I’m very excited to announce the opening of my new company!
Raleigh’s Habitat for Humanity Restore still seems to be a bit of a secret most days. But there are some days when it’s very crowded and there’s a long line at the checkout with shoppers waiting to pay for things I wish I had discovered first.
The inventory changes daily, so I personally like to shop there several times a week, often leaving empty-handed, but frequently hauling home treasures that add to the beauty and value of my own home.
You can buy new and gently used building materials, home appliances, furniture, light fixtures, cabinetry, flooring, ceiling fans, doors, windows, tile, hinges, doorknobs, windows, all at a fraction of the retail price. Shopping at a Habitat Restore is rewarding when you happen upon a bargain, but it’s also satisfying knowing that your purchase supports the Habitat for Humanity mission of helping people find decent places to live.
Take a peek at what the Habitat Restore on Raleigh Boulevard has to offer:

With extreme temperatures forecast here in the Raleigh area, it’s important to take steps to protect your home from the damage that can be caused by water pipes freezing and bursting.
- Close your crawlspace vents or cover them with cardboard.
- Disconnect your outdoor water hoses and cover the faucets.
- Keep your kitchen and bathroom sink faucets dripping overnight.
- Keep the cabinets under your sinks open.
- Turn on a faucet or two and flush the toilet in the middle of the night.
- Empty the ice in your freezer so your ice maker keeps your water pipes busy.
