Blinking Star Antiques has embraced the National Antiques “Week” theme for 2009: Antiques Are Green. To celebrate Environment Week (May 31 - June 6, 2009), they’re looking for submissions that showcase the innovative nature of people to use what they’ve got to its fullest advantage. If you’ve rescued, reused, or repurposed something, you’re showing the spirit that gave us the antiques we love today.

“Antiques really are green. Antiques made before the 1880s are by far the most green, as they were made by hand using locally-available materials. Even items made at the beginning of the 20th century that were mass-produced have had their footprint diminish over the generations,” explains Elizabeth Campbell Duke, owner of Blinking Star Antiques in Union Bay British Columbia. “We are now starting to realise that we do have to make the most of the things and materials we already have in our possession, and it’s fun as well. You have bragging rights over something you’ve put some effort into - especially if you rescued it for free or for very little money.”

It was this spirit, too, that created many of the antiques we have today. People not only valued the items they had, but the materials from which they were made. The intersection of environmental concerns and the financial “austerity measures” we find ourselves in makes the time right to celebrate what we already have.

To show your “Trash to Treasure” Makeover, ethic send before and after photos, along with a 100 word description of your makeover to “newsletter at blinkingstar dot ca”. If you live nearby in the Comox Valley, you can bring your makeover item to the shop. The winner will be determined by an in-person “People’s Choice” ballot at Blinking Star Antiques on Saturday June 6, 2009 from 2-4pm. The People's Choice Makeover will receive their choice of prize packages: locally-made glass, candles or soap and moisturizing cream. Entries will be featured in upcoming editions of “The Blinking Star” newsletter.

Blinking Star Antiques is located in Union Bay, British Columbia on beautiful Vancouver Island. You can enter the contest electronically by sending your entry to “newsletter at blinkingstar” or by visiting the Blinking Star Antiques website and clicking on the “Antiques are Green logo!
