About ReStore Rivalry.
ReStore Rivalry is a do-it-yourself refurbishing contest for individuals who want to repurpose a piece of furniture from the ReStore in Westfield. Contestants may be hobbyists, first-timers, amateurs, experts, or professionals. To us, it doesn't matter. In February, they purchased a piece of furniture, we took "before" pictures, and in a month's time, contestants revitalized their items. When finished, the pieces were returned to the store and "after" pictures were taken. This led to part two of the contest: voting.
Facebook posts were created using the "before" and "after" pictures. Each item had been given an identifying number (R1-R10) and posted at Facebook.com/RestoreWesfield. For two weeks (March 17-31), Facebook users could vote by "liking" or "loving" a specific piece on the original posting. At the end of the two weeks, the votes were tallied and ... R9 won with 145 votes!! The contestant who created this piece won a $50 gift card to the ReStore in Westfield. The other contestants received a coupon for $5 off when they spend $25 or more.
As of April 1, all of the pieces were available for purchase. All proceeds went to Greater Springfield Habitat for Humanity. It was a win-win. The last piece sold Nov. 20.
Thank you, again, to everyone who participated! You made this competition fun and fantastic!
