receiving policies we are developing.

  1. do u guys recycle faux leather belts? I reuse the studs off them and they are not really thirft store material now. Would love to find them a home!

    • Hi Christine. Thanks for your inquiry. Unfortunately, at this time we are only able to accept squares and bolts of clean, saleable fabric and cannot accept the belts. We recommend that people post bulk quantities of deconstructed items (belts, tents, backpacks…you name it) on Craigslist. This is the best way to get in touch with a keen artist who wants exactly what you have to offer! For those who have intact items like clothing or blankets for donation we will not accept those either, and we recommend you send them along to local shelters or secondhand stores.
