Habitat of Humanity has Upcycled Art Auction

The LowCountry Habitat for Humanity ReStore is celebrating its 10 years of operation with an art auction like no other.  Local and regional artists are treasure hunting within the store’s aisles for items to repurpose, recycle, reclaim or reimagine.

Another local artist, Deanna Bowdish, will serve as the evening’s auctioneer.   Entertainment will be provided by the Sweetgrass Angels.
