West Racine is getting a little re-purposing! Refined Salvage and Pallet Designs, LLC opened their doors last week at 1137 Hayes Avenue.

Inside you’ll find home decor, furniture, lighting and more – all re-purposed designs from three local artists. Co-owners Jill Boyd, Kathy Ellingson and Tara Storebeck each bring a unique talent. Everything is made from re-purposed materials and solid wood.

Storebeck says they’ve been busy with steady traffic since opening.

Walking around, you’ll find fun, whimsy and talent in every nook and cranny. They also do custom creations.

“It’s not just for women, there are plenty of ‘man cave’ items as well.” says Boyd. “At times, you’ll be greeted by Roxie the Whippet. Just don’t tell her you’re there to shop. She believes you’re there to see her.”

They’re open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday; 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesdays and evenings by appointment.
