This Ain’t Junk Competition + Trash to Treasure Auction

Our 2-part collaborative fundraiser with Savannah’s Habitat for Humanity brought out the most creative tinkerers in Savannah, with over 40 submissions. Artists, designers and other creatives were invited to create art or design from discarded materials, and were given the option to shop at Habitat’s Savannah Restore at a discounted rate. Entries ranged from large sculptures to jewelery.

The This Ain’t Trash preview celebration and award ceremony was held at the Restore with food and live music The jury granted awards to 8 winners, whose work was also featured in the display windows of 24e furniture store on Broughton Street between the This Ain’t Trash party and the Trash to Treasure party.

The second half of the fundraiser—the Trash To Treasure party—was a silent auction held at the Star Laundry as a part of a large, sustainable business networking event that brought out 400 people and lasted until the wee hours. All but 6 pieces were auctioned off—thank you to our artists and designers, and thank you to our attendees and supporters!
