Repurpose General Store is located in the Centretown area of Ottawa. We feature local artists and artisans who create upcycled and recycled products. But our favourite part? The BeadWorks jewelry created by the youth who access Operation Come Home. BeadWorks provides youth with creative outlets, some income and a safe place for them to spend their afternoons.
