Mission Gifts Event

Trash to Treasure friend Robin Merrill recently opened Mission Gifts/Upper Room Gallery at 1200 East Las Olas Boulevard.  Mission Gifts is a unique gallery/store dedicated to selling the works of the poor from third world countries.  Many of these people were formally in the sex trade industry.  Missionaries provide living wages for the workers.  Most of the products are made from reclaimed/reused items.

To celebrate their opening, Mission Gifts has generously offered to hold a fundraising event with Trash to Treasure this Friday, April 9 from 7-11 PM.  This is a great opportunity for you to see what Mission Gifts has to offer.  Hor d'ourves and a tremendous organic wine will be served for a suggested $5 donation.  Also, Trash to Treasure crew members will be there to talk "trash".

This a great opportunity to stock up on the unique gifts that Mission Gifts offers.  Also, Mission Gift sells high-end unique items that interior designers and architects can integrate into LEED designs or appoint luxurious interiors.

So in summary, here are your reasons to join us:

  • Purchase Gifts to Help Missionaries to the Poor
  • Help Trash to Treasure Raise Funds
  • Enjoy the Best Deal on a Glass of Wine on Las Olas
  • Experience the Most Unique Gallery on Las Olas
  • Visit with Like Minded People
We hope to see you there.
