Welcome to
The Share Shop

The Share Shop is a community organisation run entirely by volunteers in Newcastle, Australia.

You can find us here!

 

Our Library of Things enables members to borrow things instead of buying them.

Things to borrow include tools, camping equipment, and party supplies.

 

We exist to help folks live more and consume less.

Membership is available from as little as $1 AUD a week!

Why Share?

Is your house full of items that you don’t really need?

How many times have you bought a thing, to only use it once or twice?

Us too.

That’s exactly why we've created The Share Shop - A Library of Things.

We want to help you save space and spend less on things you don’t need.

We want to cut waste and stop useful things ending up as landfill.

We want you to get more from life while consuming less.

 

Borrowing instead of buying also offers the opportunity to undertake a project, or test a new hobby or skill before investing in equipment.

As part of the Pachamama community we work with other groups to provide a vibrant hub where you can learn and share.
