FAQ:
What is Tinkertopia?  A: Tinkertopia is a Creative Reuse Center which you can also think of as an alternative arts and crafts supply store. Instead of throwing artsy materials in the dump, you can toss it to us knowing that your matter will have a new and exciting afterlife GUILT FREE!  FULL MATERIALS WANTED LIST HERE.   Heck, we'll even do pickups...see CALL2HAUL Program!  We (RR & Ms. Darcy) have even been awarded special creative endeavor status by the Spaceworks Tacoma program.

Spaceworks Tacoma is a joint initiative of the City of Tacoma and the Tacoma-Pierce County Chamber designed to activate empty storefronts and vacant space in Tacoma. The initiative makes no- and low-cost temporary space, training, and technical assistance available to artists, creative entrepreneurs, organizations, and community groups in order to nurture successful projects that transform Tacoma into a stronger, more active city.

Hope your staff is completely unionized with full benefits and middle class incomes. Also hope there isn't anything from China in your stock. I can't stand it when businesses follow the walmart model.
