Flippin’ for Kiwanis is a fun and creative event inspired by the TV show “Flea Market Flip.” This initiative gives customers, members and volunteers an opportunity to up-cycle or restore a piece of furniture and sell it for more than it was originally priced. With a little bit of time, supplies and imagination, pre-selected furniture pieces can be up-cycled for a profitable resale at the Kiwanis Center West (KCW) Thrift Sale.
Participants choose their (pre-selected) furniture piece at the time they register at KCW where the finding, fixing and flipping occurs. Registration will continue (during regular store hours) for each event until 10 slots have been filled. First come, first served!
The pieces are transformed at Kiwanis Center West during 1 or 2 weekends during regular store hours: Fridays and Saturdays, 9-1 pm.
- Participants do not have to pay for the item they transform, but are asked to be prepared to sell it! You are free to purchase it at our price. We do ask, however, that you allow us to leave it on display for two weeks.
The next event will begin Friday, February 17th and 18th and continue through February 24 and 25th. The pieces will be staged and for sale the first weekend in March. We are planning events for April, June, August, and October. For more information, don’t hesitate to email the coordinator of the project at Flippin@a2kiwanis.org.
