Rags to Riches

I love a good entrepreneurial story, especially in hard times. I love it even more when the story involves creative ways to reuse and recycle old stuff.

Enter Susan Taylor and Condie Ward, two smart, savvy, earth conscious entrepreneurs I had the pleasure of meeting at my local farmers' market yesterday.

These ladies run Rugamarole, a home based business that uses recycled and repurposed textiles to make beautiful new pieces for your home. Taking care to use soft fabrics in vibrant colors, their products look like anything but rags. Their wares include rugs from old t-shirts, cozy throws from old sweaters and beautiful quilts from scrap fabrics. Beautiful, practical and green, these ladies have found a way to make their little corner of the planet a bit more beautiful.
Take a peek...
