2015 Crown Heights Holiday Stroll

2015 Crown Heights Holiday Stroll published on No Comments on 2015 Crown Heights Holiday Stroll


Let’s get our holidays on, kids! The 2015 Crown Heights Holiday Stroll is coming at ya on Saturday, December 19th! There are seven venues participating this year on both the north and south sides of Eastern Parkway. We’ll each have sales, events and/or refreshments planned throughout the day.

There will be raffle prizes from everyone! Each venue is expected to donate a $25+ prize. Shoppers get a free raffle ticket with each $25 purchase, so multiple purchases mean multiple tickets.


Tintype on Parquet

Reclaimed Home has donated a tintype backed on painted 6×6 parquet tile as our prize. It’s ready to hang and made from 100% recycled material.

We’ll have wine and prosecco until we run out. Also offering 10% discounts on all handmade gift items.

And then there’s this:

It’s a tough thing to juggle closing down the shop while rockin the holiday season, but anything that is not handmade and not claimed by Reclaimed Home or friends of Reclaimed Home needs to go. In other words, MASSIVE liquidation sale going on all weekend long! So, please do try to stop by to at least toast us out as Sunday, December 20th will be our last day open to the public.


Cute gift cards from Lady J!

Whats going at at Lady J +1? Stop by on Stroll Saturday and enjoy a free sample of Tay Tea while you shop.

For the raffle they will be donating a gift card to the store in the amount of $30.


Owl & Thistle will be raffling a $25 gift card or gift box.


Shoestring Press is raffling off $30 gift certificate. They will have a Kids and Families Workshop running from 2-4, in which they teach parents and children together how to make prints of various kinds. They’ll also have members working all day (and happy to talk to passerby about their art and printmaking in general), and their wide and weird selection of art by members, affordably priced and ready to take home.

Also participating:

Butter & Scotch

Suzette Lavalle

Lifestyle Statement

Elements Athletics pulled out of the event after the above flyer was created if you’re scratching your head over seeing 8 participants on the flyer but only 7 here.

Cyber Monday Coupon Code!

Hope y’all had a great Thanksgiving without too much drama. After having worked my arse off for the Small Business Saturday event and going right back to the shop on Sunday (Big thanks to those who came out!!), I am spending the day working from home in my pajamas.

You too? Or perhaps your body is at work but your mind is not there?

In any case, it’s Cyber Monday. Here’s a 10% off coupon code for today only at Reclaimed Home online. If you’re local and it’s giving you shipping costs, just shoot me a convo and I’ll deduct that if you want to pick up. It’s even good for gift certificates if you really don’t want to put the effort in. But keep in mind that we will no longer be a brick and mortar as of the end of December…so the gift certificate will only be good for small handmade items at the start of 2016.

A Coupla Things in Brooklyn This Weekend

A Coupla Things in Brooklyn This Weekend published on No Comments on A Coupla Things in Brooklyn This Weekend


In the tradition of over stretching ourselves, we’re going to be in two places at once this weekend.

Well, the first place is the shop. But here’s what’s so special about that…. We’re offering a 20% off on everything in the shop for The Total Crown Heights Immersion. Not taking part in the immersion? No worries. It’s too complicated to offer the discount to some, so we’re offering it to everyone! The immersion is on Saturday, but why not keep the discounts going the whole weekend?


On Sunday, we’ll be taking part in a pop up shop at Delia’s Lounge in Bay Ridge. It’s 12-5, so come, get drunk and spend all your money. Delia’s makes fun cocktails with umbrellas and plastic animals and stuff!! Apart from us, there will be some other extreeeemely talented makers there. The guy who owns Delia’s IS Brooklyn Bowls, so there’s that. Also participating is Reuse America, Urban Chandy, Yarona Jewelry Designs and Circa Vintage House.

Free Doggy Fitness Class Saturday!

Free Doggy Fitness Class Saturday! published on No Comments on Free Doggy Fitness Class Saturday!


Go Fetch Run has been going and running all winter long. Through rain and sleet and snow and…well, when temperatures dipped below 20 degrees, the class was called off. Hubby and I braved it out with very few other suckers willing to endure the frigid torture. Now that Spring is in the air, the pooch-in-tow workout will be much more pleasant!

Instructor/owner Angi is offering a free class this Saturday morning to get people going again. We’ve been meeting at Grand Army Plaza because it’s been snow free, but we may actually get to run around in the park this time!

Go Fetch Run involves interval workout with your dog. Boot campy circuit training in the great (or sometimes not so great) outdoors. We’ll be there with our two misbehaved mutts. Please join us! RSVP here.

Salvo Fair 2015

Before you Americans get excited, the great summer salvage festival called “Salvo Fair” takes place in England. I got SUPER excited to see it’s going to be in June when I’ll be on that side of the pond, and then super let down when I realized I’ll be missing it by a couple of weeks.

What is this salvage fair and why don’t we have one in the U.S.? I can’t answer the latter, but Salvo Fair consists of about 80 exhibitors from all over Europe, sellers of architectural salvage, antiques, reclaimed building materials and upcycled creations. I know, right?!

Dates are June 27-29th, 2015. Check out the website for more info.

LIC Moving Sale: Save the Date!

LIC Moving Sale: Save the Date! published on 2 Comments on LIC Moving Sale: Save the Date!


We’re coordinating the moving sale of an office loft that’s loaded with vintage and antique furnishings. Save the date!  The sale will be held on January 23rd, 24th and 25th. Dates may be subject to change, so please add yourself to the mailing list or join the Facebook event page. Of course, we’ll be updating the blog as well.

The exact address will be announced the week of the sale.

The business has been in that particular location for 15 years, so there are multiple vintage desks, filing cabinets and chairs. If you’re into old school computer and printing equipment, there’s plenty of that too! The owner of the company also started collecting architectural salvage and furnishings for a future home restoration, so there are many residential items as well.

We’ve only touched upon the big stuff as there is a lot to move out of the way before identifying what’s for sale, but we wanted to give you a sneak peek. More to follow! Stay tuned.
