Rocky Mountain PBS, the public television station that Colorado Springs watches on station KTSC, has created a video series called Vintage Colorado. The shorts feature Colorado artisans, companies and dealers that make up the local vintage scene. Their first offerings have a decided focus on the trend of re-using and up-cycling.
Here are the three episodes currently available for viewing online:
Twenty 1 Five -- furniture makers who re-purpose lumber
Andrea Li Jewelry -- artisan who mixes elements of vintage jewels into new creations
Airstreams -- about the "in" vehicles and what people are doing with them
