Film Biz Recycling Auction

Last week I discovered one of the *coolest* places in Brooklyn: The Film Biz Recycling House in the Gowanus area. It is a not-for-profit organization that takes all the movie set decorations, saves them from becoming trash and sells them. Visiting the Film Biz Recycling makes my heart beat faster. Think vintage radios and photo cameras, neon signs, bikes, furniture, file cabinets… and so on. I barely made it out without loading up my car.

Film Biz Recycling is organizing a real life auction together with the folks of Krrb and my wonderful studiomate Jessi Arrington. I had the honor to go in and pick a few pieces that will be auctioned off. My selection consists of:

– a stylish black sofa
– white and black suitcases that work as side tables
– a vintage photo camera
– two vintage books that made me chuckle when you read both titles together
– a mysterious metal box
– a rubber shark
– a silver metal looking tray/dish
– two toy cars
– a vintage radio
– and a huuuuuge vintage chalkboard.

Other selected items are curated by Maxwell Gillingham-Ryan of Apartment Therapy; Oliver Jeffers; and Andrew Wagner of Krrb.
