The Latest TRP News:

It’s time to announce the National Winners of the 2012 Reuse Contest. (Last month I announced the California winners. Be sure to check out the wonderful photos and write-ups on all winners on our website.)

This was our first year taking the contest national, and we had over 100 entries from around the country. As expected, each of them demonstrated not only incredible creativity but also style, skill and functionality.

The 2012 Reuse Contest has drawn to a close. Local winners have been chosen and selection of the national winners has begun.

TRP customers in Oakland and Los Angeles have again demonstrated what can be accomplished with some imagination, a bit of planning, a good deal of sweat and a bunch of used materials.

Frankly, if these entries and winners don’t encourage folks embarking on new building projects, major remodels or simple makeovers to incorporate salvaged materials, I don’t know what will.

Because you are reading this article, I assume that you have some interest in salvaged building materials — or have an active imagination that lets you see how used items can be repurposed into something completely new.

TRP warehouses always have a number of unique items, so if you come across something that catches your eye, or sparks your imagination, that might just be the time to buy it. 

The TRP Los Angeles warehouse is moving from it's original location in Pacoima to a new spot in Los Angeles! Located near Glendale, and the I-5 and 134 freeways, the new warehouse is easily accessable. It's also bigger, brighter, and better! Come see the new facility, the new materials that have arrived, and take advantage of the moving sale prices!
