This event has unfortunately passed. Check our upcoming events - we would love to see you.

Discover comfortable, practical living in a space created entirely from beautiful and affordable reused and upcycled furnishings. Our things have value and this showhome is the ideal place to see that in action.

The Reuse Shomehome celebrates the stories of the reused and repaired items and will share the secrets of where to find or get help creating other unique treasures in Leith. Be inspired by the attractive home interiors and try your hand at creating them yourself in our activities space, where our resident artists and makers will guide you through the process. By reusing and repairing our stuff it minimizes waste and gives us the opportunity to create something beautiful and completely unique.
