Helping out at Habitat for Humanity ReStore in Forest Grove

Michael spent his Saturdays for the last month building a display unit for them to hang their lighting fixtures from.  He donated the materials, made the design and with the help of some other volunteers . . . . .VOILA!

Prior to getting this built, THIS is how the lighting had been displayed:

Lots and lots of lighting fixtures get donated to sell, but kind of difficult to SHOP when it’s all just piled on shelves.

The new fixture really stands out and shows off the lighting much better:

And what a difference having them painted white makes!  (Thanks to volunteer, Alberto for painting!)

And while we’re talking about the Habitat Restore, check out these storage boxes they just got in!

A set of THREE heavy duty file boxes for ONE DOLLAR!  Limited to stock on hand and only at the Forest Grove ReStore.  Michael picked up several sets for us.  Just what I need to get going on my spring cleaning!

Are you going through ‘garage sales withdrawals’ yet???  Need a new shabby shopping resource besides the local thrift store?  Check out the Habitat ReStore!  Operated by Habitat for Humanity, and located throughout the country, ReStore takes donation of new and re-usable building materials, tools and household goods and sells them to the public at 50-70% off retail.

Michael and I help support our local ReStore  in Forest Grove by donating building materials (like the plywood pieces we used to sell in the store) and by setting up a blog and advertising for them.

And the next time you give your honey a ‘honey do list’ for household repairs or renovations, before he heads to the hardware store for supplies; have him stop by the ReStore first.  They just might have exactly what you need for half the cost.

They are open to the public Wednesdays – Saturdays; 10am – 4pm

And if you’ve got last years garage sale leftovers cluttering up your garage,  check out the ReStore’s list of acceptable items to donate.  And of course, all donations are tax deductible.
