The one near me usually has some neat stuff but anything worth jumping on predictably goes quick. $45 for a gluelam beam of that size is a screaming deal, likely over $300 from a lumber supplier.

I stop by our local one every now and then, but have never really found anything I would want. It is a good resource though, and goes to a good cause.

BTW: Jimmy Carter didn’t found it. https://www.habitat.org/about/history

All of the Habitat Restores in my area aren’t cheap at all. Every now and then you’ll find a decent deal on something , but for the most part not getting much of a deal if any. I think they’re trying take advantage of the vintage rehabber crowd.

And btw the only thing that Jimmy Carter gets credit for us being The worst president in US history.

I guess it depends on the area. The one here in Gulfport has some really great deals. Appliances are a different matter. They are refurbished and being a durable good, can command more money. Maybe building materials are the best deals.

According to the Habitat for Humanity web site, the organization was founded by Millard and Linda Fuller not former president Carter.

The site does acknowledge that Mr. & Mrs. Carter helped raise awareness by means of their participation in the organization.

Thank you for the correction. I imagine most people associate H for H with Carter.

Have your say...
