Upcycled Decorations in Chelsea Market

When we went to Pioneer Woman’s book signing in Chelsea Market, I was excited to see so much artwork made out of trash.  These chandeliers were made out of plastic cups.

Snowflakes made of plastic utensils adorned the ceiling.

My favorite part was the Christmas tree made of CD’s.  How pretty!

    I loved the lights! Just wonder how they were made so the cups wouldn’t get warm……I missed the silverware snowflakes–those are interesting. I had never been to Chelsea Market before–I’m more of a Boston Person—enjoyed seeing it, though.

    I wanted to go to the book signing so badly-but I couldn’t make it-I am so glad you got pictures and had a great time-that way I can vicariously enjoy it! 🙂 My family is going to NYC after Christmas-I plan to go to Chelsea Market-It looks great!

  6. That is so awesomely cool. Down the road from me is ReHouse which is just what it sounds like. If you own an old house like I do you can get replacement gumwood, and oak flooring taken out of someone else’s house and when you replace windows like I did you can trade them for store credit. I kept the storms to make my cold frames out of. One of the things that caught my eye was the siverware sculptures, using old flatware. They had some great garden peices.
    My only question is did they save and wash plastic silverware or was it purchased for this purpose, the same with the cups. There is so much green washing that I have to wonder these things.

  7. So gorgeous! I especially love the tree, too. It’s amazing what you can do with a little bit of imagination. 🙂

  8. Hi there! I’m glad you got all these pictures of the decorations at the Chelsea Market. I didn’t take any and I was trying to explain them to a friend. Thanks for stopping by This Week’s Menu also!

    Very cool art!

    I’m reading a book right now that I thought you might like, since you’re expecting and are a biology teacher: Having Faith: An Ecologist’s Journey to Motherhood by Sandra Steingraber.

    Happy holidays to you!

    I’m glad you guys liked the Chelsea Market – I love it there, too. There’s a really great gelato place… yum. Though I don’t think I’ve ever seen it decorated for Christmas; I’ll have to go by and check it out. Sounds like you had a fun day in the city!
