Dwell with Dignity expects to feature some of North Texas’ top designers, showrooms, and retailers at its month-long pop-up Thrift Studio, with all proceeds going toward its mission.
The shop’s high-end decor and artwork on display will all be on sale at highly-discounted prices during both the preview party and the shop’s regular hours. As Dwell with Dignity’s largest annual fundraiser, Thrift Studio is able to raise one-third of the nonprofit’s operating revenue in just one month.
Thrift Studio’s 2019 design cast includes DFW locals Judy Aldridge, the founder of Atlantis Home, and Alison Dale, the owner of Harbinger Designs, plus Dallas furniture businesses such as the Genesis Thrift Store and Casita.

Although Thrift Studio is expected to be a major event, the money raised is going toward something even bigger. Dwell with Dignity works with families who have bought permanent housing, but can’t yet afford to furnish their new space. The Dallas-based nonprofit partners with interior design companies and social service agencies to provide families with furniture, art, bedding, and kitchen supplies to make them feel at home and able to focus on their futures instead of worrying about the quality of their surroundings.
The pop-up’s opening preview party will take place on April 4th with Kimberly Schlegel Whitman, Southern Living magazine’s editor-at-large, hosting the event. It will feature cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, and, of course, shopping.
NEED TO KNOW
Thrift Studio is free for guests to shop during the pop-up’s regular hours of 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesdays through Saturdays, at the Dallas Design Center. The Thrift Studio Opening Preview Party has tickets ranging from $125 for general admission to $175 for the VIP experience. For more information on Thrift Studio, go here.
