One of Buffalo's favorite East Side non-profits, Buffalo ReUse, moved late last year to their new location at 296 East Ferry (google map). Challenger News wrote about the move, here. This change represents a solid step forward for an organization that's been struggling to overcome a number of obstacles. The new store is conveniently located in a neighborhood that's part of the East Side's strongest retail and commercial centers. There's plenty of parking near the store's entrance and donation drop-off door on Dupont Street.
The deals are rather extraordinary. If you're a homeowner, landlord, property manager or local contractor, I encourage you to stop by on a regular basis. The stock is always changing and the pricing is considerably less than anything you might find at big box retailers or supply houses. I noticed 100's of square feet of old tin ceiling - see slide show - the other day. It's the perfect material for that ceiling renovation project you've been considering. Here's a short slide show of some additional items.
The Board of Directors at Buffalo ReUse has asked me to be the organization's official photographer. I'll be collecting images in this flickr set - Buffalo Reuse East Ferry Street. fixBuffalo readers can look forward to frequent updates as I visit and photograph on a regular basis one of the East Side's most exciting and progressive organizations.
