Get crafty with unorthodox art supplies at Tinkertopia

One person's recycling is another person's craft material.

SEATTLE — Tinkertopia is full of wares you wouldn’t expect to find at the average art supply store. Tinkertopia accepts donations of scraps, odds, and ends from local businesses and re-imagines them as alternative art supplies anyone can use to make a craft straight out of their imagination. 

Kids or crafters of any age can pick out items or buy pre-made kits and mess around with the supplies during open tinker time at the store. Co-owner R.R. Anderson joins New Day Northwest to show us how to make unique creations out of the kits you can find at their store.

Stop by Tinkertopia at, 1914 Pacific Ave, Tacoma, for some tinker-time or schedule your child's next birthday party there for an unforgettable crafting experience. 

Watch New Day Northwest 11:00 weekdays on KING-TV Ch.5 or streaming live on KING5.com. Connect with New Day via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram.
