A friend of ours has recently opened a custom crafted furniture shop from all reclaimed wood and salvaged materials from Michigan called re.dwell,  There're giving new life to materials that would otherwise be discarded by crafting custom furniture pieces that express hidden potential in each weathered board or rusty piece of iron. The history and character of the materials provides each piece with its own unique look and story. Please if you get a chance checkout their new web-site and/or visit them at the Vintage Street Market at the new Downtown Market on Sundays this summer.
