The Great Tacoma Puzzle Give Back

Let's work together to raise some funds and food for our local #253 food banks! Bring us your gently used puzzles and some non-perishable food, and we'll email you a $5 gift card to use at The Curious Bear or Paper Luxe. 

We'll put your puzzles in their own quarantine for several days, then we'll add them to our pre-owned puzzle inventory (they will be clearly listed as pre-owned in a special section of our website). All profits from the sale of these puzzles will be donated to St. Leo's Food Connection and Emergency Food Network, two local food banks. 

Please, please only donate puzzles in gently used or new condition, with ALL pieces accounted for.
