Habitat Happenings

Apex PeakFest this Saturday, May 6

Come see us this Saturday, May 6, at the Apex PeakFest! We’ll have a booth up and will be selling unique store items, refurbished and upcycled pieces, and pieces we’ve made from scratch from ReStore materials. We have some very crafty staff and volunteers — you won’t want to miss this!

In addition to a Wake ReStore tent, there will be more than 200 other vendors displaying arts and crafts. There will also be music stages and wonderful food! The festival runs 9am-5pm Saturday. We hope to see you there.
