second line frame salvaged picture framesecond line frame blue recycled picture frameWhen I stumbled upon the Second Line Frames etsy shop, I went wow – those are cool. And that’s before I knew the backstory.

Turns out this Tampa-based cooperative salvages wood siding from homes destroyed during Hurricane Katrina, and turns them into beautiful, artful, rustic picture frames. It’s their way of preserving New Orleans in more ways than one; 20% of profits now go to The Phoenix of New Orleans which continues to help out the residents who are still rebuilding.

So you’ll have a beautiful frame that tells its own story, without ever detracting from the story of the photo it’s meant to hold.  –Liz
