While not necessarily DIY, the next best thing I know is the ZACC which provides studio space for a number of very talented artists. I recall picking up a few 'local' gift items last year during their holiday fair where everything was made from reused products that had been upscaled to another use. Any thoughts on sustainable gifts?

I can sure find as many good jeans etc.., but I guess there just ain't many overall wearin' folks that donate to thrift stores. I just see clothes as something I am legally and neighborly wise required to wear, so I absolutely hate spending more then I must on them. I do like wearin' overalls, though. I am a carpenter/odd man for handy jobs/farmer, and they are just functional for me.
