Celebrating a Year of Treasures: My Love for Habitat for Humanity ReStore

Celebrating a Year of Treasures: My Love for Habitat for Humanity ReStore | on the creek blog //

Hey Besties! 🌿 In honor of our local Habitat For Humanity ReStore's first anniversary, I'm resharing a little gem I wrote about this fantastic place earlier this year. Get ready for a treasure trove of finds!

So, rewind to the start of our home renovation journey. I'd always heard wonders about the ReStore but never got around to visiting – you know how it is. But one fine Friday, we made the hour-long journey to the nearest store, and let me tell you, it was like stepping into a DIY paradise! πŸ›️✨

From chic furniture waiting for a new life to sparkling lighting fixtures, cabinets, and even doors – it was a remodeler's dream come true. I was buzzing with ideas, already planning my next visit once we got the keys to our house.

Fast forward a bit, and guess what? A ReStore opened just 30 minutes from us! On opening day, we found a perfect door for our house and so much more. The bathrooms? They got their glow-up with tiles and fixtures from the ReStore. Those chalk paint projects I love? Yep, all from there. And the kitchen cabinets – a serendipitous find that saved us a bundle! It's like every visit brings a new surprise.

Now that our house is a cozy haven, the ReStore has become my go-to for home dΓ©cor and even my food blogging props. Photography boards, pitchers, cups – you name it, they've got it. It's a goldmine for creative minds!

πŸŒπŸ’š More Than Just a Store

The best part? The ReStore is more than just a store. It's a community heart pulsing with generosity and purpose. Every item is a donation, and every purchase fuels local initiatives. Like that heartwarming story of the WWII veteran's home renovation or the family who received a lovingly refurbished home – that's the magic of the ReStore.

🏠✨ A World of Possibility

Every visit is an adventure. With a bit of imagination, each find from the ReStore can be transformed into something extraordinary. 

If you haven't yet, it's time to explore your local Habitat For Humanity ReStore. Who knows what treasures await? Find your nearest ReStore and dive into the world of sustainable, heart-led shopping. 🌟
