Last Fridays with Etsy Labs

by

trashion3.jpgtrashion.jpgtrashion2.jpg I’ve mentioned before that the best thing about having a trash blog is that it has helped me connect with other trashies whom I might never otherwise have stumbled upon. Take Miss Malaprop, for example, a member of the Etsy Trashion Team who found everydaytrash while promoting her crew’s upcoming trunk show.

According to Miss M:

The Etsy Trashion Team is about visualizing beauty in unconventional
objects and materials. We fabricate art, jewelry, fashion and objects
for the home from used, thrown-out & found elements. For us, trashion is
a philosophy and an ethic. It encompasses environmentalism and
innovation, and respects the human creative and healing potential.

You can check out their work on their new online shop (ah, the Internet) or by stopping by the Etsy Labs this Friday for the first of a series of trunk shows (every last Monday of the month) featuring trash to treasure pieces.

Here are the deets on the sale event:

Etsy Labs in Brooklyn NYC. (325 Gold Street, Brooklyn NYC. A/C/F to Jay St *
B/M/Q/R to Dekalb) We will have recycled art, jewelry, clothing, home
décor & more for sale, plus there will be trashion-themed films,
make-your-own trashion activities and refreshments. The trunk show is
free and open to all ages, plus the first 25 people through the door
will receive a FREE trashion team gift bag. Attendees are requested to
RSVP via email at
rsvp@etsy.com.

I know I’ll be there. Not only is this right up my alley, but it’s walking distance to boot. Big ups to my trashies in the BK, hope to see you there.

UPDATE: This weekend’s sale is of another group’s stuff.  Still trashtastic.

    Hey, I just wanted to let you know that the Trashion trunk show is on Friday, July 27 – next month. They do a different street team each month though, so the one that is happening this Friday (June 29) is the Capitol Region Etsy Street Team’s show. They’re a great group of artists from the DC area. You can find out more here:
