Repurposed: a new tag for some items

A Favourite blog I follow is by Pamela Zimmerman, a basket-maker whose work is so many levels above mine that I can only look on and wonder. Her blog at is well worth visiting, and from there you must visit her website.
Pamela follows my blog and occasionally leaves interesting and informative comments. Most recently she added a comment to my blog about the baskets I made for my church's salt and pepper shakers. She used the word "repurposed" in describing these baskets. It took me a while to understand what she meant. The wood I used for the bases for the baskets was surplus laminate from my basement floor. By using it for a different purpose than that for which it was made, I had repurposed it.
I have now added the tag "repurposed" to the two or three trays I have for sale that repurpose laminate. One example is pictured here. "Tags" are one of the means by which potential buyers find your Etsy items. A new tag may enable more potential customers to find my site.
Thanks, Pamela.
