The demand and need of a home improvement outlet in our community is evident with over 18,000 donations a year and over 58,000 shoppers a year at ReStore. Year over year growth has resulted in one thing for our New Brighton location... We must expand!
The ReStoration Corner
Sadie was a first-time contender in the Freestyle Flip Upcycle Challenge and she won! After a short conversation, it was clear why everyone loved her creation. Sadie had a ton of experience with upcycling, designing, and creating things from recycled items so this wasn't her first curtain call.
Back in August, ReStore announce its second Upcycle Challenge where people competed in upcycling and transforming items found on the sales floor. Each participant was given up to $50 worth of merchandise or material. The goal was to use your creativity to build anything you could imagine. No limits! Sadie had heard of the first ReStore Upcycle Challenge and decided this time, she was in!
Guest blog post by Dunwoody College students.
Last month, a group of students from Dunwoody College volunteered at the ReStore in Minneapolis. Our group is called Kate’s Club, which is named after Kate Dunwoody, one of the founders of our college. Kate Dunwoody was a philanthropist and a champion of women’s rights in the late 1800s in Minneapolis. Kate’s Club is a group of women students who keep Kate’s legacy alive by doing community service on campus and in the community.
When the winter holidays roll around, it's often time to spend big bucks on gifts for friends and family. Well, you don't have to break the bank or spend any time in long lines at big box stores. With a little elbow grease and a trip to ReStore, you can whip up some homemade gifts for under $5 each.
We had nine creative entries for the Freestyle Flip Upcycle Challenge. In contrast to the Earth Day Upcycle Challenge where people gave a chair some flair, this "freestyle" competition was different. Participants didn't have any limitations or material restrictions. And as you can see from all of the entries posted on Facebook, there was a variety of projects, big and small.
It's been exactly three years since our Minneapolis location opened and twelve years for our New Brighton outlet. We can't think of a better reason to celebrate and have a big SALE for our customers!
Let's Celebrate and Save Big!

Join us for the Freestyle Flip Upcycle Challenge here at ReStore! Our first upcycle challenge last Earth Day was such a hit, we've decided to do it again. We're inviting up to 50 challengers to bring their skills and creativity to upcycle common items or materials found at ReStore. This time, we're not limiting you by giving you a chair to transform. You've got more freedom to create anything you want!
Joey Ford was beekeeping for commercial use in Texas when he received a call from his friend back in Minnesota. ReStore had just announced that it would be hosting its first upcycle challenge around Earth Day 2019. His friend thought Joey would be interested in joining him in the challenge. It was definitely something he was interested in.
What's 250% more expensive at a big box home improvement store or specialty paint store? Many things, but the correct answer for this blog is PAINT!
A gallon of paint can cost upward of $40 a gallon. But what if I told you that you could find a quality paint for $16 a gallon? Take another look at Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity ReStore.
Here at Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity ReStore we run into a lot of people building, renovating, and creating all kinds of things. But not everyone knows how to start. Sometimes you need just a little inspiration to kick things into gear. Don't worry, we've got you covered!
