Our paint is sold at incredibly discounted prices, starting from just £2 per litre!

We stock a variety of different paint makes, including many designer brands, however we are unable to promote brand names so you’ll have to visit the Scrapstore to see our secrets!

Where does the Paint come from?

We are part of a national scheme called Community RePaint, which helps to distribute leftover paint to 65 schemes in the UK.

The paint is donated by businesses (we do not take paint from individuals) who no longer need the paint. This is due to a variety of reasons such as the tin being damaged, excess stock or end of line colours.

In 2018 RePaint schemes diverted 433,250 litres of paint from landfill across the UK

Ragtag Colours

This is our NEW own brand of paint, made from mixing surplas paints.

We create a base by mixing together a number of tins of the same types of paint. We then add tints to them to create our range of colours.

This is great because it uses the small quantities of paint we collect, which are not enough for most project.
This paint is avaliable to purchase in  store or online for click and collect. Currently it can only be collected from Ragtag, but we hope to have a collection point in Kendal soon.
