The Texas Art Asylum, at 1230 Houston Ave., Houston is now open. Self-descibed as a "part craft store, part thrift store, part salvage yard, part antique store" the new shop collects recyclabe craft materials and redistributes them. Allied with the new Center For Recycled Art, an educational org that gives at-risk kids "opportunities to create age-appropriate rectcled art," the two orgs may make a microscopic dent in the solid-waste stream, but could be a handy place to pick up a bale of used file folders!
