CFritz... CFritz Run...

Oops, wrong story!

CFRITZ stands for 'Created From Recycled Into the Treasure Zone'

Who CFRITZ is - is Valerie Rountree, a talented woman who has taken the concept of 'upcycling' to a new level.

At a rare breed, we are always re-using and recycling materials - old barns become run in's, old trailers, chicken coops, if we can find a way to reuse it, we do.

Valerie makes art out of her recycled materials. She weaves bags out of seat belts - YES YOU READ THAT RIGHT -

and crochets designer night bags out of pop tabs.

I met Valerie at ZMarket in Winchester, and I highly recommend everyone check her products out!
