Reusable Finds aka ReusableFinds.com
is a living dream of founder, Virginia L. Mergener. Virginia
is a native San Diegan with a knack for taking something old
and creating something new and chic! She turns secondhand
finds into firsthand style!
It was no surprise to Virginia's family when she told them
she wanted to start a business with the goal of keeping as
many reusable items as possible out of our landfills and give
them a new life. As a young lady, she always found ways to
repurpose things. She would come home with items she found
at a yard sale, or items that some would say, “reached
its usable life” and say, “I know what I can do
Her appreciation and contagious passion for recycling, restoring
& re-creating evolved into Reusablefinds.com, which today
is shared by her family. Reusable Finds is a family business
with help from her three sons, Robert, Peter and Gabriel.
Virginia says, "It makes me proud to see my three sons
keeping it out of the landfills one find at a time".
It is Reusable Finds' desire that their dreams, willingness
and commitment to making a difference brings more awareness
to the fact that we all must make an effort to recycle, repurpose
and reuse more often.
"We have faith that our efforts are a step toward making
this earth a better place for our children and future generations
as well as to inspire our children that there is good use
in all. It's just allowing ourselves to take a closer look
at the potential', says Virginia.
