Habitat for Humanity's "ReStore" in Garland

Wow, Habitat for Humanity has a "ReStore" store in Garland, just south of Lake Ray Hubbard. Yesterday was my 1st time time there and I must admit I was blown away with all the amazing items they had. Before yesterday, I had driven past it on I-30 everyday to and from my home in Rowlett. I always said ... I wonder whats in there? My step-dad used to volunteer with Habitat for Humanity and help build houses but I'd never heard him mention them having a store. Well if you're like me, and have driven past it but never stopped in or didn't know they had a store, let me tell you, you need to pop in!

So what's so great about it you ask. At "ReStore", you can expect to find quality appliances, home furnishings, cabinets, doors, bathroom fixtures, flooring, light fixtures, ceramic tile, and home decorating items. You can also find home improvement items like paint, cleaning supplies, and building materials. In the Garland store, they also have furniture like desks, beds, ect. All of their items are about 50-75% less than what you'd find at the major Home Improvement stores. The majority of their items are donated by Home Builders, Contractors, and Manufacturers but they also except donations from the public. I wish I had known of them when we were redoing our lights, I would have taken the ones we were replacing to them. The greatest thing about the "ReStore" is that not only are you getting a great deal on some amazing items BUT 100%, yes people, 100% of the proceeds goes to support Habitat for Humanity in building, together with the communitand family, affordable housing as well as a safe and stable home for low income families.

I hope you venture out to the ReStore next time you do any remodeling or decorating to your house and to donate any of your house items ... you won't be disappointed!

I LOVE the ReStore!  They just opened one within walking distance of my house (although I do need a vehicle to bring home all the goodies!)

If you look carefully enough, you find loads of treasures there!

Enjoy!
