The Little Museum of Lost Props

That's how the owner, Eva Radke, refers to her non-profit store Film Biz Recycling. I read about it in this morning's newspaper and checked out the Website, http://www.filmbizpropshop.org/. The shop in an industrial building in Queens, New York is filled with items used in television, commercials, and films which might have otherwise been discarded.

When I styled a project for Buick I found out that GM has a policy that all props must be donated after the shoot. Unlike small scale shoots with returns and a few items going home with the stylist, this is propping on a larger scale. And the items in the Film Biz Recycling shop are sold (or rented) affordably for other stylists and everyday consumers to snap up. Apple clock photo from the Film Biz Recycling Website
