Morris Habitat for Humanity Restore to Raise Funds with the Launch of its New ReStore Collection Live Auction

June 17, 2016 – Randolph, NJ: The Morris Habitat for Humanity ReStore will launch its new ReStore Collection featuring high-end antiques, art, furniture, jewelry and other collectibles to be sold in a live online auction on July 14, 2016.

Shoppers can pre-register at www.liveauctioneers.com/morris-habitat-for-humanity to preview items that will be up for auction. Registering in advance also allows shoppers to pre-bid on items and set maximum bids if they can’t be available during the live auction. The auction will begin promptly at 12:00 p.m. EDT on Thursday, July 14, and will last approximately 30 minutes to one hour. Some of the items available in this inaugural auction include a handsome pair of Henredon oval book tables from the Tuscan Hills collection, a stunning mahogany wood curio cabinet crafted by the luxury Spanish furniture maker Mariner, a signed serigraph of “Crescent Bay” by American contemporary artist Thomas McKnight, and other unique items such as an original New York City street sign from the 1920s, a vintage sled, an antique Waterford Crystal desk set, a vintage rocking horse and a Magnavox Odyssey 2000 home video game console circa 1977.

With starting bids ranging from $26-$990, there’s something for every taste. The ReStore Collection was designed to help the Morris ReStore earn the highest return on premium donations. By selling these items online, we remove the geographic limitations of a brick and mortar store while allowing the market to set the price of these high value items. “Our donors have been very generous through the years by giving us their kitchens, dinettes, and unused building supplies, among other items, and our customers come regularly to the store because they know they can find great items at low prices.

The ReStore Collection allows us to reach a new market of collectors and gives peace of mind to our donors in knowing their most precious items will earn top dollar to help Morris Habitat reach its aggressive goal of building 40 more homes by 2018,” states Bart Litvin, ReStore Collections Manager.
