Donate an Auction Item If you have old house parts and goodies laying around, donate them as part of more than 100 auction items relating to upcycled and salvaged window and door parts, restoration tools, Maine-related items, and more. Proceeds from this year's auction will be donated to help the building restoration or maintenance programs of three non-profit historic buildings in Maine.
The aim of the WPA is to include all who want to help change the conversation about windows. We want to connect those who wish to save their windows with professionals who can provide the needed services. We want to demystify the process of finding the appropriate materials and products for window restoration. We want to introduce those considering window restoration as a career to professionals who can help them grow. Our goal is to help preservationists find the tools they need to educate building owners, architects, and other decision makers about the value of original windows.
