One person's trash is another one's treasure. Trash to treasure will show you how to recycle or repurpose items found at thrift stores, flea markets, your house, and garage sales. Learn where to find ideas, where to buy stuff, and clever ways to repurpose. Repurposing is the use of something for a purpose other than its original intended use. Repurposing an item can be done by modifying it to fit a new use, or by using the item as is in a new way.
