Last year I discovered what is now my favorite resource for creative materials. It's called the East Bay Depot for Creative Re-Use and it has all kinds of scrap/used/salvaged paper and craft stuff! You can buy paper by the inch (stacked) and find book bindings, fabric, beads & vintage jewelry. It's fantastic and (I'm sorry to say) I don't know of any other place like it. If you do know of other places that are devoted to reuse of craft materials, please post!
