October is a busy month for us here at the re!  Come visit to see our exciting new additions.  We recently picked up loads of boxes from a major motion picture set.  We salvaged these lamps, chairs, and beautiful home decor fabrics among other things!
Also in October, we will be featuring local artists' works in the store for Philadelphia Open Studio Tours on the 5th and 6th.
Then on Thursday the
17th we are proud to present our most exciting event yet! Encore: A spooky evening of performance and spirits featuring The Philadelphia Opera Collective as a part of Design Philadelphia! Read more about POST and Design Philly below!


Saturday and Sunday October 5th & 6th

We will be open both days from 10am-6pm for Philadelphia Open Studio Tours.

In the store we will be featuring works of art, theatre, fashion, and design made by local Philadelphia artists that use salvaged and reclaimed materials from The Resource Exchange.  Visit the store during these two days and see the  creativity and innovation of your neighborhood artists up close.  Artists featured include Victor Atkins, Jay Thompson, Angela McQuillan, Bethany  Rose Rusen, Sam Wittchen and more!


An eerie evening of opera, theatre, art, and spirits
Thursday October 17th, 5pm-9pm
A Design Philadelphia: Experience Design Event

All the world's a stage, and in today's world, how productions are designed, built, and discarded are as important as the story they tell.  The Resource Exchange is proud to present Encore! showcasing visual and performing
artists who tell today's stories designed for tomorrow. 
Experience reclaimed design in art and theatre by sipping creepy cocktails, hearing spooky songs, and viewing works that incorporate materials the artists have resurrected from the dead!
This special October evening will  feature The Philadelphia Opera Collective encoring selections from their recent, original Fringe Festival performance, "Opera Macabre: Edgar Allan Poe," and other unsettling songs.

Experience redesign with all your senses!
RSVP and invite your friends on our Facebook Event Page.

Encore! is an event at The Resource Exchange
