Creative Resale is a Michigan-based site focused on artistic upcycling. The startup doesn't sell works of art that are no longer wanted. Rather, it focuses specifically on art supplies that may no longer be needed but are not quite ready to be thrown out. The site lets users post and browse ads for supplies in their area or elsewhere.

The type of supplies listed on Creative Resale cover nearly all forms of art and include everything from paint to dried gourds. Sellers set their own prices and an ad costs $1.99 for 30 days, with bulk sellers receiving special discounts. Despite what the show "Hoarders" would have you think, many people (artists included) merely throw away their art supplies when they're finished with them. Creative Resale lets artists help other artists by selling their used supplies for a low cost, and it keeps unwarranted waste from landfills.
