You know I'm on a mission to re-do my hall bathroom on a budget and one of the things we need is a new sink, taps and vanity. So I'm checking sources beyond just Home Depot and Lowe's. I'm sure you've all heard of Habitat for Humanity. Did you know they run a store filled with donated items at a discount? We went last weekend to see if they had anything we could use and I brought my camera (like any good blogger would)!
This was nice but someone had it on hold - it's too small anyway.
I wish I had picked up a few of these. They really had a nice selection of molding, doors, windows that kind of thing. Not too much paint and I had read about other's getting great deals on paint at their Re-Stores.
$49 dollars for that light fixture. I would expect it to be cheaper here!
Pretty isn't it? I honestly didn't think the prices were all that good! I still wouldn't buy most of the things they had there.
They had lots of lampshades and designer sinks.
Check here ReStore US Directory to find one near you. You can also donate building material. So if you're remodeling instead of just junking your old cabinets etc. donate them.
I have to say I was a bit disappointed. I've seen on other blogs where people got beautiful chandeliers for really cheap and cabinets, wallpaper, paint etc. I thought the prices were quite high for most things and the selection wasn't all that great. But it's like a thriftstore. It's all in the timing. So I'll go again in a few weeks to see how the selection changes.
We had a horrible hail storm yesterday. The worse I've ever seen! So I'll be out in the garden all weekend cleaning up the mess! My poor beautiful lettuce has huge holes in it. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and thanks as always for stopping by!
