Mel and I volunteer with a group called Scrap DC, a creative reuse and recycling center that focuses on things that artists use. Working with them has opened my eyes to interesting ways items can be repurposed.
I’m doing a festival today with items from both my jewelry and scarf shops. I realized that I needed another display for earrings but didn’t want to have to spend a retail price. Looked around and found a metal CD stand and a roll of that foamy shelf liner. Attached the liner with some black cotton crochet thread. VOILA. A groovy place for earrings and all for less than $5.
