Funky Fresh is now CLOSED

We're leaving this great page up as a resource for ideas and inspiration but the store is no longer open. Come visit our new project: Amuse - Modern Cottage Industry in Press Bay Alley on Green St.


Welcome to the Funky Fresh Ithaca blog!  Thank you for stopping by.  Funky Fresh is a small business located in upstate New York at 317 Taughannock Blvd, in Ithaca's West End. Funky Fresh specializes in upcycling- finding old furniture and goods and saving them from the landfill by reupholstering, revitalizing, repainting, and transforming sturdy old pieces into new and usable pieces for your home and office.  The store carries everything from couches and lamps, to books, knick knacks and coffee tables. 

Funky Fresh is the creation of supreme upcyclers David West and Kristina Thelen, who arrived in Ithaca a few years ago from the west coast.  They wanted to start their own business of recycling goods, and found the perfect niche in Ithaca with their awesome Funky Freshness.  They are dedicated shopkeepers, local citizens, and parents.

The store is where the major the action happens, but here on the blog we get pretty busy as well.  We've got a full list of Upcycled creations both past and presently available, a featured article on the Artist of the Season, and a Makers showcase of our local crafting friends who sell their wares in the store,.  Not to miss are pictures of Do It Yourself projects, and plenty of stories about Funky Fresh and our friends. 

Funky Fresh uses and sells all natural CeCe Caldwell's paints.  Each month we offer of course a listing of Classes for you to experiment with these colorful, zero VOC paints and try your hand at other funky upcycling projects.

It is easier than a fresh coat of paint to sign up to keep in touch with what is going on here at Funky Fresh.  On the right side of the screen you can Subscribe via one of your favorite readers, type in your Email address to get notifications of new blog posts right to your mailbox, or become a Google Follower in just one click. 

Don't miss out on a single upcycled treasure from Funky Fresh!  We love comments and encourage you to tell us what you think.  Thank you for reading!
