Eugene Annual ReArt Festival
Yesterday was the Annual ReArt Festival. It was my first time. It's pretty much the same as the Saturday Market, even in the same location, but obviously it's centered around things made from previously used materials. These days they call it, "upcycling." It's better to upcycle than recycle, because the crud doesn't have to go through another factory to become usable again. So, that's why people spend tons of hours making potholders out of old t-shirts, hats out of VHS tape, and art out of crap. I'm all for it, and couldn't wait to see what people would come up with.
