Andrew's Reclaimed Gifts Review & Giveaway

      Do you consider yourself eco-friendly and green? Do you recycle your plastic bags from the grocery store or better yet now use fabric bags to lug your goods from the grocery home?  Have you switched over to CFL bulbs to light your home? These are things that are most popular when switching over to be more green. But what if I told you there were other ways to keep some of the Earth's most precious natural resources out of our city landfills?

         Andrew & Melissa are a husband and wife team from Seattle. They take discarded lumber and transform the wood with their bare hands into functional products! Since opening their Etsy shop in 2008, they have acquired quite the following of loyal patrons for their reclaimed wood gifts! Andrew's Reclaimed Gifts was noticed by the recycle queen Martha Stewart and featured in the April 2012 edition of Martha Stewart Living!
      This spring we are focusing on sprucing up our backyard. It's still a blank slate from when we had the house built.  I would love to have these beautiful Hanging Planter Baskets all around the back porch!  Andrew's Reclaimed Gifts sells them for $43.00 each.  If you prefer a darker stain to your wood they will accommodate your request!

Andrew's Reclaimed Gifts even has eco-friendly options for your furry friends including this Elevated Dog Bowl Feeder featuring stainless steel bowls.  Available to be customized in several colors for $55.
  I really think this Wood Succulent Planter in Recycled Cedar is beautiful in its natural splendor! Andrew & Melissa were so nice to send me one to review! This is the planter on my window seal in my dining room!

        From the moment I took the planter out of the box it was obvious the amount of work and attention to detail put into this reclaimed wood planter!  I love how all of the edges are sanded nicely so there aren't any rough edges or splinters of wood. There are also four soft pads on the bottom of the planter to lift it slightly off the surface its setting on. 
    I searched all over town looking for plants similar to the ones shown in the picture above from Andrew's Etsy store photo but was unsuccessful. I love the exotic plants used in the photo and will not stop until I find them for myself!  I finally settled with these plants for now! (pictured above) This planter is not only beautiful but it makes me feel good to know I support a business who creates functional and useful products out of reclaimed wood. It's one small step towards creating less waste in our world and that is important to me and my family.  I also find it as a great way to support an American craftsman!

These 3 items shown are just a few of the 50+ items available through Andrew's Reclaimed Etsy Store! Take a second to browse and you may find a gift you love!

                                                           Win It!!!

  12. I looked through all the items and my favorite two are two that you featured in this post....the elevated doggie bowl and the succulent planter that is being offered. I have eight doggies, three of which are rescues so I'm always looking around for great dog stuff. The elevated feeder is very attractive and would be great to have. As well, succulents are my favorites as they are easy to care for and live forever. I have a jade plant that I have had for 18 years now that I got when I was a young teenager. I have many different succulents and am familiar with the ones that are pictured in the photo. I don't know if you have been successful in finding these plants yet but I have a suggestion if you haven't. If you have a local Lowes, check their garden center, lowea usually has a rack of nothing but small succulents in small plastic pots. I have seen atleast two of these succulents at my local store and possibly all three. They are very inexpensive, my store has the smallest ones for only a couple dollars each. My store has atleast twenty different succulent varieties if not more.... If you do not have a lowes stores near you, email me and I'll help you further. Thanks for the great review. I enjoyed learning about these reclaimed wood products and would love to have a planter like that! Dh_jax (at) yahoo (dot) com
