Jacquie's Up-Cycle Nation: Wearing of the Green

 At Up-Cycle Nation going green is celebrated year round, but today green goes a shade deeper to celebrate Saint Patrick's Day with four leaf perfection.  Irish or not, these Etsy up-cycle artists have envy-worthy goods for the lucky seeker. 
Grab a wrist-full-of-whimsy at Belmonili where vintage buttons and costume jewelry are repurposed into dreamy bracelets, necklaces and bridal accessories. Be prepared to linger, this artist's shop is bursting with fanciful delights! 
Spring flings, garden parties, and prom season are hot on the heels of St. Patty's day. Shop early to score that one of a kind vintage dress for a special occasion or everyday wear at Pinebrookvintage
Need vintage with an attitude?  Strut over to Boston's  RenegadeRevival and claim your inner rebel. This sharkskin jacket is oh sooooo sharp!
Waxed canvas and up-cycled wool marry urban and rural tastes at WoolyBison.  Handmade with quality and durability in mind, these bags are destined to become legendary.
Of course, it wouldn't be St. Patrick's day without raising a good mug of beer and toasting all Etsy up-cycle artists who work everyday to keep the "Go Green" movement alive! Cheers to you!
To find more fabulous eco-friendly finds like this vintage brewery tray from paroliro, search recycled green on Etsy.
