Gowanus is getting a new not-for-profit store that sells props and set pieces that were donated from commercial, TV and film production companies. Film Biz Prop Shop takes these items that were once headed for landfills and redistributes them to charity.
The store will sell décor, electronics, furniture, games, holiday items, kitchenware and more. A complete list of the types of items is featured on their website. Pet and baby items are not sold in the store and are given directly to charity.
Shoppers will get a chance to step into a room full of items that were once on a set. Film Biz Prop Shop will be sure to have some unique pieces that set designers had spent hours hunting down and now Gowanus shoppers can find them all in one place.
Film Biz Prop Shop will be moving into 540 President Street and expects to open on December first according to their Facebook page.
