What’s Old is New Again—The Business of Upcycling! Via #BusinessInSavannah | Heather E. Ohlman
Savannah businesses making a living from discarded materials. Every piece is different and bespoke.
#Upcycling is different than recycling because it increases an item’s worth or quality through reuse. The level of transformation varies by piece and practitioner.
Here is a list of proprietors who make magic from “junk”:
Fish Art Gallerie
Two Women and a Warehouse
Momma & Her Girls
Finders Keepers Furniture
Lily Bay Studio + Bazaar
