About

BuckleUp just makes sense. Upcycled belt buckles to hold up your pants.

"Upcycling is the practice of taking something that is disposable and transforming it into something of greater use and value."

I love finding things that can be transformed. I was the first on Etsy with jar lid, pressure gauge, LEGO & record vinyl inlay belt buckles. Get the original, BuckleUp.

No, you don't have to be stick thin to wear a cool belt buckle! The jar lids are each one of a kind, and the recycled mint tins are so much cooler than a fanny pack.

I have been selling my products in local shops since 2004, at the local farmers market since 2006, and now here on etsy since October 2007.

You can find me and my entire collection Saturdays at the Capitol City Public Market downtown Boise April 19 - Christmas.
