I have discovered this unique place quite recently. I was on the way back home and I noticed this original glass door with charming long-chair dog behind. I couldn’t help but wonder what is inside. The Second Chance – you can find at Garbary Street in Poznan. This address is worth remembering because there are few places like that.
The Second Chance is…
Halina Piechowiak’s idea how to turn passion into a real business. In her atelier you can find unique pieces, that previously have been kicked out or forgotten by someone else. Here… they have their second chance. Apparently useless things with interesting packaging are repaired and renewed by Halina, they even gain a new function becoming amazing handicraft.
How the idea started …
Starting a business takes, before anything else, a great idea. Inspiration is everywhere, all around us just waiting to be articulated. By creating The Second Chance I wanted to change people’s bad habits. We are producing huge amounts of garbage, our market is flooded with cheap products with dubious quality, that over time are simply becoming trash. Usually their production is placed where the work conditions are appalling. It wasn’t always like that. We used to live more ecologically, whether by using reusable bottles, textile shopping bags, or by buying furniture that were serving generations. Righ now we are buying cheap items that can barely stand for 5 years. What consequences does it bring? Our apartments are starting to look the same – without character and soul. It is becoming easier and easier to throw things away, because we know we will fastly buy new, more fashionable at low cost.
What you can find in atelier…
Unique furniture, home decor, original textiles, jewelery and more. You can also renew your own items there. Halina is not afraid of challanges, if you have some idea in your mind but unfortunately lack of manual skills – she will make an amazing piece of art for your home. Great person with great spirit, you just have to visit this extraordinary place. I highly recommend!
