Thrift Studio Finds a Permanent Home
Last fall, Dwell with Dignity executive director Ashley Sharp told D Magazine that she had a goal to move Thrift Studio, her organization’s annual month-long home goods pop-up shop, into a permanent space. “Right now, we only do four weeks, which, as soon as people hear about it, we’re closed,” she said. “So, we’re kind of like the State Fair right now. But if we’re able to have a permanent space, and then we could do warehouse sales, [because] we’re always sitting on inventory.” She’s done exactly that. Earlier this month, the organization, which provides free interior design services to families and groups in need, announced that it bought a Design District showroom at 1833 E. Levee St. to become Thrift Studio’s permanent home.
