Meet Holiday Heap Vendor, Recycled Rowhouse
List your shop name and give a brief description of your work and process.
Recycled Rowhouse is a project that is interested in continuing the stories contained in old and unwanted things by recombining them into functional objects that encourage environmental sustainability.
We roam the streets on garbage day and hit garage sales looking for our next piece. We transform unwanted desks, tables, doors, moldings and much more into functional and unique objects for the home and garden.
Where do you find inspiration?
We are inspired by the pieces that we discover. The more chipped and falling apart it is, the more we love it. We also look to the architectural diversity of the rowhouses of Philadelphia, where we live, for inspiration.
Other than Holiday Heap, where can we find you for purchases (online or stores).
Our work can be found at our website, and throughout Pennsylvania at Heirloom Home and Studio, Greensgrow Farms and Anthropologie (online and Philadelphia Center City location).
