Bare walls have plenty of advantages: ample surface area for finger painting, an absence of disapproving Churchill posters, and no mirrors reminding you that your hair is on fire. Fill rooms' middles with furnishings so you can keep walls clear with today’s Groupon: for $45, you get $100 worth of unique furniture, art, and oddities at Film Biz Recycling's Prop Shop in Brooklyn.

A quirky nonprofit that sells former television and film props at discount rates, Film Biz Recycling's Prop Shop was recently lauded in the New York Times for its commitment to reducing waste through recycling. Film Biz’s varied inventory starts at $5 and mixes practical items, such as turn-of-the-century linens ($100), kitchen tables ($100), lighting ($60–$100), and office chairs (about $60), with offbeat décor and bizarre antiques. Fill a frontier-style butter churn with punch to endow a house party with rusticity, or adopt a well-preserved model ship to make your side tables look seaworthy. The items available for sale at Film Biz Recycling's Prop Shop represent 40 percent of the donations the shop receives; the remaining 60 percent are funneled into charities such as Blissful Bedrooms, a cadre of interior design desperadoes who convert bland bedrooms into colorful sleep sanctuaries for children with disabilities.

Customer Reviews

Not only was I pleasantly surprised by the multitude of treasures to be found, but I also thoroughly enjoyed the shopping experience provided by the helpful and positive staff. I'd definitely go back!

I got so much great furniture for such a good price with my Groupon. It felt like we were stealing, but the prices here are just so fair it's mind boggling! I even had my husband take and donate back to film Biz the old office chair we were able to replace with a sleek vintage one from their amazing selection, because I wanted to support them and their business. I will most certainly be back, and I took postcards and have handed out to 3 friends so far to send them there as well. a GREAT experience and a new place for me to go back to again & again!
