Yay! We’re working on some smaller merchandise that we can wholesale and easily ship for online sales. Some are completely put together by hand and the price unfortunately has to reflect hours of our time. We do want to have affordable smalls, but that means mass produced made in China stuff that we simply embellish. You know the old saying… You get what you pay for.
We are proud of our 100% recycled re-made in America (heck, right here in Brooklyn, USA) wares.
Wanna take a peek? Ok, sure!
The table runner above was made from 100% recycled plaster lath. We love lath! It’s totally free and you can find it in most renovation dumpsters. That’s the good news. The bad news is that each individual piece has to be sanded on both sides, cut and sealed, especially if it’s going to be around food. At 72″ long, this runner took about a full day to make. We’re not complaining. We’d love to make tons more of these! Actually, we’re adding a set of lath placemats to the inventory this week. This runner is $280. Lengths and designs will vary in price.
Speaking of placemats, we’ve been working on sets of mats and coasters. These are made from the bottoms of discarded antique dresser drawers. We found the wood to be the perfect thickness. Designs are protected by resin. They are f*ckin’ amazing, if we may say so. Set of 4 placemats and 4 coasters is $180.
This is the less funky, “classier” set of the two we did. Crazy how well it matches that table. Too bad the table just sold yesterday. Also, $180. More info here.
These recycled door and lath serving trays have been selling pretty well at $75. We think they’re going mostly as gifts but a few folks are keeping them for their own homes. Even the handles are vintage. Only the paint and resin are new.
This particular mirror was an Ikea hack job. We hope to find or build multiple recycled frames, but in an effort to go with a few uniform pieces that were inexpensive, we caved and embellished a new object. The legos are second hand. $35
Finally, more “new” items. The salt and pepper shakers were a close-out at Ikea. If we buy new, we like to purchase liquidations so we’re not completely supporting production of inexpensive labor. Anyway, at least you know they are clean! We have several of these, all with different designs. $25 apiece.
