Do you have one of these in your town? They really are fun to stop by just to see what might be available. You never know what you’ll find.
The prices are good, not yardsale good, but pretty good. Like these curtain rod finials for $5 each. Not bad.
This little glass front cabinet was over $100, can’t remember the exact price.
A planter original from TJ Maxx was $5. This could easily be changed out to match something in your house with decoupage! I didn’t get it, cause I have others like this in my stash already.
Lots of unfinished cabinets.
And kitchen parts.
Lots of tile too. If you happen to find enough of one kind, I think it’s a good deal.
A lot of lamps, I think these may have come from Target originally and are brand new.
New light fixtures for a decent price. Not a steal, but decent. But, you know I like to find mine at yardsales.
Large porcelain tile.
And this cute little table was $90. Not a bad deal. So, if you have a Habitat for Humanity store in your city, stop by. You might find a bargain!
The Pampering Beki jewelry giveaway in the post below will be open until Sunday evening at 6:00 pm (Central time). Don’t miss out!
Even though it’s a holiday weekend, we are home so I’ll still be doing Monday’s Thrifty Treasures party and that post will go up Sunday night too, so get your post ready to share.

After seeing those beautiful furniture pieces, I’m going to see if we have a Habitat store near me. I’m so happy you are still hosting Today’s Thrifty Treasures on monday. I have a few things to share 🙂 I really enjoy seeing all the great bargains everyone finds and if they show where they used / placed their thrifty finds in their home, it’s a bonus.
That looks like a fun store! I don’t think we have one here, I’ll have to check that out.
I believe the Home Trends is a WM brand, but not sure.
Cote de Texas says
I’ll bet we have one – I just don’t know where, but Rhoda – that sink!!!!!????!!!! omg!!!!!!!
You were at the Irondale location right? If so,my mother lives only a block away from there. We bought a ton of peel and stick tile from there a few months ago for only $8.99 a box. What a great deal as well as there is no tax added on either:)

I love Habitat For Humanity…and we have a store here in Nashville, but I have never visited it. It will be on my list of “stops” for next weekend! Take care, Caroline
Oh, wow! You DID find some awesome deals. I love that table at the end! Like someone else said, it would just about be worth the drive to get in on some of those deals! I have certainly driven further for less, as my CL addiction is way out of control! :>) LOL! I just learned a couple of weeks ago that we have one of those stores here in Newnan. I need to have my hubby check it out and see if there are any nice things there. If not, I think a road trip may be in our future!
BTW, I'm just wondering do you ever get funny looks from folks when you are taking all these pictures in stores, restaurants, etc? LOL!
Have a wonderfully blessed Sunday!
Mrs. C says
We have one of those here, but I’ve never been inside. I may have to go check it out now that I know what it’s like.

I just went to our Habitat store last week for the first time. I had in my mind that I wanted to find some wood shutters to make a headboard. Low and behold, I found 4 unfinished wood shutters. Happy day!! Got all 4 for $24.00.
I think part of finding good stuff at this store (and others like it) is checking back frequently and figuring out when they get the “good” stuff in. I like the tile for mosaic projects, but if you have an IKEA store in your vicinity they often give away broken tile to crafters. I think I’ll have to pick some up the next time I’m through HotLanta.
Can you tell me where this store is?? I am in Tuscaloosa, but am hoping to have a shopping day as soon as baseball season ends. I am collecting a list of stores up there, like the Homegoods that you have mentioned, and I may try to make it to Cahaba Heights for the thrifting & antiques stores.
Have a great Memorial Day! We will also be home, playing baseball all day!! I will see you for the thrifty treasures post!
We have a place here in town that acquires salvage materials from schools, businesss and homeowners. You can save lots of money if you shop well. Their selection of antique stained glass is awesome-but so are the prices for them. I bought some slate tiles there to use for craft projects. Repurposed a metal ceiling fixture into a cake stand and sold it for a pretty penny. Sure makes you feel good when craft projects turn out and other people pay for them!
No fair. I live in the same County Seat as Jimmy Carter and the Habitat for Humanity World Headquarters and we don’t have one of those stores.
We do have one of these stores but usually it is a bunch of junk. Looks like you found some decent items. I bought those exact black lamps at Walmart a couple of years ago for $4.97 each when they went on clearance. They are still on the nightstands in my bedroom. Really like them, but I think WM sold them for $19.99 originally, so $12 is not really a great price.
wow that’s some good stuff, wish I had one
I love those finials, just what I want, I put some new curtain rods up yesterday and they have no ends yet, so they would be great for 10 bucks – a bit of a long trip though hahaha!
hope you enjoyed the weekend
I’ve never heard of these stores. I’ll have to see how close one is to us, but I’m thinking there won’t be one. It would be so much fun to go through. Thanks for showing us pics!
Last year sometime a friend and I drove out to where the address I had found for our Habitat store was. We found the store, alright. It had a sign on the door that said, “Store is closed. FOR GOOD!”
Um…okaaaaaay. So, no store for us. And I’m not really sure I’d want to shop where the people who work there post signs with a ‘tude. : )

We LOVE the Habitat Re-Store here! We actually have 2 – one in town and one in a little town about 30 minutes away. We go all the time. I find lots of really cool old things – like glass door knobs and cabinet hardware. Great stores!
Amber Schmidt says
We love the Re-Store here!! We actually have TWO! One is for building supplies and appliances and the other is for home decor.
My mother got a pair of french doors there and put them together to make a headboard… total cost was $3!!!!!! It was very Rhonda… ironically enough my mother is RHONDA!!! LOL
that table would be super cute painted!

I LOVED our HFH Store in Virginia Beach. I wish there were some in Maine. Keep sending great decorating tips out. You’re the best.
