Second Use offers a series of three Handmade Markets each year as a means of cultivating community and giving opportunity to artists, without whom Second Use would not be sustainable. Each market has a distinct theme (Holiday, Homegrown, and Reclaimed) as well as a variety of complimentary attractions including a storewide sale, food, drinks, and activities.
Second Use diverts waste from the landfill through salvaging reusable materials from homes and commercial spaces slated for remodel or demolition. We rely on the creativity of the community the repurpose these materials and recognize you, the artists and makers of our community, as the re-visionaries that shape the future of reuse. Our annual markets are our way of offering exposure to you in return, while giving the public another opportunity to shop small.
