This ALL DAY Workshop was designed for our locals who want to participate in a retreat but can't make an entire weekend work! Join us May 21st from 9am-9pm at The Newton of Ypsilanti for a crash course in upholstery Fundamentals. Limit 20 participants. 

Remember the shoe Flea Market Flip? I want to bring all of that energy to this all day retreat. In this class you will learn how to scout for and evaluate furniture before you strip it and restore it. Then I'm going to show you how to list and market your piece for sale on Facebook Marketplace.
