A real-deal live auction benefiting Film Biz Recycling
Do you ever wonder what happens to all of the furniture and clothes after a television show or movie has stopped filming? A lot of it is passed on to crew members, but a significant portion of these items end up as waste in our landfills. Film Biz Recycling is one of the coolest not-for-profit organizations that we know (and have written about before).  Film Biz Recycling redistributes about 60% of waste from movie and TV sets to local charities and organizations as well as sells some products through their Film Biz Prop Shop. To raise money for Film Biz Recycling and the amazing local organizations and charities they assist, they are holding a real-deal live auction called Lights, Camera, Auction in Brooklyn. You can scoop up esoteric and wonderful rescued props and materials. Bet you would love to replace your food-gummied rug for a paltry sum!

The event has been constructed by Krrb, (a cool online site to sell and trade secondhand, handmade and locally-made), will begin bidding at $10 bucks! There will also be curated collections from Swiss Miss; Maxwell Gillingham-Ryan of Apartment Therapy; Brooklyn artist and children’s books illustrator, Oliver Jeffers; and Andrew Wagner of Krrb, formerly of Ready Made and Dwell. There will also be dollar tacos from Oaxaca, beer provided by Brooklyn Brewery, live music and a real fast talking auctioneer. The event is $10 per person but all proceeds go to Film Biz Recycling. The event is $10 per person. Details: Located at the Film Biz Prop Shop at 540 President St, Brooklyn NY 11215. For additional information, please click here.
