Tiny's Lambertville: Recycle, Repurpose, Reuse

The weather is warming and Tiny is crawling out of her hole and back to the shop!  Given the brutal winter we've had, I'm thinking the shop will be closed from November through February each year -- Tiny's just not that tough to brave snow, ice and 20 degree temps, and neither, quite frankly, are shoppers.  But now that the sun's returning, be on the lookout for a March sale! . . .  details to come.

For now, Tiny wants to share these great eco-friendly finds!  One of her suppliers rescues old wooden window frames and repurposes them into chalkboards, bulletin boards and whiteboards:

I love how these retain the window hardware.  What a funky addition to the kitchen!

Also funky? Soda crate wagons! Back in olden times, before Target and Walmart, people did a lot of "make-do" around the house, especially when it came to kids' toys.  They'd take an old Pepsi or Coke crate, add wheels, and create a perfectly respectable little wagon:

Currently, Tiny's using this one to haul the girls, but come spring, picture it on your porch, filled with two pots of red geraniums.  TOO. CUTE.  Tiny has several of these wagons coming to the shop, but can't help but keep one for herself to store magazines, catalogs, etc.

Think you're "Green"?  Put your money where your mouth is!  Shop Tiny's!
