Retro Rustic and Recycled- since 1995

Used2bee is a small business based in the beautiful Marldon Village Located in South West Devon.

Owners, Steve and Joanne Clark, began back in 1995 by recycling common household objects into trendy new products, often being ahead of the trends with designer media storage, upcycled lighting, waste paper crafts, organic clothing and recycled tyre products.

Over the years they have sold many thousands of their creations online, in their Torquay shop, and sold wholesale to retail gift shops throughout Devon and Cornwall.

They have been featured on BBC TV Chelsea Flower Show, Home and Gardens Magazine, Observer Homes Magazine, and have won the 'Devon Recycling Thank You' award.

They are currently making the most of the current fashion wave for upcycling by making everyday objects into new exciting things.  

Steve has a built a great reputation in Torbay for his excellent wood crafts and Joanne for her wonderful Handpainted glass designs.


All the products that they make are sold in their shop and online through Etsy, Amazon and this website.
