Upcycling at the Brooklyn Lyceum

Applications are now open for the first annual Upcycle Brooklyn event, from 11 AM to 6 PM on April 27/28 at the Brooklyn Lyceum, 227 4th Avenue (corner of President: R to Union) in Gowanus/Park Slope.

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: lyceummarkets13@gmail.com.

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 info@brooklynlyceum.com.

To submit a vendor application, go to the Lyceum website.

Event admission is free.
