The Shop

Regina's Art Supply Exchange Shop's first location was at the CARFAC Saskatchewan Regina office we have NOW MOVED to the 2nd Floor of the Creative City Centre at 1843 Hamilton Street. Find our hours of operation on our About page.

You must be a member in order to access the shop, except on special non-member days (see our Upcoming Events for these events). Memberships are FREE.

Follow the flow chart below to better understand how the Shop functions:



  • Members can buy a punch card with 10 punches for $10 (no limit to how many you can buy a year). One punch is equal to $1.

How to Purchase

You can buy a $10 punch card by visiting RASE's Shop only. Punch cards are only available during open hours (see our About page for hours of operation). CASH ONLY.

How the Punch Cards and Bags Work

When you arrive at the Shop, you choose the bag size that suits your shopping needs (the bag size you have your materials in when you go to get your punch card stamped, will be the amount you are charged). You can fill up these bags with any of the donated materials on our shelves. Items that cannot fit into the standard bag sizes can be purchased based on the colour dot system listed at RASE (see above in the flow chart).

Size of each bag type = Punch card value = H x L x W
  • Small = 1 punch = 8.25" x 4.5" x 3"
  • Medium = 4 punches = 13.75" x 7" x 4.5"
  • Large = 10 punches = 12.5" x 16" x 6"
If you have brought your own tote bag, you must use one of our standard sizes to gather your supplies from the shelves. Only once your punch card has been stamped by a staff member, you may transfer the items to your own bag and return our bag to the shelf. RASE recommends you bring your own bag OR reuse our paper bags by bringing them in every time you shop.

What Do We Have in the Shop?

A wide array of stuff from our List of Accepted Items! However, since our stock is second hand donations and people fill up a bag to take home supplies, we do not have a list of what is currently available on the shelves at any given moment. The folks who monitor our Facebook and e-mail are also not in the shop each week and will not know current donations, so, please do not e-mail or message us on Facebook if you are looking for specific supplies. We hope you have time to stop by and discover some secondhand goodies!

Please note:

  • Punch cards cannot be stored at RASE.
  • RASE is not responsible for lost or stolen punch cards.
  • All items are sold "as is" and no refunds of punches will be administered under any circumstances
