What kind of stuff can you buy at Orinoco?
Orinoco is full of resources and tools for arts, crafts, DIY and gardening to inspire your projects. some are sold by the pick ‘n’ mix bag where as others are individually priced, so whatever your budget there’s something for you!
Stuff by the bag
These resources are often unusual, made from all kinds of materials and sold at £3 per bag to non-members and £1.5o per bag to members. You’ll find fabrics, foam, glass and plastic bottles, odd shaped plastic bits and items we can’t possibly describe (oh yeah and pieces for robots of course).
Vintage, Used and New Tools
A fundamental part of any project is having the tools for the job, but we know tools can be expensive. We stock standard used tools, beautiful vintage tools, reconditioned garden tools and new decorating equipment so that we have options at every price. Cliff is our dedicate volunteer who carefully renovates our garden spades, forks and hand tools. They sell for £10 for a fork or spade and £4 for hand tools and are often fitted with a new handle and repainted.
Our community paint offer is currently undergoing change. We are working to redesign the systems we have in place to process secondhand paint and so we don’t have as much on offer as we have had in the past. Once we have designed new slick systems for doing the messy work of processing the paint without making too much mess our offer of paint will be back! We are currently only accepting donations of full tins.
Individually Priced Stuff
Some of our stock is either new, really special, in short supply or worth more and so we individually price these items. Among this stuff is nice craft supplies new and used but also some beautiful vintage items.
