Board Member - At Large, Volunteer/Donations Pickup Specialist

Graduate of NYU, Kim has always made a point to surround herself with communities of creative and thoughtful people. With her two kids out of the house and on their own, she has more time to craft, volunteer, and think about ways materials in our everyday life can be reused and recycled. When she isn’t behind the counter you will find her sewing with the fabrics she’s rummaged for at the store and traveling the globe. After furnishing a house with all reclaimed items and furniture she is looking for that next big (or small) project.
