1334 Main St., our storefront hub in Over-the-Rhine, is an eclectic mix of art materials and resources. An experiment in creativity in itself, the shop is packed with colorful shelves of paints, fabric, wood, paper, pencils, glass, and an assortment of other useable project pieces. Our store offers a pay-what-you-want scale for all materials, ensuring that imagination and affordability can go hand-in-hand.

The space also serves as an exhibition gallery for a rotating collective of local community artists and friends. For more information about being a part of a future installation, please contact us here.


Material Donations

Our shop in acts as a drop-off center for all creative reuse donations. Indigo Hippo happily accepts all new and gently-used goods that can be repurposed into creative materials.

All donations taken in through our storefront location are cleaned, organized, sorted, merchandised and priced as low as possible to make creativity accessible for all.  

The proceeds from the sale of donated materials support Indigo Hippo’s storefront and programming.  



Our goal is to encourage our community to create things: more supplies means imaginative art-making.  We can’t do it without you, and neither can the artists who rely on reused items for their forms of expression. Creative reuse is the foundation of everything we do.


How to donate

We’re always accepting new or gently-used creative materials to restock our storefront. We happily receive donated items any time the 1334 Main St. storefront is open for business.
