A place of trash, a place of treasure

The Homegoods store is a place of treasures and I’ll admit, sometimes trash. But I always look around when I pass by for inspiration.

I was happy to discover that right now they have quite a selection of wall art made in USA. My husband and I picked up some ocean themed art, finally (!), for the master bath. I’m not sure what the brand is but they were all American made and perfect for our color scheme in the master. We also found some gorgeous, rustic frames, made in Mexico.

PTM images, maker of said frames, apparently manufactures most of their wall art and frames in Mexico at their own manufacturing facility. It’s quite unusual to find frames ‘not made in China’ nowadays, so I was definitely excited to find them and read that! They also have a statement on their web-site about creating jobs in USA, which they are doing by growing their business and keeping a good relationship with our neighbor Mexico. Designed in USA, made in Mexico – I can live with that! They also recycle production materials (wop wop) into new products. PTM’s headquarters are in California.

All this knowledge gathered, from a simple shopping spree at Homegoods and then Google. This is why I am doing this challenge, to find new products and companies that do things just a little bit differently.

Home Depot online, and K-mart Online has this brand, I’m sure you can run into it other places as well.
