The Latest TRP News:

When I first started working with TRP, I thought I was pretty green. I recycled, I conserved energy, I conserved water. At the time, I usually shopped at Home Depot or Target. On the few occasions I ventured into antique stores, I found furniture I liked, but between the higher price tags and uncertainty as to how to incorporate the pieces into my home, there just wasn’t enough interest to make me buy anything. 
After opening the Pacoima warehouse, I met a very interesting woman, Patty Knapp, who is VERY green, and VERY talented at finding new ways to use old things.

I am often approached by contractors who say they have been making concerted efforts to “go green” and want to know how they can work with me to do more. Their customers are asking for green approaches as well, and governmental licensing agencies are responding to the interest and demand.
