Sometimes you run into a seller in the handmade community that really warms your heart. Today was my day and even more surprising to me is that I just discovered the shop. Actually, Etsy discovered the shop and allowed Second Line Frames be front page material which allowed me to take notice.
I'm glad I took notice.
The Second Line is a timeless New Orleans tradition – the colorful parade that follows a funeral procession to turn tragedy into a celebration of rebirth.
Second Line Frames are built from authentic wood siding salvaged from homes destroyed during Hurricane Katrina. It’s our way of preserving a little part of the beloved memory of old New Orleans while helping to rebuild it toward a better tomorrow.
A portion of each sale goes to assist in the rehabilitation of affected neighborhoods. We now donate a minimum of 20% to a wonderfully active organization, The Phoenix of New Orleans. For a look at their current projects and the stories behind them, visit http://www.pnola.org.
The frames are gorg!
