I got the images above from this article in Maine Today. Go and get some art! “Proceeds from this fundraiser benefit Goodwill services across New England; helping people achieve personal stability, engage in the community, and create a more sustainable environment.”
This image above and the first image in this post can be found on my decorate Pinterest board with links back to the original source (sometimes).
My new favorite junk shop is the Antiques Junkie on 125 Brewery Lane in Portsmouth, NH. T.F. Sloan, the proprietor, has created an inviting space with unique pieces at great prices. Check it out — just don’t buy the blue bench or the red cart. Save those for me.
All You magazine. Issue 10, October 18, 2013. Page 13.
My sweater blanket was featured in the October issue of All You magazine. I like the fine print at the bottom of the page — “This idea comes from Jennifer Moore in Kittery, Maine, who blogs about sustainable style at recovergirl.wordpress.com.” That’s better than a stick in your eye. xo jam
I was cruising craigslist/newhampshire/furniture to find a side table or whatever. I came across this person in Hillsboro, NH that makes outdoor furniture out of solid hardwood pallets. I like the primitive look.
I am so inspired by Community of Athens, Georgia. I found out about them through Pinterest but it looks like word is spreading quickly about them because of an article in the New York Times about the city of Athens, Georgia.
This is how they describe themselves on their website: “Community is a boutique centered around the concept of sustainability without the sacrifice of style. Opened in 2010 by Sanni Baumgärtner, Community seeks to bring chic clothing to our clients while encouraging them to buy locally and sustainably. Community Service is our in-house brand of redesigned vintage clothing. Designed by owner Sanni Baumgärtner as a way to merge vintage fabrics and designs with current fashion.”
I especially love this Denim revamp event they hosted. What a great way to bring the community together and promote sustainable style.
