Attic Collectibles and Crafts was a Haven Hospice Hit!
Gainesville, Florida (Oct. 29, 2014)— The Haven Hospice Attic Resale Store hosted its first Attic Collectibles and Crafting Class event on October 18 which helped raise more than $4,000.
Customers were able to select from the best antique pieces which the Attic Resale Store reserved for the special showcase. The event marked the opening of the store’s craft classroom and the beginning of many classes that will be hosted at the 300 NW 8th Avenue location. The inaugural class totaled 16 students who learned several techniques of refurbishing and repurposing furniture using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® from Laura Tanner of 8LP Designs.
Attic Resale Store Manager Steve Tinney and Laura Tanner celebrated the new room with a ribbon cutting. The class members were able to sign the frame of a group photo which will hang in the classroom. The local food truck “Soup to Nuts” was on hand to serve lunch and donated 10 percent of all profits to Haven Hospice.
All proceeds benefit the unreimbursed programs and services provided by Haven Hospice to the patients and families in Gainesville and the surrounding areas.
