Reuse & Repurpose: Props on the House!




As style editor for Maxim magazine, part of my job is to preview products months before they are offered to consumers. Quite often in my visits to showrooms and presentations, I'm treated to displays that offer novel uses for vintage and thrift finds, such as this one for the eBay Holiday Collective, where nearly all the props came directly from eBay. 

Above, vintage sleds show off Billy Reid's all-white canvas carry-alls.



A stack of well-traveled suitcases is the focal point among Chris Benz home and lounge collection.



Ruffian's neckwear and scarves are hung from antique skis and ski poles.


Used ice skates set a wintery tone for Tibi's cozy pieces.



And wooden reindeer prance among Steven Alan's tech accessories.


Always Frugal, Always Fabulous,


The Elegant Thrifter
