Before, she had been in The Hangar in midtown but says she wanted to be in a place where she could give back more to the community and help kids stay out of trouble.
"We're just trying to information the community that they can purchase these properties and put them back on the land-roll," she says. "We take the recycled material and try to get it to another person that wants to put them on their home." She has also built Little Free Libraries in the community.
Currently, she is training a local man, Don White, to help her make items from pallets. They make about five wine racks a day, which she then sells wholesale to local home-decor company Kalalou. Her products are in the company's catalogue, At West End. "Basically I'm just trying to use this space to engage the community," Patterson says.
