Don’t Toss It, Re-Purpose & Re-Design It! Celebrating Earth Day, Everyday.

White Owl Markets mission from the beginning was to re-purpose and up-cycle items for your home so not to add another footprint on Mother Earth. One of our all-time favorite ways to bring elements into your home that have purpose and meaning is with up-cycling, a.k.a. re-using/ re-purposing an item.  We up-cycle and re-design everyday in our store not only because it can create a unique look but also it keeps our business greener by re-using instead of throwing them away only to add to the already overflowing heaps of garbage we humans create.

Let’s be honest though, not everything we carry is re-cycled. We do have produced items from vendors as well as part of our home decor selection but our main focus is on the “Big Stuff” Furniture to be exact. It’s all about transparency as well.  Honest business practices.

No hidden agenda, just cool products at cool prices, period!

We love that a college student all the way up to a senior on a fixed income (and everyone in between) can shop in our store.

WOM is a company that prides itself on making things that are old look new again.  No particle board here, just good ol’ wood pieces that have lived decades before us and will live on decades after us if we give them a chance.

Not only can you save $$$ in your pocket, but up-cycling allows you to create something that is original and one-of-a-kind.  Yes, you may have to think outside the box a bit, but in the end I’m sure you’ll be happy with the result. (Pick-A-Color, We will paint it for you.)

Since up-cycling so many items, (over 3000 pieces in 2016) We feel we are contributing to a greener & cleaner environment while helping our customers create new atmospheres in their home.

It’s all about the feeling when you walk into our store and/or your home.  Our grandparents pieces can be re-hauled to bring a more current, modern look to our homes.  No waste!

And let’s talk green.  We offer all of this for fair and affordable prices.  We don’t feel you should have to pay alot! When you purchase from us, you will be greener without spending alot of green!

Stop in and see our assortment, It changes weekly!

Oh ya, and meet Zac too!

 

Pantone have released their 2017 colour trend predictions

2017 will be the year of Kale.

In lieu with tradition, Pantone have released the top ten colours for spring 2017, to coincide with various fashion weeks around the world.

Their predictions are usually pretty accurate – a keen eye can spot their list dotted throughout the spring/summer ’17 runways in a second – and last year they even hinted at what would be the colour of the year through their spring predictions.

This year, the list is decidedly subdued, featuring plenty of muted, earthy tones, including Kale and Hazelnut, with pops of primary colours like Lapis Blue  and Primrose Yellow.

Everything from fashion trends to interior design is influenced by Pantone’s predictions: case in point, one of their colours of the year for 2016, Rose Quartz, has been seen everywhere from furniture to shoes and buildings.

See entire list below:

Hazelnut

Kale

Pink Yarrow

Greenery

Pale Dogwood

Island Paradise

Flame

Lapis Blue

Primrose Yellow

Niagara

Room Buy Room: Cool Retreat

Sweet Dreams

Create a restful retreat in your nest by blanketing the bedroom in layers of white for a quiet, serene style. To keep the look clean, try varying the texture of whites to maintain visual interest. Punctuate the muted palette with soft but unexpected pops of color, like the ikat pillow, paneled blue door and elements of nature.
