Best Recycled/Salvaged Goods Store

Urban Ore

This place is a testament to the saying that one man’s trash is another man’s treasure. Housed in a South Berkeley warehouse, Urban Ore has everything from office furniture and supplies to musical equipment, books, clothing, and bathtubs — everything, including the kitchen sink. All of the goods at Urban Ore are salvaged from local landfills, picked up from houses, or donated, and it’s truly surprising what some people will throw away. Like a thrift store combined with a flea market and a hoarder’s garage, Urban Ore can be of equal value to the DIY home-repair enthusiast as to the artistically minded. It’s a labyrinth of treasures that one can truly get lost in, and it’s next to impossible to walk away empty-handed.
