I love creating with Scrabble tiles. Old Scrabble games, complete or partial, are always on my list of things to pick up when I’m out thrifting. But sometimes I hit a dry spell or just don’t have time to go from store to store. And I sure don’t want to find myself in the middle of a project and not be able to spell what I want because I’m missing ONE letter. Has that ever happened to you? So I did a little searching to find sources online and today I’m sharing with you my complete list of where to buy Scrabble tiles. Leave a comment and let me know where you buy yours!

Before I get started with my list, let me show you how I store my Scrabble tiles. This is an old slide storage box that I found at a flea market. I store the tiles alphabetically so I can find them quickly and see which letters I need to buy.
Where to Buy Scrabble Tiles for Crafting
Garage Sales and Thrift Stores
Scrabble games are getting harder and harder to find at garage sales and thrift stores. Probably because everyone’s buying them to craft with! I used to find them all the time for 25c. Now I’m usually paying $2-3 for a game. I never check to see if they’re complete since I won’t be playing with them.
Vintage Shops, Antique Shows, Flea Markets
This is my favorite source for buying Scrabble tiles. Occasionally you can find bags of tiles for sale but my favorite is when you can buy them individually. This is perfect for picking up some of those letters you use most often. I’m always running out of V’s!
I found these extra large Scrabble tiles at the Mes Amis Vintage Market.
I love buying on Etsy when I can. This way I’m supporting other small businesses like me.
There are even Etsy sellers who will sell individual tiles and let you choose the letter! This is life-changing. Well, maybe not really life-changing, but it certainly makes my crafting life easier. At the time I’m writing this there are prices starting at 25 cents!!! Read the listings carefully, some are tiles from other games, some are just a mix of letters and some are made of plastic. Which would still work for many projects but I just didn’t want you to be surprised. You can always send a message to the Etsy sellers to clarify, too.
- maroon Scrabble tiles on Etsy
- blue Scrabble tiles on Etsy
- black Scrabble tiles on Etsy
- Scrabble racks on Etsy
I was excited to find out that these were also available on Amazon. That’s because we started using Amazon Prime a couple of years ago and we get free two-day shipping. (For most items… make sure you look for the “Amazon Prime” symbol.) We usually order books, electronics, home decor, or household items that we can’t find locally. But now I can also buy craft supplies!
You can try a free 30-day trial of Amazon Prime by clicking the link below. Then check out the Scrabble tiles they have…. LOTS of color options. But again, read the description carefully. Some are plastic or from other games.
I use wood tiles for most of the Scrabble projects I do. But I just ordered some of the colored plastic tiles to try them out. I’ll give you a review later.
- lime green wood
- plastic – These come in MANY more colors!!!
- Scrabble racks
I don’t usually buy much from Ebay. But if that’s where you like to shop online, you can find Scrabble tiles there, too.
