The Film Biz Recycling & Prop Shop, located in Gowanus, is one of my all-time favorite places to shop. It’s a huge space filled with props, furniture, and other materials salvaged from movie and TV sets, where you might stumble across anything from a stylish chair that looks like it belongs in a Mad Men office to a fake tombstone to a Chinese restaurant sign. It is my go-to place to buy a conversation piece, and I’m happy to support its mission to prevent pollution and create green jobs. This Friday, the shop is holding its annual Lights! Camera! Auction! fundraiser at the Bell House starting at 7pm. There will be a live and silent auction featuring collections of items curated by big names like Kurt Braunohler and Morgan Spurlock, live music from the Allen Oldies Band, and extremely cheap beer from Brooklyn Brewery, tacos from Oaxaca and sliders from the brand new Root Hill Burger. Tickets are $40 and are available here.–K.H.
