“What started as a pop-up shop for art and donations in Hopewell has raised more than $25,000 for HomeFront, the nonprofit organization focusing on ending homelessness in Central Jersey.
The pop-up shop, curated by members of ArtSpace, one of the creative programs under HomeFront, launched in early December. ArtSpace is a spacious studio on HomeFront’s Family Campus that offers clients the opportunity to create and make art.
At the pop-up, people donate pottery, collectibles, art, antiques, and other items that volunteers then sell to benefit HomeFront, said Ruthann Traylor, the ArtSpace and SewingSpace director.
Jim Baxter, owner of Baxter Construction, owns the storefront. Since he’s renovating the upstairs area, he offered HomeFront the use of the downstairs space, Traylor said.
