Today I paid a visit to The Temescal's East Bay Depot for Creative Reuse. My art teaching partner and I were on the hunt for a centerpiece for a wire sculptural hanging project that the kids will be doing on Thursday. I'd stepped into this space before, but I'd never really looked around. It was amazing. Packed to the gills with jars of vintage knitting needles, bins of tubes, cartons, corks, foil ties, books, frames, typewriters, toys and furniture, it was organized chaos, and everything had potential. If you are in the Bay Area, its a must see. They are not for profit and take donations, so consider sending your unwanted treasures their way. They may get re-purposed into something cool! I want those knitting needles.
