As well as a source for great salvaged materials, the RE Store (Ballard, 1440 NW 52nd St., 206.297.9119; re-store.org. Also in Bellingham.) designs furniture—from cabinets to outdoor arbors—made from reclaimed materials in its “REvision Division.”
It’s a cornucopia of cool stuff at Second Use (SoDo, 3223 Sixth Ave. S; 206.763.6929; seconduse.com), where, on any given day, you might uncover that perfectly authentic Craftsman door or a vintage picnic basket ($65).
