Donated items are getting a new lease on life as artists and do-it-yourselfers complete their projects for September’s Vintage Home and Garden Fair. Organized by Door County Habitat for Humanity, people can pick items for free from the ReStore and either refinish it or give it an entirely new look and use. ReStore manager Megan Dietz says all you have to do is be creative.
Items are due back to the ReStore by August 15 in advance of the Door County Habitat for Humanity’s Vintage Home and Garden Fair on September 1. During the organization’s most recent audit, the organization had saved 20 tons of building materials, furniture, and appliances from landfills while raising money for its home build and improvement projects.
