Opening last September – with the help of an indiegogo fundraiser – Yon has been getting donations non-stop and has develuped a relationship with the community. ReTreasure isn’t like any typical art studio – all of their materials are used, reclaimed, reusable, and donated items. So please bring your kids and create them into something new, keeping planet Earth clean and full of color and culture! Oh, and they also have a cute bunny. ReTreasure is located at:
