KH in the News

With all the focus on green products, carbon footprints and organic fibers, we sometimes forget that there are items already in the marketplace that are the pioneers of green: vintage goods. That's why Kanibal Home was thrilled to get a heads up form Jennae at saying that we would be featured in a post today.
Kanibal Home devours old items and gives them a new life -- cutting down on manufacturing waste and repurposing products without unnecessary production. Check out our Found Objects section for some great green items and visit to read about KH and other eco-friendly products.

Hunting Season

Summer has that mischievous way of slipping right on by and lazily skipping into fall. This year, though, Kanibal Home is taking full advantage of the long days of sunshine. No lazy Sundays sleeping the day away for us. Especially since what we love the most about summer is stumbling upon the great treasures hidden in sidewalk sales, craft fairs and vintage markets. And if you want to get the good stuff you have to get up early. KH will definitely be making an appearance at the following upcoming events (and might even snag a table and sell some of our favorite finds).

Renegade Craft Fair (Brooklyn): June 14th and 15th at McCarren Park Pool from 11am - 7pm. The RCF has some great DIY crafts -- everything from jewelry to silkscreened posters to clothing.

Hamilton Park Flea Market (Jersey City): June 14th at Hamilton Park. This flea market is less DIY than the RCF but still has some great surprises. Kanibal Home has been attending for the last several years and last year we dragged home everything from vintage cameras to WWII era promotional mailers to handmade jewelry. It's worth the trip to Jersey (come on, the PATH train isn't that scary) and the downtown Grove Street area has some delicious restaurants and unique bars to grab a drink and some grub at before heading home.
