We had nine creative entries for the Freestyle Flip Upcycle Challenge. In contrast to the Earth Day Upcycle Challenge where people gave a chair some flair, this "freestyle" competition was different. Participants didn't have any limitations or material restrictions. And as you can see from all of the entries posted on Facebook, there was a variety of projects, big and small.

It's been exactly three years since our Minneapolis location opened and twelve years for our New Brighton outlet. We can't think of a better reason to celebrate and have a big SALE for our customers!
Let's Celebrate and Save Big!

Join us for the Freestyle Flip Upcycle Challenge here at ReStore! Our first upcycle challenge last Earth Day was such a hit, we've decided to do it again. We're inviting up to 50 challengers to bring their skills and creativity to upcycle common items or materials found at ReStore. This time, we're not limiting you by giving you a chair to transform. You've got more freedom to create anything you want!
Joey Ford was beekeeping for commercial use in Texas when he received a call from his friend back in Minnesota. ReStore had just announced that it would be hosting its first upcycle challenge around Earth Day 2019. His friend thought Joey would be interested in joining him in the challenge. It was definitely something he was interested in.

Two Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity homes were featured in this year's Minneapolis St. Paul Home Tour. Not only was the tour a great way to show off the homeownership program at Twin Cities Habitat, but each each house was staged with furniture commonly found from Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity ReStore in New Brighton and Minneapolis.
Amazing! We are blown away by all of the creativity and upcycling expertise in all of the entries for the Earth Day Upcycle Challenge! Many chairs were transformed into something totally new, were given a new purpose, and some were even brought back to life. The essence of ReStore and Earth Day has definitely been captured in this competition! Congratulation to all who participated!
Without further ado, here are the winners!
