What is a Habitat for Humanity Restore?

It’s the ULTIMATE toy store for DIYers and Crafters!!!

Okay, have you ever passed a sign like this?

Next time you better TURN AROUND and go back IMMEDIATELY!

You will be sooooo happy that you did!

I’m finding all sorts of new goodies living up here in North Carolina!  I have never experienced a Habitat for Humanity Restore before and now I NEVER want to go back to a place that doesn’t have them.  They have just about EVERYTHING a DIY girl could dream about!

Okay, I keep gushing but this is how AWESOME this place is…..
When you walk in it seems like a typical thrift store at first.  Until you see all the “EXTRAS”
they have towards the back.  It was like walking into Lowe’s or Home Depot’s Super Clearance Center (if those exists…. but this place does and that’s what counts).  There were rows and rows of all sorts of hardware store finds.

There were tiles (for as little as .25 each).

There were appliances. (how about an over the range microwave for $25?!)
There were fixtures galore!

(Yeah- this chandelier was $30….if only we didn’t live in an apartment!)
They had all sorts of tools. And paint brushes. And drill bits. And drawer knobs. And sealant. And paint. Oh, you get my drift.  All for a RIDICULOUSLY LOW PRICE!  My husband about fell over when he saw a $30 drill bit set for $4!

Oh, and you know all those adorable shutter projects you see on Pinterest? Where, Oh Where do they get those shutters?

Yep, at the Habitat for Humanity Restore.

And those super cute door projects? Yep, they come from the Habitat for Humanity Restore too—as low as $5 a door!  If only I had the room to do all these projects dancing in my head!  Once we get a house- watch out!

In addition to all these awesome deals they also have new cabinets that you can buy at a fraction of the price. They have granite counter tops.  There’s even a section outside that had sinks, toilets, grills, etc.

And…. that’s not all!  They also have the regular thrift store finds too!  There’s furniture, holiday décor, knick knacks, and books.

It is a glorious place.  So, if you see this sign:

You better hit your brakes and TURN AROUND IMMEDIATELY!
You’ll be so glad you did (although I can’t guarantee your spouse will be when you return home with a carload of FABULOUS FINDS!
