Inspired by ScrapHouse? Feeling green and eco-conscious? Looking for a vintage fixture? Or simply looking to complete that remodeling job on a budget?
Make a trip to Urban Ore in Berkeley. Two acres of reclaimed and recycled fixtures and building materials that are kind to the environment (as well as the wallet). And yes, you can stop at IKEA on the way home.
UPDATE: Thanks to a SocketSite reader for forwarding a review of Urban Ore’s customer service. In a nutshell, it sucks. Alternative suggestion: Building REsources right here in San Francisco.
