Reuse & Repurpose: Map It!

I can really get my head around the way Brooklyn Industries, a maker of inexpensive men's and women's apparel, always seems to have amazing windows that creatively show how to take others' castoffs and turn them into eye-pleasing displays.

The current vitrine does not disappoint. The papier mâché globe heads greeting passers-by are so cheery and unexpected that they make me think of third grade craft projects or the the silly Globey character on Pee Wee's Playhouse.

Made from map pieces randomly formed into an orb, it doesn't matter if Australia is where Arizona should be, or if Cancun ends up at the North Pole. These brand ambassadors offer a world vision that isn't barred by borders or race, and seem to welcome anyone who feels like they want to hang out on Planet Earth for a while.

Always Frugal, Always Fabulous!

The Elegant Thrifter
