We picked up these beakers from Build It Green! NYC this weekend. They provide us with an interesting alternative to the typical glass vase’s that we have and we created a set with the different sizes.
But Build It Green NYC is much more than recycled glass canisters. They specialize in re-used home elements such as doors, windows, water heaters, cabinets, and other miscellaneous building materials. This marble mantle caught our eye and can be had for a fraction of what it would cost to buy it new.
So the next time you’re in Queens stop by or seek out your own local salvage shop which is always much more interesting to browse than Home Depot.
