This is a friendly street

Each time we're here new people stop by.  They ask if we need help, when we'll open, what we'll have in this space.  Usually in that order.  It's a great street, it's great to be next to Sweet Moses, and it's even greater to be filling our temporary home with great artwork. 

When people ask, we explain ourselves a little something like this: 

Collective Upcycle is a pop-up boutique of reused art & handmade goods by Cleveland artists. We're taking over the big & beautiful storefront in the NearWest Loftworks building at 6710 Detroit Avenue this summer from Saturday June 11-Sunday, July 3rd.  We're bringing together 30 Cleveland-area artists & innovators who repurpose existing resources & leftover materials and transform them into something new, functional, beautiful, or whimsical. In an enthusiastic demonstration of Cleveland's bustling creative reuse economy, you'll find repurposed jewelry, tote bags, flowers, furniture, candles, decorations, photo frames, stationary, wind chimes, magnets, accessories, art and more in Collective Upcycle. Stay tuned for workshops and activities being planned in the space.
Come back! We open June 11th!
