This was my first time at ReStore, and I was surprised by the amount of everything they had! Need a couch? Choose from over thirty available. Interested in kitchen cabinets? They must have had over 200 there.
Donations come from individuals, building companies, restaurants, offices and more. All proceeds benefit Habitat for Humanity, which is a great cause. And bonus! All this stuff has the chance to find a new home which keeps it out of landfills.
The Red Lobster up the road was remodeling. Hmmm, I wonder what they did with all of their old booth seats and tables?
Many of the building supplies are surplus and therefore brand new. The Aurora ReStore had a great selection of lighting...everything from lamps to fixtures to chandeliers.
I noticed some really nice antiques at ReStore. There were several bedroom sets and desks that were clearly very old but still in great condition.
We didn't find anything to suit our needs for an entertainment center (I have a particular style/function in mind), but the kids were excited to find the antique cradle and rocking horse.
I found this great buffet that would be perfect for the foyer. Big Guy, can you hear me?
I was really impressed with my local ReStore, and I'm sure I'll be back soon (quite possibly for that buffet). Do you have a ReStore near you? What's your go-to place for inexpensive furniture?
