On that note, I present below an actual ad posted in the Craigslist "Free" section. This truly is recycling gone wacky. I hope this fills you with Halloween Cheer! (If you are interested in picking these up, go to the original ad here.)
Once you've been inspired to responsibly recycle, check out this great A-Z guide from Real Simple Magazine called "How to Recycle Anything."

After ogling the vast assortment of creepy wares, I did find a really cool vintage furniture vendor, Caught My Fancy. One of the best ways you can be "green" is by reusing existing resources, and these guys have done a great job at buying and freshening up vintage pieces. To be honest, I'm not a huge fan of "shabby chic" for an entire room or house. However, I think some of their pieces, integrated into the right setting, could be really great. For example, the nightstands shown below would integrate beautifully with mirrored furniture to give you a truly feminine, glamourous, regency look:
Another great thing about these guys? Their prices are super-reasonable. The night chests shown above are just $415 for the pair! Check out the link here: Drexel Night Stands.
