Today I went to the Restore in Vancouver, not quite sure what I was looking for, but I was hoping to discover some gems If you have never been to a ReStore before, it is basically a design haven full of amazing items (millwork, plumbing, hardware, lighting and miscellaneous household pieces) for a steal of a deal. The best part is that the proceeds go towards low income housing in Greater Vancouver, making it a win-win situation.
They also carry sustainable items, such as Homestead House milk paints, which are one of my favourite brands because they are zero VOC, non-toxic, eco friendly and (drumroll) $5 a pail at the Habitat! Did I mention this is a win-win situation yet?
