Places To Go: Habitat for Humanity ReStore
Habitat for Humanity ReStore, is a DIY’ers dream and best kept secret! When I first found this place I thought I hit the jackpot. It is a resale outlet store that sells reusable and surplus building materials to the public. They promote reuse and recycling and the best part is that there are locations all over the US and Canada.
You can find everything from flooring, doors, appliances, fixtures, and building materials to lighting, paint, home décor, furniture, and artwork. All of it is sold at a discounted price and the proceeds of each resale outlet help Habitat associates fund the construction of Habitat for Humanity homes within their local communities.
There are always sales and great deals. For example, I purchased ceramic knobs to update an old dresser and they were only twenty five cents each! Paint samples for small projects are only one dollar or less. It’s a great resource for inexpensive glass, mirrors, lampshades, and other decor items as well. If you have larger projects, I have seen entire walls of like new kitchen cabinets and bathroom counters at extremely low prices.
You can also donate your unwanted items as well or schedule for a pick-up. Here are some pictures I took of my Habitat For Humanity ReStore location.
