Shopping at the ReStore Habitat for Humanity — East Coast Edition

When Kate told me she was taking a quick run to scope for affordable home remodeling finds at her local ReStore Habitat for Humanity, the bug right bit me, too. So same day, I took a quick trip up the road to see what was new/old at my ReStore in Pittsfield, Mass. As usual, there were some terrific buys, if you have the need — some lovely vintage lights… mirrors… bathroom sinks… kitchen cabinets… lots of bathroom tile in a soft classic off-white… and more. Following is my slide show, with each image captioned. Click on any thumbnail and it will enlarge, use arrows below each image to move back and forth.

    OOOOH! I think I saw some of that Marmoleum at my Restore in Appleton Wi! I have a tiny 3/4 bath that would be spiffy in.
    But how do you glue it down? Right now, there are cheap self stick vinyl tiles ( they pop off every place BUT the wet bathroom).
    Under it is most likely worn out 1950’s bathroom vinyl or leno.

    Pam – we went here not too long ago. Wonderful place, and we knew about it because of you. If you ever make the trip there again in the future, drop me a note on FB! I’d be great to meet you.

    I used to love our ReStore, now it’s so expensive, I rarely go there. They are also getting in alot of new pressed board furniture (NEVER in my house!) with new prices). So sad

    I visited our Re-Store the other week (Portland, ME) during lunch looking for an electric range. Nothing. Ours is rather smallish – and not much of great interest to me there. Of course naturally, before I got the house there were two NOS electric stoves but they were built ins, and they had a sign on them that said “Not for Sale at this time”. They had a vintage (Big Chill??) fridge too – but that was too large for our space.

    We did come home with a box full (exact amount) of spade hammered copper hinges for the kitchen cabinets. So, that made me happy.

    I just found out our local ReStore (Salem, CT) is moving! The huge garden center they were housed in went out of business and the building was sold. They’re moving to a temporary location at 82 Boston Post Road in Waterford, CT.

    The better news is that in looking it up, I see there’s a new ReStore in Putnam CT. Atleast I think it’s new. I haven’t been there before.

    Love that sink, (#30), too. The offset tap is perfect for a bathroom since, honestly, there’s a tendency to smack ourselves in the head with the bathroom faucet trying to wash our faces without splashing water everywhere in the usual arrangement. Or is it just me?
