Donations ‘spark joy’ for Rose Garden ReMake

Kelly Wiley could give Marie Kondo a big hug.

Donations to Wiley’s Rose Garden ReMake, which moved to Tyler Station last year, are coming in by the trunk load ever since Kondo’s show “Tidying Up” became a Netflix hit last year.

Rose Garden is a nonprofit that supports housing, life skills and job training for formerly incarcerated women. And the “ReMake” part is real.

The shop sells second-hand furniture, housewares, clothing and shoes. But Wiley and others also make things out of glass bottles, pallet wood and denim, among other materials, to resell in the store. Here is a pair of wingback chairs they covered in denim.

Wiley opened Rose Garden about 18 years ago on West Davis at Tyler. The new space at Tyler Station gives them enough room to sort donations and run their workshop in the back.

The shop is open 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.
