ARF Thrift Shop becomes Designer Showhouse

The Animal Rescue Fund of the Hamptons Thrift & Treasure Shop in Sagaponack is to be transformed into a designer showhouse, with rooms arranged by top interior decorators using items that have been donated to the store and pieces from the designers' own collections. The furniture and home goods are meant for sale and a preview cocktail party with the designers with adoptable dogs and cats to be adopted. “The idea that there are endless new opportunities for things which once seemed old is an important theme for this evening, the thrift shop is an amazing space and we’re hoping our designs help showcase how thrift store pieces can be used creatively in any home." said interior designer Sandra McConnell. The proceeds of the party and the show house is to benefit ARF in Wainscott and the nonprofit's animal rescue efforts. Seven designers grace the event, Elizabeth Dow, James Huniford, Ann Madonia and Susan Madonia, Annie M. Napoliello, Barbara Ostrom and Preston Phillips.  "We salute the designers who have brought such creativity to their assignment, and look forward to seeing everyone,"  said ARF Executive Director Sara Davison.
