Reuse & Repurpose: Bright Ideas


A lamp from a Tonka toy? An illuminating Pachinko machine? That's exactly what I found on my recent visit to Film Biz Recycling and Prop Shop, a thrift store that sells castoffs from film, television and play productions.

Created by Red Hook, Brooklyn-based Dog Tag Designs , these unexpected, tossed-out objects, when outfitted with a little electrical wiring and a light bulb, have become shining examples of imagination and creativity.

Always Frugal, Always Fabulous,

The Elegant Thrifter

  2. Completely in love with both of these! But I'm a biased bright-thing-toy-lover type person...
