About The Show
September 30th, 2018
The re|source home show was inspired by Carla Labianca and Lisa Danbrot’s love of older homes, their status as owners of older homes and their lives as Realtors® in a community of older homes.
The predominantly early 20th century housing stock of the locale is a manifestation of history. At the nucleus of the re|source home show is the desire of a community to preserve this history through restoration of original architectural features and respectful renovation and design, while offering the homeowner options to imprint their own individual vision, employ practical problem solving techniques, and maintain or upgrade systems, operations, mechanics and structural integrity.
Beyond what the internet or individual referrals can offer, the re|source home show provides a forum for a community of regional homeowners who seek home improvement professionals on a continual basis to meet, engage and exchange information, firsthand, with numerous home industry professionals in a variety of fields. Conversely it offers home industry professionals an opportunity to expand their client base and cultivate opportunities to forge business to business relationships with other industry professionals.
Through the exhibition and display of projects, DIY demonstrations, and partnerships of local independent makers, this event aims to address an industry call for supply and demand that benefits all involved.
In the spirit of what home means in our hearts, proceeds from the event will benefit First Friends of New Jersey and New York, an organization that seeks to “uphold the inherent dignity and humanity of detained immigrants and asylum seekers”.
