It’s time for another ReStore Upcycle Challenge and we can’t wait to see what our ReStore shoppers have in store for our Freestyle Flip. It is truly amazing to see how many talented DIY-ers live in the Twin Cities area, including Lisa Jepsen, who participated in our last ReStore Upcycle Challenge back in April.
The ReStoration Corner
When it came time for our ReStores to host the Upcycle Challenge back in April, ReStore Sale Associate, Mark, jumped at the opportunity. For the challenge, anyone could choose a chair from the ReStore and "upcycle" it by turning it into something new. Mark saw the perfect chair—and had the perfect idea to go with it.
We asked Jan about what it's like working at Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity ReStore, who the typical shopper is, and what projects she is currently working on. Get some DIY inspiration and visit Jan at the ReStore!
We continued our conversation with Jan Hagerman, New Brighton ReStore Assistant Manager, and asked her what advice she has for someone new to upcycling or taking on a DIY project. She also gives several reasons "why" she transforms everyday items into something new.
We sat down with Jan Hagerman, New Brighton ReStore Assistant Manager, and asked her about who inspires her to DIY, and how she became involved with WCCO. Jan is a great advocate of upcycling, re-purposing, and bringing awareness to the the mission of Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity.

When a Twin Cities Firefighter approached the ReStore with an opportunity to decorate a holiday tree to benefit Operation Warm, they jumped at the idea. Not only are ReStore volunteers decorating a tree that will be sold in a silent auction, but they are decorating several doors that will display wreaths for sale at the upcoming Minneapolis Holiday Boutique (November 10-12, 2017 at US Bank Stadium).
Do you recognize that face? Maybe you’ve seen her at the State Fair? Or was it on her regular DIY Friday segment on WCCO? You could’ve spotted Jan Hagerman in either of those places, or where she spends quite a bit of her time—at the Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity ReStore in New Brighton where she’s the Assistant Store Manager.
