Hey there! I’m Chelle Stein and Resalvaged is my blog where I write about all things forgotten, discarded, broken and worn — and everything in between!

I started this site originally to share our experiences from running my husband Ray’s junk removal and estate liquidation business for 12 years. While it was definitely fun and we miss it sometimes – it sure is nice as we get older to not be moving and lifting heavy furniture every day anymore!

While Resalvaged started out writing about “stuff” and creative reuse, we’ve also come to realize that there’s a lot more than just old rusty junk that needs salvaging. To us, everything (and everyone!) has potential and deserves a second chance.
