The owners of Fox Mountain Urban Upcycle are finding people are attracted to the uniqueness of the items they offer.

Sheri and Shane Marsh, who opened the store in December 2019, take old furniture and household items and infuse new life into them creating unique upcycled decor.

A former dresser made of solid wood becomes a book case or three dressers are made into one.

If a table is missing a leg, Shane adds a new one.

Since opening they have also learned that many customers enjoy the idea of upcycling.

In response the Marshes have expanded their collection of chalk paint, transfers, waxes and other finishes.

Coming soon will be unique hardware such as drawer knobs.

They love using different techniques to create vintage finishes. Workshops will be starting in the new year for those interested in painting and upcycling projects.

Many of the items they refurbish are purchased from local residents, at auction and estate sales from different areas in Prince George and the Lower Mainland.

For Sheri and Shane it has been enjoyable to see a beloved hobby become a viable business and meet so many locals that enjoy upcyling and unique home decor.
