ToniOnThrifting – New Rochelle’s Habitat For Humanity of Westchester ReStore
What Habitat for Humanity does is give people affordable housing among many things. The Habitat for Humanity Restore in New Rochelle helps fund efforts for the Habitat of Humanity of Westchester. Last year Habitat for Humanity along with a multitude of volunteers was acknowledged for turning two formerly foreclosed houses in Yonkers into places to call home for two Iraq War veterans and their families in the newly named Battle Hill neighborhood. Also, Veterans Build is Habitat for Humanity of Westchester’s initiative to provide housing solutions and volunteer and employment opportunities to U.S. Veterans, Military Service Members and their families. What better reason do you need than this to go to this fairly new Restore to shop? Plus these stores were “green” long before it was “cool” to be green and did I say that the prices are reasonable.
According to a recent article in the City Review New Rochelle article — In addition to class offerings, community activism and raising money for a variety of important causes, ReStore hires vulnerable members of the community that have faced challenges, including local veterans and fire victims that have lost their homes, and provides them with an honest way to make a living while giving back to the community.
There is 10,000 (yes 10,000) square feet of retail space and it is filled with everything from furniture, lamps, home décor, appliances and so much more. Some of their stock is from the sets of television shows.
The day that I stopped in they had a magnificent array of dinner wares, housewares, lamps, home décor, art work and so much more. They had shelves and shelves of the housewares. The furniture was in abundance and all in good condition and reasonably priced. I saw some wonderful home accent tables. The furniture at the Restore comes in a wide variety of decors so please go take a look. There is just so much to see, you will be pleasantly surprised at what the ReStore Offers.
Whether you are going off to college, moving into your first apartment or just want to update, this is a definite stop you should make!
