New This Week!

Why buy NEW when you can make it YOU?

Scratch that. Store NOT open. Online Sale in FULL Swing! (Live Periscope at 2pm on Consigning)


Guess I should have checked the weather forecast a lil bit better... Anyway, I'll be available by phone for any questions and I'll be hosting a LIVE periscope on Consigning handmade items today at 2pm. Look for me under @dumpsterdivadiy or on twitter @tanglewoodworks I'll answer anything I can about selling your art via consignment. How to get retailers to LOVE you and how to make sure your make GREAT SALES. During the live broadcast you can ask me questions. I'll also post the replay on our website.


Hey Tanglewood Fans,

Dang, I thought we had condensed all of Winter into that blizzard a couple weeks ago. No such luck! Well, bad weather is good news for you guys looking to redo your dwelling 'cause its the only time I will put furniture on a 20% off SALE!

We will continue the Sale Online AND in the shop till 4pm tomorrow as we are open for Presidents Day and it is still crazy cold.

If you'd rather not take any chances, please remember that you can also buy our vintage, upcycled, funky furniture straight from the website at Tanglewood Works. All pieces are labeled and measured for your shopping pleasure. I have not marked each item down but if you are interested in buying online call or email me and I'll adjust the listing for you on the spot.

The deep freeze of 2016 has not kept me from following through on my promise to organize an art meetup for all us upcycling enthusiasts in the DC-MD-VA area. Here is where you can join our group, learn about upcoming meetups and suggest demos you might like to lead:

Gateway Arts District Creative Upcycling & DIY Meetup

I'm so excited about this group and the chance to have a place to connect with all of you on a regular basis. We'll get to be creative, swap inspirations, and share something yummy that you bring to share (hint hint). We will meet the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of each month at 7pm. Topics will change weekly and from this group we will create more in depth classes as needed. There is no fee to join but each class may have a small materials fee. Come on and get your creative on with me!
