Habitat for Humanity ReStore

7 Aug

I went to Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore in Oxnard today. It’s a thrift store for building materials – they accept donations and they sell them at discounted prices to raise money for Habitat.

There were rows of doors, windows, washers and dryers, refrigerators, doorknobs, tools, etc. Pricing seemed very good. For example, some of the sinks were as low as $5.00, and there was a good selection.

One of the ways ReStore can be better than free stuff is most people who place an ad for free stuff basically want to get rid of it without even having to bother taking it to the dump. So they won’t bother to take a photograph. Thus you may show up for a free item that turns out to be ugly, not as described, cracked, smelly, etc. At ReStore you can browse through things firsthand.
