Its So Very Renovated–Habitat for Humanity

by CHERI on April 5, 2010

Have you gals ever been to a Habitat for Humanity Store–I love them–

Here is what their website Habitat Restore says about the Re-Stores:

Habitat ReStores are outlets that accept donated goods for resale. While every ReStore is a little different, most focus on home improvement goods—furniture, home accessories, building materials and appliances. These donated goods are sold to the general public at a fraction of the retail price to help local affiliates fund the construction of Habitat homes within their communities.

Materials sold by Habitat ReStores are usually donated by local retailers, contractors and individuals in the community. ReStores provide an environmentally and socially responsible way to keep good, reusable materials out of the waste stream and simultaneously provide funding for all of Habitat’s community improvement work.
If you want to shop or if you or your company have materials to donate, please contact your local ReStore.

The last time I was there I picked up some nice cabinet knobs and pulls for some projects and some pretty slate pieces for some projects–I just haven’t figured out what I should do with them yet–any suggestions.

They have items in the back that builders have donated–everything from lighting, to ovens and microwaves, chandeliers, slate and knobs–all kinds of things.

The front part of the store sells nice furniture items that have been donated–I know this is Naples (and I am not saying that like a snob–it is just the fact that there are more millions her per capita) but the items for sale are usually very nice.  I have not ever been to the stores in another area–I am curious what your shops are like.

So the next time you need to work on a project try Habitat for Humanity–the one here looks like a furniture show room–even though everything is donated–very nice items.

So once again I am Beta Testing the blog hop with the new picture link–
When you go in and it suggests that you add your blog link–PLEASE use your URL there then add the picture you would like to have show–I suggest something that shows your completed project.

The Pictures capture your attention, so rather than just seeing a link list you see a picture–I think this will grab peoples attention so they will want to check out more posts.

This is not available to the general public YET but will be by next week.

If you have any problems let me know so I can let Brent know and he can work on fixing any issues.

Be sure to add my link to your post

Cheri, I love the whole Habitat philosophy, and it has become my favorite volunteer opportunity. My old Habitat (we’ve recently moved) carried furniture and some accessories, in addition to building supplies. Here is a link to a post I did about a Habitat Show House we furnished and accessorized with items found in Habitat Re-Stores.
We also used lots of Re-Store materials when we renovated our 1914 home in Colorado–my husband and I had a standing Saturday afternoon “date” where we would hit 3-4 Re-Stores looking for materials. We collected brick for a patio, slate tile for my studio, mosaic tile for the bathroom, subway tile for the bathroom, a studio window, french doors for the studio– the list goes on! Best of all, we spent several hours at a time together driving around, talking and laughing, and marriage building.

I too have had some email discussions with Brent because I wanted to use a link system for my Vintage Easter Blog Hop, but I went with inlinkz because they had a thumbnail picture link and he didn’t at the time. I think his new system still has some bugs~ I emailed him about them already. I think the pictures should be placed alittle further apart. So it isn’t so crowded and did you have a choice for how many rows across you could have. if not he needs to add that as an option. Just some suggestions from me.

Did you like how it worked to set up? What feedback have you gotten from your linkers? xo Joan@anythinggoeshere

Thanks for hosting another great party! My daughter took me to the ReStore in Athens, GA while visiting her for a parents weekend for her sorority. It was WONDERFUL!
