If you are an artist with an environmentally friendly aspect to your work, you’ll want to stop in — often — at the Upcycle Parts Shop in the St. Clair/Superior neighborhood, a sort of thrift shop for artist materials. The shop specializes in items that can be refashioned into art, ranging from tiles and wood pieces left over from construction projects to buttons, bottles, plastic doohickeys and other stuff that was gathering dust in someone’s house until they saw the possibility that someone could make something from it. New stuff is donated all the time. The shop also has a crafts bar you can rent out for parties and hosts regular classes and crafting sessions.
