A Reuse Fair is a one-day community event where unwanted but reusable household items are collected and passed on to charities, non-profits, artisans and schools that need them.
Every Reuse Fair collects a slightly different list of items based on the requests they receive. Examples of typical items include: milk jug lids, old bedding, onion bags, keys, spices, corks, broken jewelry, nylons and old calendars.
