The Lewes ReStore hosted the inaugural Outdoor Marketplace on July 8, raising fund for Sussex County Habitat for Humanity.

More than 40 vendors sold arts and crafts, antiques, clothing, jewelry, cooking products, essential oils, custom T-shirts and more on the front lawn of the Route 9 location. Local businesses promoted their services and a hot dog stand was on hand. For many of the shoppers, the marketplace was a first-time visit to the Lewes ReStore that enjoyed a banner sales day.

The next ReStore Marketplace is scheduled for 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Aug. 19, with two more to occur in September and October.

For vendor information, contact 381-6031. The vendor fee is $40 per event. Proceeds from the Lewes and Georgetown ReStores support Sussex County Habitat for Humanity home construction, neighborhood revitalization, and family empowerment programs.
