Habitat For Humanity: Goods Move From Shabby To Chic By Designers

Katrina Harrell, VISTA with Habitat

Local designers have re-purposed items from Cape Fear Habitat for Humanity's Restore-and the sale is this weekend.  The painting, reupholstering, and screw-tightening is finished, and items have been placed in 10'x10' vignettes.  Habitat's goal is to raise $45,000 to build a new home by selling the goods at the Schwartz Center at Cape Fear Community College.  

Lamp from the sale last year.

Friday, March 11 is the VIP Preview Party and Sale, running from 6:00-9:00 pm.  Tickets for this first-pick event are $40 in advance, $45 at the door.  If you don't mind having second viewing, the General Public Sale is on Saturday, March 12 from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm.  Tickets are just $5 on Saturday.  Also on Saturday, DIY "upscale" demonstrations will be ongoing throughout the space.
