About Second Use

Second Use diverts waste from the landfill through salvaging reusable materials from homes and commercial spaces slated for remodel or demolition and selling it to the public at our SODO retail outlet.  We rely on the creativity of the community to repurpose these materials and preserve the history of the Puget Sound Region.  We recognize you, the artists and makers of our community, as the re-visionaries that shape the future of reuse. Our semiannual markets are our way of offering exposure to you in return, while giving the public an opportunity to shop small.  Previous markets have included two Handmade Holiday Markets, the Handmade & Homegrown Spring Market, and the Handmade & Reclaimed Fall Market. Each market has been attended by approximately 2,500 guests.
