Ted’s Shed Upcycles

Hello and welcome to our first blog post. We are Ted’s Shed Upcycles a local, small, family run business. We save items from heading to landfill and upcycle them into home decor and gifts.


Ted is Dad who is the DIY/ Woodwork expert.

Rosemarie is Mum who is the crafter and Mod Podge Queen!

Katie is daughter who is the social media, business and creative one

Ted’s work office for many years when he worked at Goodwood Motor Circuit was a shed! and was lovingly referred to as Ted’s Shed, so the name continues with this business.

During Lockdown 1.0 Katie found herself unable to do her job and her parents were both self-isolating. They were sent lots of government food parcels which had a lot of tins in. Rubbish/recycling bins were not being emptied as much, tips were not open and charity shops were not taking donations, this meant that between them they had a lot of unwanted items laying around. When it was safe to do so the met up and discussed starting up a little business upcycling the items they had. They started with the tins. It would give Ted and rosemarie something to keep them business during lockdowns and possibly some money earning for them all.

So Ted’s Shed Upcycles was formed and just over a year later they are still going well

You can purchase their items in Concessions 28 on Chatteris High Street or from their Etsy shop
