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,

  1. They are wonderful! The thrift store sounds fantastic too.

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