  • Lakewood-based The Collective
  • AF Home Interior
  • Chase Dowell Interior Design
  • Kara Legako Design
  • Mary Beth Wagner Interiors
  • Meredith Ellis Design
  • Tori Rubinson Interiors
  • Yates Desygn

More than 50 pieces of art by local artists will also be available for purchase.

A Preview Party will be held Aug. 26 to offer neighbors first dibs on the items. Tickets to enter 10 a.m.-5 p.m. cost $250, and tickets to enter 11 a.m.-5 p.m. cost $150.
