Eastbank Esplanade Parking Lots
Between SE Salmon and Madison
Lovett Deconstruction presents the 3rd Annual “Dropbox Derby,” a design-build competition using salvaged materials at the Eastbank Esplanade (between SE Salmon and Madison). This year’s competition will feature 25+ teams and dozens of vendors and will include the addition of Revive Design’s Flea Extravaganza!
This year’s proceeds from the auction go to Raphael House of Portland – for more than 40 years Raphael House of Portland has helped domestic violence survivors and their families find safety, hope, and independence.
The event will feature live music, food, beverages, vendors, and educational demonstrations. Teams of artists, makers, builders, and designers are challenged to design and build a project based on the year’s theme using salvaged building materials.
Der Lovett’s passion for salvaged materials and design inspired the Dropbox Derby, which celebrates sustainability and design in a fun atmosphere – while also supporting local organizations. Revive Designs and Upholstery specializes in heirloom furniture, including vintage re-upholstery and mid-century antique commercial design. With over 27 vendors, Revive’s Flea Extravaganza, is bringing makers, crafters, and creatives together for a unique retail experience this Labor Day.
