The ReStore is able to offer an eclectic mix of products to our shoppers due to generous gifts from our donors. When Ernie Wheeler, from Manassas Granite & Marble, decided to retire and close his business, his wife suggested that he contact the Habitat for Humanity ReStore to see if we’d like any of the materials they still had on hand. We received eight racks of granite slabs that are suitable for vanity tops, shelves and other projects. Than..

Our featured ReStore item during this St. Patty’s Day “week” isn’t Irish by any stretch of the imagination but it certainly exemplifies the “green” theme of the ReStore. Someone donated fabulous, mother-of-pearl, lacquered Korean furniture pieces to the Habitat for Humanity ReStore – Manassas at 10159 Hastings Drive. They are stunning and timeless pieces. Reduce, reuse, recycle!

Enjoy the slide show of other items that can be found at the ReS..

When the donation is purchased by a customer at the ReStore, the funds are used to end poverty housing in our community. It’s a win-win-win proposition!

The walls in the back of the ReStore (where our offices will be located) came down last week thanks to our trusty construction volunteers, Arthur Butt, Dave Williams, Al Harris, Jean Schwab and Hao Dinh. We’re on the search for a few things we’ll need to build out the offices, including drywall, an HVAC unit, ductwork, windows, doors, flooring and more. If you are able to donate or have a lead, please cal..
