If you're not yet hip to the magic of Film Biz Recycling, allow us to introduce you. Jammed into a rambling basement in Gowanus, the shop nearly overflows with thousands of discarded and "upcycled" props from numerous movie, TV, and commercial shoots, all available to rent or own. Need a presidential debate podium? Enough menus to stock a restaurant? A set of '90s mobile phones? The folks at Film Biz have got you sorted and then some — they also host crafting classes and donate 60% of their materials to charity. To support their incredible, creative efforts, the Bell House hosts a live auction of prop and costume packages curated by some fashion, art, and show-biz luminaries — including Morgan Spurlock, Kurt Braunohler, Buffi Jashanmal, Jimmy Diresta, and Jessi Arington. Dale Seever hosts the auction, while the Allen Oldies bands plays hits from the '50s and '60s. Warm up your bidding arm by lifting $2 tacos from Oaxaca Tacqueria and sliders from Root Hill Burger, and $1 Brooklyn Brewery longnecks, and then go win yourself that pair of pink platform sequined heels.
