Announcement Wander in and explore an eclectic selection of unpretentious and unclaimed objects that I have come upon in my journey. I am fascinated by what others discard. I appreciate the patina of wear, the usefulness of the broken and the charm of the forgotten. I enjoy rescuing the flotsam and jetsam of our modern world and vintage treasures.

Years of prowling through flea markets, garage sales and dumpsters have produced a very large stash of treasures! Time to destash.
The first photo shows me cleaning a bucket of wonderful pink marble, rescued from a dumpster behind a company that sells and installs marble and granite countertops. This tile was from a bathroom reno or other remodeling job.
The second photo shows me working in my studio.
I invite you to visit my other Etsy shop: CORRUGATEDmosaic.
Around the web
Owner, Artist; Recycled Junk Magnet
I am facinated by the things others discard. I can almost visualize a use for everything, even if I'll never have time to do it myself.
Owner, Maker, Designer
I escaped from engineering in 1995 and started creating art with recycled materials. Over the years I've collected lots of materials that I'm not likely to actually use and all sorts of vintage treasures. In 2005 I started FOUNDonCURB to destash.
Accepted payment methods
- Accepts Etsy gift cards
As I will be shipping a variety of different items, I will ship via the most cost effective method. That may be parcel post, first class or Priority flat rate box. Or UPS.
If you would like tracking or insurance, please convo me and I'll invoice you via PayPal.
I go out of town for brief excursions often and do not live near a post office so I tend to go to the PO twice a week, or so. Please convo me to arrange expedited shipping. I will invoice you via PayPal to include this in your shipping charges.
If I've overestimated shipping costs, I will refund excess shipping charges, over $2, when I know the actual shipping charges. This is common when multiple items are ordered.
I'd be happy to ship beyond North America so convo me for specific rates. The shipping I've posted for elsewhere is a rough estimate, but I will refund excess charges. You are welcome to contact me for specific charges to your location.
