Take A Stand
When a career change relocated Stacy Borocz from Atlanta to Budapest, the former Atlanta-based merchandise manager didn't realize the treasured opportunity she'd soon discover at the footsteps of her new home.
Stacy's passion for one-off discoveries and her desire to explore her new environs inspired her to seek out unusual and often overlooked locations, such as flea markets, shuttered factories, and military bases. She eagerly rummaged through each place for its hidden relics and delved deep into her ancient city's rich history by repurposing the antiquated artifacts she uncovered.
Like Stacy's other finds, this handsome cookbook stand carries with it the thoughtfulness and craftsmanship of its original makers. The sturdy slab of reclaimed timber used has been salvaged from old buildings throughout Europe. Each lengthy plank is hand-sanded and affixed with sturdy, galvanized metal embellishments. The wood is finished with natural beeswax or mineral oils for a smooth, splinter-free finish.
By coming at the cookbook from a different angle, this rustic stand prevents messy pages and protects touchscreens from disastrous spills and smudges. Use it daily to prop and peruse your recipe collection, or pair it with a vintage hardcover cookbook to give your space a dash of old-world panache. Made in Hungary.

- the maker
Stacy Borocz spends her days traveling throughout Europe in search of salvageable objects, such as vintage glass and wooden beams that she can sustainably repurpose and import to the U.S.
Stacy and her team attend local markets and explore old homes, barns and warehouses to find architectural elements that can be recast as useful housewares. For example, 19th century timber salvaged from abandoned buildings is honed into thick, rustic trivets that are hand-finished with natural beeswax and mineral oils.
No two pieces are exactly alike, and each has a history all its own. collection
