MIDDLE SCHOOL STUDENTS UNIFY THROUGH ART
Resource Depot and the Conniston Middle School art department join together for a creative project called “Common Threads”. Displayed at Resource Depot’s GalleRE, “Common Threads” is a student art exhibition representing unity and diversity through different colors, styles, and textures of fabric that were found in Resource Depot donations. Seeing all these mismatched materials and how they work together reminds us that the same is true for people.
“Common Threads” is now open through March 15th
Admission is free, with a suggested donation of $5.00
Tuesdays and Thursdays 11 am – 5 pm
Wednesdays 11 am – 7 pm, and Saturdays 9 am – 2 pm

We fill minds, not landfills. We turn almost 200,000 pounds of reusable stuff a year into classroom and alternative art materials, equipping educational programs, public workshops, and the weekend tinkerer with all sorts of unusual and inspiring resources to build, make and create with in Palm Beach County.
We have one focus in mind: inspiring individuals to make a difference in our world through environmental awareness and to participate in the ripple effect of taking small, but immediate action towards making your community a better place.
Tinker Lab Area
Resource Depot was founded. Members from the Solid Waste Authority of Palm Beach County,Children’s Services Council of Palm Beach County, the Palm Beach County School District and Florida Power & Light, came together to divert clean, safe, reusable materials that would otherwise be destined for the landfill into the hands of people who can use them for educational and artistic purposes.
After several changes of location in the intervening years, we finally found the ideal home: 2510 Florida Avenue, off Belvedere in West Palm Beach. We made our big move in the fall allowing our role in the community to expand. We are still “the teacher place” but we are also SO MUCH MORE. We couldn’t be more proud of our space, and we invite you to visit any time during our shopping hours to check it out! Please note warehouse access policies.
