Shop Around the Corner with Texas Art Asylum
Located in the city of Houston, the Texas Art Asylum is a haven for those looking to upcycle old materials into new and exciting craft projects. Their large inventory of reusable materials comes to them by way of donations from businesses and people who would like to creatively recycle the clutter they’re finished with. Whether you’re looking to offer your materials for a creative reuse or hoping to walk away with your craft project’s necessary ingredient, Texas Art Asylum is here to help. The store offers assistance to offices and other businesses wishing to get rid of everything from old file folders to rubber stamps. In their store, Texas Art Asylum holds classes on creative reuse from some of Houston’s most acclaimed artists.
