A couple of weeks ago I went to Habitat Restore and Earthwise with my friend Lisa. Her and her husband are closing on first home in a couple of weeks and plan to update the house with only used items – she NEEDS to blog about this!! Anyways back to Habitat – I’ve been hearing a lot about Habitat Restore on different blogs so it was awesome to finally get to go.
The best way to describe these kind of stores is sort of a thrift store for home goods. They have salvage stuff, donated stuff, vintage stuff, and some new stuff at discounted prices. Here are a few pictures from Habitat Restore
Sorry for the crappy cell phone pictures – I forgot my camera!!
Ton and tons of doors, interior and exterior
Cabinets – all different sizes and colors
Cabinet doors – $5.00 – drawer fronts – $2.50!!
Ton’s of appliances – new and used – this was a brand new cook top for $250 originally $500
Check out this awesome vintage stove!! Only $150 and in perfect shape!!
A couple of tips – you need to know what you’re looking for and be prepared to dig. Bring a measuring tape…you’ll probably need it!
I got a new interior door and some basic white tiles for $0.10 a piece!! I’m planning to make some of these for Christmas gifts.
