This past weekend George and I went on the hunt for something to create a path in his mother’s backyard garden. We stopped in Build It Green which is treasure trove of salvaged building materials. A very large warehouse holds the bulk of the furniture, fixtures and lumber, some old, some new but all rescued from a landfill. There is an outdoor area with more odds and ends which is where we found a few dozen terracotta tiles for just a quarter each. We also snagged two remnants of granite.
Build it Green is a vintage lover’s dream as each little nook and cranny is filled with weathered beauty. If you’re a local New Yorker about to embark on a renovation, definitely check out Build It Green. Did I mention they are a not-for-profit organization? As George said, it’s a win win!
