New Lockers!

Our space is looking fresh and new after our weekend trip to Arcanum, Ohio. The "Arcanum Collection" as we are calling it, is now available for purchase. We will unveil other new items throughout this entire week, along with some of the stories that came with purchasing them. Hope everyone is having a great Monday!!

A Trailer Full of Goodies...

We sure hope so!!! On the road again early tomorrow morning. If all goes well we will be bringing back two trailer loads and packing every inch of the car with new items for you. Also, this photograph is a result of Dusty forgetting to take a photograph during the day. He desperately wants to think its kind of cool looking but, not so much :)

Natalie's Recycled Style, part 2

As promised, here are a few more pictures from Natalie's home. We love the way she used our wash basin as a toy bin for her children. The wash basins have so many different uses both inside the home and out and they always get noticed. Check out our pictures to see the one that we currently have in stock.

This desk didn't come from us but it was something else found at the Carmel Old Town Antique Mall. And a great find it was!

One last (slightly different) photo of our famous red fan. We hope you enjoyed seeing some of our items used inside the home. We have lots of new items to share with you in the coming weeks as we head into spring and we'll be announcing a new location to purchase recycled style very soon!  :)

Natalie's Recycled Style, part 1

Last Friday we were lucky enough to get the opportunity to visit the home of Natalie, a customer who has made a lot of use out of recycled style in her home. She let us take photographs so that we could show some great examples of how to use some of the items that we sell. As she told us, our items have created a very unique feel in her home and she is always being asked by her guests where she found such interesting home decor :)

The red trunk was a favorite of ours as you couldn't create something that looked exactly like this if you tried. It is also a great height so it could be used here to display other decor items as it is here.

This wood bar stool was a wreck when we first found it but the unique legs and industrial look was way too much to pass up. It's all cleaned up now and looks amazing. The vintage camera is a great touch as well.

High above on a loft space in the living room, Natalie created this incredible mecca of recycled style. The red fan was definitely one of our most talked about pieces and it looks awesome in this setting!

Upon closer look you'll notice some shabby chic white chairs, a metal milk bin and a wood crate, all of which came from us. The added touch of the educational law books is really cool. We have similar looking medical books in our space right now for anyone interesting in doing the same.

We want to again thank Natalie for letting us take these photos. Tomorrow we will share a couple of additional items that she has elsewhere in her home. Come back and check it out!

Dusty finds Groucho

Check out the vintage Groucho Marx pin that we scored in our own mall! Dusty is an avid fan of the Marx Brothers and couldn't resist purchasing this nugget of entertainment history gold. And now, a clip from the classic film, Animal Crackers. Have a great weekend everyone!

Barn Wood Mirror with Shelf

We were going through some old photos today and thought this interesting piece deserved the spotlight. How would you use it in your home?

Green Table

This would make a perfect table for an art room. The cubbies at the bottom are on both sides of the table. We're also excited about our new megaphone that's sitting on top of the table :)

Little Lockers

These little lockers are a great way to infuse a little industrial style into your home. Use them to store books, DVDs, homework, art supplies or any other small item that you want to keep track of.

They work equally as great on the ground...

Hugh Leeman

I took this photograph while I was walking through Broad Ripple a couple of weeks ago. Today I finally got around to researching a bit more and found the great article about the artist and the very unique work that he does. Check it out... HERE

Due to the icy/snowy storm that has swept across the nation we are in what you might call, Iceland... figuratively speaking, of course. If we were literally in Iceland we would be having a party in this cool little igloo :)  Enjoy the snow day everyone!
