There’s a name (and television show) for people who amass tossed items and unconvincingly promise to reuse them. But at Wynwood home store Tricycle, the old is scrubbed and repurposed into delightful finds for sustainably minded souls.
Alexandra Hunt Brooch Ring, $82
Your stylish sis would appreciate the locally designed, oversize bauble made from a vintage brooch. Or maybe just keep it for yourself?
Custom Silhouette Canvas, $68
Send a profile shot of doggie dearest to owners Beth Guiteras Haddock and Mariella Bruno Chavarria. They’ll cover a canvas with your choice of (previously discarded) textile, add the silhouette on top, and print Princess’s name underneath.
Vintage Silver Tea Set, $50
Bargain-hunting Aunt Mildred will love the affordable, three-piece set, complete with intricately designed strainer and two large sugar spoons.
Embroidery Frames, $15-$30
Let your untalented granny look like a pro with wall art made from a wooden embroidery hoop and leftover fabric samples.
Revamped Stool, $140
Give Dad a place to rest his tired feet — and Mom a piece of furniture she won’t hide in the garage. The ’70s-era stool is reupholstered with a bright, geometric pattern and contrasting trim.
Tricycle, 166 Northwest 29th Street (305-576-5156 or tricyclemiami.com).
