Print list of items that you can donate to ReStore

Habitat OC ReStore is dedicated to providing a full line of name brand merchandise. We do not have a master inventory listing.  ReStore inventory changes every day.  Items are featured in our weekly e-mail newsletters and are also posted on Craig's List Orange County section.Sign up for ReStore eblasts to keep posted.

What does the ReStore sell?

The ReStore sells both new and gently used remodel and home improvement materials that have been donated to Habitat for Humanity. Inventory includes lighting, carpets, tile, doors, windows, appliances, furniture, kitchen and bath cabinets, sinks, toilets, cleaning supplies and more. Since we receive new donations every day, there is never a set inventory -- It's a whole new store with each donation! The best thing you can do is to stop by and see for yourself all that we offer. You may get an idea of the types of items we carry by looking at the list of Donations that we accept..

The ReStore is proud to offer brand names such as:

Price Pfister, Delta, Mills Pride, Moen, Telco, Flotec, Black & Decker, GE, Kwikset, Weslock, Kohler, Broan, Marvin Windows, Pella Windows, American Vermont, Eljer, American Standard, Closet Maid, Krylon, Dap....

These are only a few of the brands we carry and the donations list is only a partial list of what we offer -- as we like to say "You never know what you'll find at the ReStore."
