Challenging the notion that Christmas gift-giving has to be about spending lots of money, and buying the latest hot item, Folksy (a kind of UK based Etsy) and Sue Ryder Care (a health care charity) are running a competition called Upcycle Christmas. The goal of the contest is to transform second hand goods into fresh new creations suitable for holiday gift-giving. There are five different categories: most innovative piece, craftsmanship, best use of materials, playfulness and people’s choice. Winners will have their wares displayed at the Sue Ryder Care Camden store for a month, and all proceeds from sales will go to Sue Ryder Care.

For more information, or to get involved, head over to the Folksy Blog.
