Thrifting is still trendy and for those who love DIY, this can take on a rewarding hobby in the form of UPCYCLING! This is the process of converting old materials into something useful and often beautiful.
At auction, there are items which come in to be sold featuring a few holes here and there, maybe scratches on wood or broken things. The reason why you find these things at auction is because they are still valuable even with their flaws.
Auction is a cheaper way of finding items to upcycle, turning the unwanted into additions for your home or profit. Upcycling is hardly new as people have been repurposing items for ages but it’s new lease of life is so welcomed.
Raw materials are so expensive but there is a lot to be said for a process that takes what’s already there and giving it a new life either for the aesthetic or the added value. It has such a positive impact on the environment.
You can upcycle anything from bottles, cans, newspapers, milk cartons, tires, suitcases, jeans, you name it. If you no longer have a use for it, upcycle it!
Come through to our auction floors and find goods to give new life. Join the movement and let your creativity reign.
