The Reuse Showhome is an opportunity for residents in and around Leith to view a home fitted out entirely with reused and repaired furniture and furnishings.
The exhibition celebrates the stories of the reused and repaired items and gives visitors the chance to try repairing furniture and find out where to source other preloved items.
Our things have value and the showhome is the ideal place to see that in action. By reusing and repairing our stuff it minimizes waste and gives us the opportunity to create something beautiful and completely unique.
Several local charities, artists and enterprises including the Edinburgh Tool Library, Bethany Christian Trust, Inspiring Leith, Edinburgh Remakery and Upcycled World, made it possible by providing the beautiful reused furniture and furnishings.
Where's it happening?
In 2018 the Showhome was located at Quay Community Improvement’s offices.
Next year we plan to bring it back with a pop up in a central Leith location like one of the shopping centres. Follow us on Facebook for updates!
