Spring is such a wonderful time of the year and the perfect excuse for home decor.

The Well Worn x Open House Deli: Sustainable Style.

Join us for an evening of wine and chat about living stylishly and sustainably - it's good for your budget and the environment.

They'll share their expert tips: learn how to revamp your home by upcycling; how to work your wardrobe like a stylist; what's really worth investing in; and how to shop for vintage and second-hand like a pro.
