A word from our friends

It's an Upcycle Design Challenge! Hey Upcyclists, UnCommon Goods is looking for good upcycled designs and they've asked us to spread the word.  
Here's the opportunity: 


  • Grand Prize: $500 + UncommonGoods Vendor Agreement
  • They accept all sorts of materials as long as they are safe and animal-friendly. So no lead, leather, feathers, or pearls. They love unique materials, especially those that tell an interesting story, so don't forget to share your medium's tale with us in your product description.
  • Judges: Writer and Reporter Yuka Yoneda, Chief Design Junkie at TerraCycle: Tiffany Threadgould and UncommonGoods Associate Buyer for Home Decor Alexis Campagna.

Okay, we vow to communicate a little more loudly.  To post a little more frequently.  To upcycle a little more collaboratively.  To grow a little more collectively.   And to drop some roots a little more permanently.  ........Yeah, we said it, the P word.  In 2010 we opened as a pop-up and we still feel passionately about activating vacant space this way.   But now we get to be part of a bigger collaboration with creative reuse at its very center and we are opportunists, especially when a historic Cleveland neighborhood is at the center of a project.
We're partnering up with the Upcycle St. Clair project (a project of St. Clair Superior CDC in partnership with Nicole McGee of Plenty Underfoot and the Cleveland Flea), and we're moving on into the St. Clair neighborhood!  More details in the coming month(s)!  Will you join us as we take this big leap?!

Next to Colossal Cupcakes!  We can't wait to neighbor this cool business in such a hopping downtown location.  
Artist preview, work & prep party: Tuesday Nov. 20th, 6-8 pm artists & upcyclists only, we will provide some refreshments and together during this evening we will be making bags, making sure everything is tagged and everything looks great. It is also a great time for all the artists to meet one another! Hope you can make it! 
Grand Opening: Tuesday Nov. 27th  6-8pm !
Come one, come all, tell your mom, your friend, your neighbor, your neighbor's friend & your friend's mom! This will be our Grand Opening Party open for the public & we can't wait to share our new holiday digs with you all~
We'd love for artists & upcyclists to bring 1 dozen of their favorite Christmas Cookies! We will be providing Mulled Cider and non-alcholic Cider for the crowd!
We then will be open for business for the season with these hours:
Wednesdays 11:00 – 8:00
Thursdays 11:00 – 5:00
Fridays 11:00 – 5:00
Saturdays 11:00 – 5:00
Parking:
  • There is Euclid Ave. street parking along the both sides that is free for up to one hour right out side the store. 
  • There are 3 surface lots across from the Arcades on Prospect (2 “Arena Stadium Parking” lots and 1 called the “East 4th Surface” lot), and another small surface lot on E.4thand Prospect (next to Harry Buffalo). 
  • Parking ranges from about $2.50 for every 15 minutes to about $10 as a daily max. 
  • There is also parking in the surface lot across from City Tap (on Prospect – the lot is on the same side of the street as the Arcades). 
  • There’s a parking lot under the hotel that is above the Arcades, too, but we would venture to bet that parking is the most expensive of all these options.
  •  If you’re looking for cheaper options, we recommend street parking by CSU, or somewhere in the campus district area, and taking the Healthline down.  
  • We're right off the east 6th street Healthline stop, and a quick walk from the Rapid station at Tower City too!
Lots of holiday bustling is underway!...with questions, please send an email to: lauren@collectiveupcycle.com
