Challenge participants are given a credit to the Philadelphia ReStore and they turn donated items into home décor you couldn’t find in a store. Come get inspired for your own projects, vote on your favorite piece and if you don’t want to get your own hands dirty - bid on these fantastic carts for your own home – all proceeds benefit Habitat for Humanity!
