We have a store out here that I believe may be truly unique. It's called Leftovers and it's all about recycling for craft projects. It's mainly set up for teachers and scout leaders to get recycled supplies for craft projects but it is also open to the public. You can take in all kinds of "leftovers" like egg cartons, toilet paper rolls, leftover yarn and other craft supplies and on and on and on. You can also buy things by the bagful. (Teachers can get it free) They also have activities and classes for kids and adults. It's a wonderful place, I collect bags of things to take there and buy a lot of fabric and yarn for my charity projects there. If you live anywhere near St. Charles MO you need to check it out and if not maybe you or someone can start something similar where you live.
