Resource 2000

Resource 2000

Boulder’s resources for junk art have pretty much disappeared. The big junk yard on Valmont turned into a city park that promises to have lots of facilities one day. The old salvage store on N Broadway burned down years ago and turned into a mixed-use development, still begging to be filled. Rayback’s bit the dust not too long ago to make way for new development.

But there’s still Resource 2000. The site on 63rd Street is filled with all sorts of reclaimed building materials that are ready to be put to good use. From their website:

“What is ReSource?

ReSource is a 501c3 non-profit that is operated by the Center for ReSource Conservation. We provide the community with a unique opportunity to buy or donate reusable building materials. Our stores make it easy to make smart environmental decisions, save money and find many beautiful, functional and historical items that otherwise would be in a landfill.”

Not your typical junk yard; this one has beautiful views and classical music playing in the warehouses. If you’re looking for this kind of inspiration, it’s definitely worth the trip.
