In-Store Shopping

Ever see a teal Beethoven bust next to cat tarot cards at a big-box? You might at The Idea Store, though!

In fact, the stuff you find here will make your project extraordinary. Whatever it used to be, you can give it new life as part of a painting, sculpture, zine material, love letter, collage, jewelry, clothing, anything that inspires you.


Here’s how it’s sold:

By the Pound

A LOT of our items are sold by the pound. Depending on the day, you’ll find metal, wood, fabric, paint, fine art paper, or even leather sold for way less than you’d expect.

Priced as Marked

Other items are sold individually or in bundles. Sometimes we have just one of something, other times we have thousands. If you’re looking for something special or a huge quantity, give us a call. We’ll do everything we can to help you out.

Special Sales

Occasionally, something pretty remarkable comes our way. Like, an unbelievable collection of art books, a 1967 Olympia Deluxe typewriter, or a complete vintage tea set. We bring in everything from billboard vinyl to anatomy models. You can also check out our “Wall of Intrigue” for a sometimes-quirky, sometimes-creepy, always ever-changing mix.

Our inventory is always evolving, so check in regularly. You never know what you’ll find!
