The 5th annual DESIGNfinds – Not Your Neighbourhood Garage Sale took place on Sunday June 23, 2013 and was a resounding success.  DESIGNfinds is an amazing one-of-a-kind sale where IDIBC members and industry suppliers donate their goods and services in a fund raising partnership with Habitat for Humanity Greater Vancouver.  All proceeds are used to help local families in need of clean, safe and affordable housing. 

The event tally on sale day exceeded $16,000 (last year we raised $15,536 on sale day).  Sales inside the ReStore were more than double of a regular day and the event brought valuable exposure to the new North Vancouver ReStore location.  All items that were not sold on sale day will remain in the ReStore to further boost sale day numbers (last year’s post sales increased our numbers to over $23,000 raised!)

New this year was an IDIBC/IDC information booth, silent auction and design staging challenge adding to the fun and energy of the day.  Habitat for Humanity Greater Vancouver is extremely grateful for the time and efforts of a large body of volunteers without whom this event would not be possible. 

A big thank you to all IDIBC members who donated goods to the sale and who came out to support this worthwhile cause.
