Local Upcycler Remakes Lamps, Bags, and Even Shoes!

Lisa Wiebe is this local Winnipeg Upcyclist.  She currently has two Etsy sites, a website, and a blog.  Her first Etsy site is http://www.enlightenedthinking.etsy.com  and here she sells upcycled lamps.  She uses thrift store and vintage lighting and applies a variety of re-purposed, de-constructed elements.  One of her primary mediums is recycled-auto glass that she hand dyes.  Her other Etsy site http://www.etsy.com/shop/rockstartrashbags is home to to her upcycled, hand-painted/embellished shoes, boots and purses and totes.  Lisa works full time upcycling in her home studio.

It isn't too hard to find Lisa and her upcycled lamps, bags, & shoes.  She has had her lighting displayed in the front window at Edge Gallery since May 2010 and has just refreshed it this week.  She has several items on consignment at Mozy Rue and Scrunch Hair Co. (hair salon) on Lilac St.  Lisa's Etsy treasures have also been featured on the main page of Etsy three times and has been featured in many treasuries.  Take a look at her Etsy shops above and you can find her blogging at http://www.lisalesa.wordpress.com and on her website http://www.lisalesa.com.
