Call for Entry: Shopped DIY Competition

Instant Grit

Calling all artisans, craftsmen and women, design buffs, or masters of repurposing. Nonprofit Sea Island Habitat for Humanity ReStore, is hosting their inaugural Shopped competition (think Food Network's Chopped for home-decor DIY-ers). The prize? A $300 gift card to the Johns Island store that is filled with home goods. 


Sea Island Habitat for Humanity is an independent, nonprofit, ecumenical Christian housing ministry that works to raise money, supplies, and labor for housing solutions for hundreds of families in the area. The ReStore is a second-hand home and garden depot that sells low-priced, gently used home goods (furniture, decor, etc.) and, in turn, donates the profits to the mission of the Habitat. 


Pay a $25 entry fee to receive your mystery basket, which is filled with at least three items for you to recycle, reuse, or repurpose as a home and garden showpiece. Then, post the picture to the Sea Island Habitat for Humanity's Facebook page for judging. Four notables from the world of design, events, and art will then pick the winner (based on usefulness and creativity) of the $300 shopping spree. 


So, if you win, you could potentially revamp an entire room in your house with the great prices and pieces the ReStore has to offer. 


Interested? The time to register is now! Register at the Johns Island location by October 11, and then post your creation to the Facebook page by October 24 to put it in the running.
