Home Restoration Fair In Long Beach

Thanks to Candy for reminding me. This weekend, I expect everyone from Wrigley to attend. :) See you there!

2009 Restoration Trade Fair & Fundraiser

Brings Together Restoration Specialists, Artisans, City Experts &
Non-Profit Organizations

Sunday, June 28th 9am-4pm
Luther Burbank School, 4th & Junipero, Long Beach

The event is Free to RPNA members and all children under 18; $5 for all
others. Parking is free.

This is a one-day, one-stop event to help homeowners in Historic Districts
restore and refurbish their homes. This year’s theme is “Do it Yourself/Do
it With Help”, which means: workshops, workshops, workshops! Also, this
year, we’ll feature onsite food and more entertainment.

We will have fifty (50) specialty vendors, experts knowledgeable in The
City of Long Beach’s historic guidelines, guest speakers, classes, and
exhibits throughout the day.

The event is a fundraiser for the Rose Park Neighborhood Association (RPNA,
a 501c non-profit organization), with sponsorship by American Bungalow
magazine, Barbara Paul Landscape Design, Benjamin Moore Paints, Cottages &
Bungalows magazine, Realtors: Jeff Anderson, Maureen Wharton, Shannon
Jones, as well as UPS (7th/Redondo).

Again, this year, we’ll be featuring an “Opportunity Drawing” with Grand
Prizes that include an entire landscape design for your home from Barbara
Paul, Landscape Design (restrictions apply), a whole house-worth of
Benjamin Moore’s Very Best (limitations apply), and gift certificates and
baskets from local vendors.

Shop Local and Save! After the event, check out the shops along 4th
Street’s “Retro Row” for all your interior furnishing and personal fashion
needs. Participating merchants offer a 10% discount for Trade Fair
attendees! (

The Trade Fair opens to the public at 9am and the event goes until 4pm.
Parking is available off Dawson (1 block west of Junipero). For cyclists
and pedestrians, come in the Junipero entrance and be greeted by restored
work trucks and their owners.
