These girls have it going on in their shop--they reuse and repurpose everything! They offer vintage finds, and one of a kind repurposed items. Here you will find everything from cool hand painted serving trays to roofing tiles turned chalkboards!
They have networked with local contractors, often getting donations of scrap material from them including paint, wood, tile, discarded furniture and windows! They have also links to paint stores allowing them to obtain wall paper books, and "oops" paint gallons. They even obtain scrap fabric from interior designers and make every effort possible to re-use something that would just be put to a landfill.
They are trying to partner with a local not-for-profit group to teach local people how to repurpose, and reuse materials that are donated to them!
