Earth Friendly Etsy: Andrew’s Reclaimed

Andrew’s Reclaimed is owned and operated by Andrew and Melissa, a lovely husband and wife team. Andrew’s Reclaimed has a large assortment of Eco-friendly goods that are perfect for your home and garden. All of Andrew’s bee boxes, bat houses, bird feeders, butterfly houses, planter boxes and arbors are handcrafted using reclaimed wood from dismantled piers, fences, barns and other structures, slated for demolition and saving them from the landfill. Andrew never uses a live tree for his craft.

Andrew’s Reclaimed is located in Seattle with an excellent view of the Olympic Mountains. Andrew’s favorite part of his art is the discovery of the beautiful, high quality lumber that lies behind the weathered finishes. Every piece is unique, as all have been crafted from woods full of different clues to its history, in decades-old fastener holes, tool marks, embedded mineral stains, and other minor inclusions. Although he saws and planes most stock to uniform thicknesses, he likes these imperfections to remain as evidence of its antiquity. (This is a feature that I absolutely love.) When you purchase an item from Andrew’s Reclaimed, you are actively contributing to the conservation of some of the most beautiful and beneficial resources, while finding the perfect addition to your garden.

Andrew has been so lovely to offer ONE of my wonderful readers a Mason Mansion. (This is my personal favorite item and one that I will be purchasing in the near future.) This garden accessory, once populated with bees, is sure to bring more fruit and vegetables to your garden or orchard, and do so in an Eco-friendly way. To learn more about The Mason Mansion, Installation or Mason Bee Activity 101, please visit Andrew’s Reclaimed.
