Handmade and Reclaimed Market – Second Use Building Materials and Salvage

The Handmade & Reclaimed Market is held from 10-4 on Saturday, September 21st in conjunction with our annual Fall Fest. This wildly popular event includes family friendly games, free food, a beer garden, a storewide sale, live screen printing, and more.

 

Something my son and I made many years ago in Baltimore. Salvaged from a bunch of sources!

This particular market is held to showcase the work of artists that use reclaimed and recycled materials. If your work does not upcycle or reuse material in any way, it does not qualify for the event, but we encourage you to apply to our other markets, which are listed on on our homepage.

LOCATION: The Handmade & Reclaimed Market will be hosted at our Seattle location at 3223 6th Avenue South, Seattle, WA 98134. All booths are indoors and vary in size from 5×7 to 7×7.

JURY: The show will be juried by a panel of (5) staff members for the benefit of both the makers and shoppers. It is our goal to offer a diverse mix of quality goods at affordable prices. Find out more about our jurying process here.

 

Second Use is a community focused business dedicated to diverting reusable building materials from the landfill and selling them to the public at an affordable cost through our retail store.

In other words, we go into houses and commercial spaces slated for remodel or demolition and harvest the good stuff (doors, cabinets, windows, appliances, flooring, hardware) to prevent it from going to waste.  We haul it back to our retail stores in Tacoma & Seattle and sell it to the public for a fraction of the cost they would buy new.

 

Second Use relies on the creativity of the community to repurpose used 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.

Founded in 2013, our markets are our way of offering exposure to you in return while giving the public an opportunity to shop small. Although the series has grown tremendously since its founding, we maintain the same commitment to keep entry fees low and create an accessible environment that celebrates artisans of a wide variety of disciplines.
