Upcycling is the process of converting unused materials or products into new materials or products that are of higher quality or achieve a better environmental outcome.
If you've been thinking about having a stoop sale every spring for years, but are way too embarrassed to sit outside all day hawking your old stuff, then Upcycle could be for you.
Much more than a flea market, Upcycle, set inside the cavernous Lyceum, will include swaps, workshops, recycling opportunities, and social networking. You can show off all your clever ideas about how to re-cyle, re-use, re-purpose, re-imagine, and re-invent your old stuff -- or just help your neighbors offload theirs.
The gigantic stoop/tag/garage sale will include the Lyceum's first first-ever clothing swap. Old electronics, like cell phones and computers, can also be recycled.
New "how to" workshops are being added every day. If you'd like to host a workshop yourself, e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Whatever is left over at the end of the day will be bundled into a charitable donation.
The table fee is $50 for a family or non-profit or $100 for businesses.
More information at the Upcycle website, or email the Lyceum at email@example.com.

Event admission is free.
