You made that out of what?!

At the ReStores we're all about repurposing.... from paper to bottles, furniture and buttons, we know true repurposers when we see them. That being said, I have to toot the horns of a few of our local artists and artisans who participated in the Mooresville ReStore's  Artisan Fair last Saturday. We had 24 wonderful vendors from the Lake Norman area who created their own wares by hand, including furniture, jewelry, games, home decor, food, and more!

Here are a few of my favorites:


The talented girls from Alta~Cation spent months preparing this dress created only from bubble wrap and Yuengling bottle caps. Talk about repurposing!

Mo's Arts & Crafts

This girl is very unique! Each piece is one-of-a-kind,  made from deconstructed vintage and antique jewelry.


Paper is Playful Papyrus' passion! Using paper she creates art, but lovely and functional. From dresses to bowls, earrings and paintings, this girl knows her paper!

Being a beginning repurposer, I know the hard work and dedication it takes to follow your passion and to create something out of somebody's nothing. So I give kudos to these women and all the participants in the Mooresville ReStore's Artisan Fair!
