The UpCycle Girls is the product of two complimentary creative minds. Our roots lie originally with Tara, who started a business as “The Upcycle Girl.” Just over a year ago, “The Upcycle Girl” became plural after Tara and Becca met through mutual friends and soon realized they had a lot in common. With Becca’s experience in interior design and Tara’s knowledge of woodworking, they became a great pair.
We started with small projects, quickly learning about the unique skills we each could bring to the Upcycle Girls. We dabbled in word-of-mouth sales and flea markets until we eventually made the decision to open a booth at a boutique called Burlap & Lace Marketplace in Waukesha, WI.
We also had our first large junk picking together this summer at Becca’s grandparents’ barn.
The Upcycle Girls have many more ventures to conquer, and we anxiously look forward to them! We also would love to share some of our original and learned DIY tips and fun upcycles. We hope you stay tuned!
