Respect the Rust! Building a Salvage Economy at RBX

Respect the Rust! Building a Salvage Economy at RBX
Show Notes

Jessica Davis knows salvage - where to get it, how to move it, and how to help others buy and sell architectural salvage and used building materials. Jessica is the founder and owner of Rebuilders Xchange (RBX) and she is on a mission to build a salvage economy here in Cleveland. In this episode, Jessica gives us a quick tour then we sit down to talk about how she turned 70,000 sq. ft. of the old Osborn Manufacturing plant into a vibrant retail hub filled with unique items rescued from homes, factories, and warehouses in the region.  A trip to RBX in Cleveland's St. Clair-Superior neighborhood is a treasure hunt. You may have an idea of what you are looking for, but you will likely come home with something totally different, and that’s the fun of it.  Visit RBX to experience architectural salvage, Cleveland history, and connect with Jessica, Kris and Ron who are at the heart of Cleveland’s reuse economy. They are as unique as the times they sell.
