Re:new Events




The perfect event for a Girls Night (or day) Out! Host a private shopping party at Re:new Project after store hours. You and your guests will get the store to yourselves to shop, sip & snack. Our team will share the Re:new mission, you’ll tour the studio and see where our beautiful handcrafted products are made. At your private shopping party, you and your guests will all receive 15% off purchases made that night! All Party with a Purpose purchases will go directly back to programming that supports our refugee Artisans and students.

Party details:
The Party with a Purpose package includes a 2-hour in-store party at the Re:new Store & Studio, 483 Main Street, Glen Ellyn. We’ll work with you to create email invitations and a personalized party plan (we have connections with local performing ensembles). Bring your own appetizers, desserts and drinks (we can suggest local catering options). We'll provide the glasses and paper-goods. Also, we’ll set-up, serve and clean-up. You’ll be a guest at your own party! Hostess commits that her event will raise $750 in sales. Whatever amount is not hit, the Hostess commits to making a donation.
