EUGENE, Ore. — A local store is going a little beyond just reusing old forgotten wares.
Out on a Limb on Broadway in downtown Eugene is all about repurposing things. Bowling ball lamps, driftwood decorations and furniture–the shop is filled with relatively ordinary items turned into something a bit more unique. The store’s owner says this sort of sustainable work is very important to him.
“A lot of people are into recycling but to repurpose something is to give it a long life whereas you lose a lot of energy to recycle something than if you repurpose something. I mean, what’s a bowling ball going to become if it’s not somehow art?” said Tim Boyden, artist and Out on a Limb Owner.
The store is open every Wednesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sundays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. It’s located at 191 East Broadway.
