In an old house in Pasuquin, Ilocos Norte, various items and objects made from repurposed materials can be found, turning what some may consider trash into valuable pieces of art.

William Raguindin, a 57-year-old vintage collector, has been crafting furniture and decorative items from discarded materials for the past decade.

"Basta lahat ng lumang gamit ginagawan [o binibigyan] namin ng buhay; nirere-purpose [namin] para hindi mawala sa istorya ng lipunan," Raguindin said.

Inside Raguindin's home, visitors are greeted with a display of biomorphic art and abstract creations.

Driftwood, washed ashore by the sea, was transformed into exquisite decorations.

Old sewing machines and bicycles find new purpose as tables, while vintage paratrooper helmets were repurposed into lampshades.

Through his dedication to repurposing old items, Raguindin earns over P15,000 monthly.

"Malakas ang dating sa mga fan ng mga old items so hindi kami nababakante, mayroon kami palaging nabebenta o bisita," Raguindin said.

Among his prized possessions are a 1970s turntable and stereo set, a vintage Willys Jeep, and a military bike, which he meticulously preserves.

"Hindi naman ako mahilig dati, nagawi lang ako sa luma so yun na yung passion ko at ginawa ko lang na hanapbuhay," Raguindin said.

Before discarding old items, Raguindin urges everyone to think twice and consider their potential usefulness.
