Go Local Wednesday – Habitat for Humanity Restores


So you’ve bought your new home and you’re ready to move in, but you haven’t got enough furniture for all that space.  Or you’re selling your home, and simply need to downsize.   Where do you turn?  Habitat for Humanity ReStores!

Habitat for Humanity ReStores are nonprofit home improvement stores and donation centers that sell new and gently used furniture, appliances, home accessories, building materials and more to the public at a fraction of the retail price.  Proceeds are used to help build strength, stability, self-reliance and shelter in local communities and around the world.

This is a great way to give back to your community and the world, while finding steals on items you need to furnish your home or get rid of items you no longer need.  There are locations all over Central Florida, and because it is based on donations, the inventory is constantly changing.

This is my guilty pleasure!  I am constantly checking my local ReStore’s Facebook page for updates on new items and dreaming up ways I can “restore” items to fit into our home.  I hope you’ll take  a moment to get to know the Habitat for Humanity ReStore in your neighborhood.  You might find that one of kind piece you’ve been dying for.  And you won’t even break the bank.
