Does anyone watch Cash N Cari on HGTV? It features Cari Cucksey of Northville, Michigan, who runs estate sales. She's also recently opened a shop in Northville, called RePurpose. The web site describes the shop this way: "We offer 4200 Square feet of unique shopping. Everything from Clothing, Shoes & Accessories to Antique and RePurposed Furniture and Home Accessories.
I had a chance to visit the shop on Saturday. The clothing is in one area, with the rest devoted to furniture and accessories. It reads like an upscale home furnishings shop, with nicely staged vignettes at every turn. I didn't see a lot of "chippy" in-the-rough pieces; many items had been re-painted and distressed nicely. There were wine corks made from old door knobs and a very cool chandelier made from lockplates. Wish I could show you more but my request to take photos was declined, and I respect that. I did get a shot of this ultimate junker's vehicle that was sitting out in the mall, and an outside shot of the shop with our three grandgirls peeking in.
RePurpose is a fun browse if you're in the area. Prices are definitely 'retail', but reasonable. If you aren't a DIY-er but love this look, you'll find some fun pieces all ready to put in place.
