Rubber is not the only thing you will find in this old fashioned but amazing resource. If you need foam for cushions, a mat for yoga, heavy duty floor matting used in doorways or kitchens, rubber hose, or anti vibration pads underneath your stereo, this is the place.

We use Canal Rubber every time we make a headboard (instructions here) and always find new uses for the many materials they supply. Don’t be put off as the proprietors can be a little grumpy, they always seem to smile in the end. MGR
