About Team That's Not Trash

Please support Team That's Not Trash's participation in the Fresh Start Flip Competition!

Who We Are

Our team is a perfect blend of personalities located in Southern York. I lean more on the impulsive side when I see a piece I just love, there is no thinking about it. It’s in my car within seconds. Luckily, Ann, left brain, thinks for the both of us and keeps me in line with budget and pricing, while having amazing talents with all the tools. A simple drawing on a napkin comes to life from sawing to sewing. Rachael is our middle brainchild and keeps us ALL in balance with her honest salty sweet feedback.

We are excited that this contest will challenge us to try something new while helping others. Sometimes doing what you love for money takes the joy out of it, but this competition is all about sharing the joy with others so it's a win-win.

About the Competition

Fresh Start Furnishings is hosting a furniture and décor upcycling competition, inspired by the HGTV show Flea Market Flip. Teams will compete in multiple categories, and the items created in the competition will be featured in our live and silent auctions at our 1st Annual Tapas and Treasures Signature event on Friday, April 26, 2024, at Mountain Branch Golf Club.

About Fresh Start Furnishings

Our twofold mission is to stabilize and transform lives by providing essential furnishings, home goods, and connections to resources that increase self-sufficiency, and to build a sustainable nonprofit organization through social enterprise.
LEARN MORE

Fresh Start Furnishings is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization in Maryland.  We provide furniture and home goods to families and individuals that financially qualify for our program.  Our current focus area is Harford County, Maryland but are happy to give referrals to resources in other counties when possible.  We are currently the only organized furniture and home goods resource in Harford and Cecil counties.

Formerly Found in Faith Ministries, Fresh Start Furnishings was established in 2016 when three dedicated women from three local churches convened to address a pressing community need that each of them had been serving independently. While several organizations in Harford County were helping underserved individuals find shelter and housing, there was a noticeable gap in assisting these families in furnishing their homes and transforming them into safe and comfortable living spaces. Since that time, the Fresh Start Furniture Program has provided essential furnishings to over 1,368 families, delivering goods valued at over $267,317. Our program takes great pride in diverting these items from an otherwise destined landfill, demonstrating our commitment to sustainability.  The program regularly serves a diverse population of people including seniors, people with disabilities, those in recovery, domestic violence survivors, single parents, and more.  

1st Annual Tapas & Treasures Signature Event

Join us April 26th, 2024, to help Fresh Start Furnishings increase the number of people we serve in our growing community.  In addition to helping transform empty houses into homes, you will have the opportunity to bid on my team's newly transformed piece of furniture.
