You never know what you’re going to find at Habitat for Humanity’s ReStores, but one thing you can count on is getting a great deal. Typically customers expect furniture, cabinetry, and appliances, but on special occasions like this, shoppers can take home fine art for a fraction of the cost. ReStore just got in a large collection of original artwork and signed prints generously donated. The collection consists of original works by notable artists like: Karel Appel, Sara Strozinsky, & Patrick Farrell, among others.
Art enthusiasts and casual observers alike will be excited to see price tags well below typical gallery rates. In fact, many works are being sold for under $100! The framing and matting alone is worth that. Artists from the collection have displayed these works at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Guggenheim, & Chicago Art Institute, to name a few. Now, the next stop could be your home! These pieces make for the perfect last-minute gift or a great addition to your personal collection.
No matter who you’re buying for, every purchase at ReStore is a tool used to build homes, community, and hope in Milwaukee. With the addition of a second location on South 1st Street earlier this year, ReStore is now the single largest independent fundraiser for Milwaukee Habitat for Humanity.
In April 2013, Milwaukee Habitat for Humanity launched a new Neighborhood Revitalization Initiative strategy. For the next three to five years we will focus our efforts in one neighborhood — Washington Park. We are working together with our partner families and other neighborhood organizations to execute a comprehensive sustainable community plan. Our goal is transform Washington Park into a safe, vibrant neighborhood of choice.
Help us achieve this goal by shopping, donating, and volunteering at either of our two ReStore locations: 3015 N 114th, Wauwatosa & 420 S 1st, Milwaukee. Both locations just stocked works of fine art from the collection, but at these prices, supplies won’t last long. Shop ReStore and get fine art, for less! Both ReStores are open Tuesday-Friday 10-6 & Saturday 10-4. We will be closed Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve, and New Year’s Day.
