The Green Gypsie specializes in eco-chic home décor, accessories and wearable art made from sustainable, repurposed, recycled or up-cycled materials. These methods allow us to enjoy a healthier environment and less waste on our planet.
Independent artisans throughout the United States handcraft many of the stores unique items. They revitalize traditional pieces, adding a touch of whimsy creating an entirely new look and use in items such as: furniture, clocks, décor, giftware, wearable art and more.
These are some examples of what can be found inside The Green Gypsie:
o Up-cycled reproduction musical horn and handcrafted wood– serving as an acoustic iPhone docking station/speaker
o Repurposed antique plates – serving as decorative, whimsical wall art
o Repurposed vinyl records, and recycled bicycle sprockets and recycled computers hard drives – serving as wall clocks
o Up-cycled Kodak photo slides – serving as lampshades
o Sustainable Wood- 100% wood wrist watches and polarized sunglasses
o Eco-chic decorative bowls – made from vegetables such as, Thai green papaya and chili peppers hand shaped into translucent bowls
One of the more unusual décor items is the Cardboard Safari Collection - wild animal heads made from recycled cardboard. These “wild animals” can be wall mounted making a statement in offices, family rooms or a child’s bedroom.
“It is important for people to know,” said Reifel, “that whatever is sold in our store is either made from sustainable, repurposed, organic, recycled or up-cycled materials. There is something very unique and special about owning a piece that is different from mass-produced merchandise.”
