Vintage for a Cause Auction


We at About love the show “Flea Market Flip,” and we thought it would be fun to do something similar. We asked five local shops and designers to participate in About magazine’s second Vintage for a Cause project. The concept is to bring new life to an old piece of furniture or home decor and repurpose it into something new.

These pieces will not be going to a flea market. Instead, these upcycled masterpieces are available here on our website for your bidding pleasure in our second Vintage for a Cause auction! All proceeds from the auction will go to Habitat for Humanity and Restore. We wanted to give back to the community, and we thought this would be a great way to do that.

Auction Items. Click on each auction item below to learn more about each item up for bid, review the auction rules, and start bidding! You can even view these pieces in person by visiting the shops over the next few weeks. And don’t miss the feature on each designer or vintage shop inside the June issue of About Your Home.

The Gist. The highest bidder for each piece will win when the auction closes on Sunday, June 18, at 11:59 p.m.

Bid generously! All proceeds from the Vintage for a Cause auction go to Habitat for Humanity.


The highest bidder for each piece will win when the Vintage for a Cause auction ends on Friday, June 18 at 11:59 p.m. Each vintage auction item has its own page on our site where you can learn more and place your bids. Simply view the auction item you’d like to bid on, and follow the registration process on the site and place your bid in $10 increments. You can even place a proxy bid—a maximum amount you’re willing to bid—and our auction system will bid incrementally for you up to that amount. Keep an eye on the bidding between now and June 18 so you don’t miss out on these incredible pieces! And remember, all proceeds from Vintage for a Cause go to Habitat for Humanity and Restore. After the auction concludes, if you are the highest bidder, you will be put in contact with the designer to set up a time to collect your prize at their shop. And the team at About will secure your payment at the winning bid amount by credit card online via Paypal. No Paypal account? No worries! You can still pay online with your credit card. You may also pay by check. PLEASE NOTE: Shipping is NOT provided, so please only bid if you are able to arrange pickup of your piece. Serious bidders only, please. No winning item will be available for pickup until we have received your payment.
