Upcycling around Reynoldburg

Upcycling is a term that’s gained popularity in the last decade, and it’s a great way to reuse materials, reduce our consumption, keep old items out of landfills, and conserve the water and energy required to produce new raw materials. 

For the crafty-at-heart, it can provide a creative outlet as well. You get to add truly unique items to your home and wardrobe, celebrate older craftsmanship, and pat yourself on the back for saving some cash! Here are some sources for upcycling and thrifting around Reynoldsburg. If you live at the Traditions at Slate Ridge townhomes, most of these shops are right down the street.
