Most thrift stores consist of lots of clothes, some tchotchkes and housewares, maybe some books, and occasionally some furniture. The store reStore is different. Almost all of what is sold at reStore is home improvement type stuff, some new, some used. This is the place to go if you are remodeling and want to see what you might be able to get for cheap. This is also the place to go if you want to get the drawers to make something like this or this. How cool would that be?
I've been to the one in South Fort Worth a couple of times. As of last week they had large (5'x7' & 6'x8') area rugs for $35 and $70. This looks to be a "when they're gone, they're gone" type thing...
Prices seem to be pretty good overall, except for drawer pulls, which ran about $1 a piece, which is the same price that you can get cheap drawer pulls at Home dopey.
This reStore is in an open warehouse. No AC or heat for these guys, so do your shopping here in the more temperate times of the year.
