Mayor Parker Supports Green at the Recycling Mixer
Last week’s recycling mixer hosted a great turnout including special guest Mayor Parker! We can’t think of a more green business than recycling and repurposing old furniture which made BJ Oldies the perfect venue for our 2nd recycling mixer. Abney and Becky, owners of BJ Oldies, hosted the green inspired mixer for local business owners to find out how to participate in the city’s business recycling program as well as meet other business owners that share their commitment to going green. For more than 20 years, BJ Oldies has been offering up an eccentric assortment of funky furniture and collectibles to Montrose-area residents. The eclectic exterior sports an array of colorful yard flamingos, metal frogs and overflow furniture. Inside the 8,000-square-foot warehouse, guests wandered aisles chock-full of 200 year old furniture, knickknacks, vintage jewelry and thousands of vintage vinyl records.

We were so excited to have Mayor Parker attend the community get-together. As an avid supporter of Houston’s green efforts, the Mayor recycles both at home and at the office. She’s also a lover of antiques, taking time to do a little shopping at BJ’s while she mixed with guests and business owners to support the program and local businesses.
