The Story:

Give us your weary and broken, chipped and discarded, and we will show you that there is MUCH life yet to be lived! These crosses rose from the dump, literally! My earliest days were spent walking and praying and searching for ways to create beautiful things from what we had on hand. Fortunately we worked in the neighborhood by the dump. Many broken dishes discarded ended up there!

We took the pieces, bleached them to clean, and then learned to form them into crosses!

Today they remain a sign of Hope and the truth that our lives are Not Wasted when we add a bit of faith and imagination to the mix!

Uniquely 2nd Story Goods. These crosses shout it ...no matter how broken or set aside we think we are...there is always a beautiful 2nd Story waiting!

The Details:

-materials: upcycled ceramic, wire, cotton string

About the Partner & Their Impact:

Our Impact Partner, 2nd Story Goods understands how it feels to want to buy things that are good for the people who made them, the planet, and you. This is why they have been working on the ground with their artisans in Gonaives, Haiti for 10 years, creating recycled, handcrafted goods for a livable wage. Last year, their impact enabled over 108 children to stay in school, not because of hand-outs, but through the dignity of their parents’ work with 2nd Story Goods.
