The Holidays Have Come to Habitat HM’s ReStores!

Look, I know we’re BARELY past Halloween, but we’re already starting to see the winter holidays picking up in all of our ReStore locations! Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, etc., or not, we can all get some joy out of a little seasonal spirit!

This may seem a little premature but the winter section of our ReStores are requiring constant upkeep with the hustle and bustle of the pre-holidays! By getting ahead of the curve, you can rest easy knowing you already have all your seasonal decorations at a reasonable price. You can thank me later.

With the holiday excitement building, it can be easy to get ahead of ourselves and fill our entire cart with every holiday decoration in sight. Before you know it, you’ve spent hundreds of unnecessary dollars on a bunch of stuff that will only be up for a couple months before being hidden away or worse…thrown out! (P.S. If you’re going to throw it out, just donate it to the ReStore instead – we’ll even pick it up for free!)

That’s where our ReStores come in, offering tons of festive decor at affordable prices! So, if you go a little overboard, you don’t have to feel so guilty about it.

❄️Baby it’s cold outside❄️

With the weather getting chillier, it may be time to crank up the heat in your home. Cozy up in style with a luxurious wall-mounted electric fireplace like the one available at our Milton ReStore!

Candles and fairy lights are also ideal when it comes to visually warming up a space! Make the most of the dark winter nights and bring your home to life.

🎄Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree🎄

If you celebrate Christmas, no home is complete without a Christmas tree. Unfortunately, fake trees can be so expensive! To save your wallet (and your sanity by avoiding all those pesky needles that come with live trees) head on over to your nearest ReStore!

🎀Deck The Halls🎀

I don’t know about you, but I LOVE cheesy holiday knick-knacks. There’s something about the festive season that just persuades me to buy all the holiday decorations I can fit in my apartment (apologies to my roommate!). Thanks to Habitat HM’s ReStores, these knick-knacks can come with an affordable price tag. 

Check out all of these great holiday ReStore finds!

☃️Let It Snow!☃️

If the holidays aren’t quite your vibe (I forgive you), our ReStores are also packed full of other seasonal decorations that will have your home looking like a Winter Wonderland!

Our ReVive Centre creates some truly amazing upcycled works of art! They even repurpose live-edge wood to make unique home decor like the work you see below!

The winter season is also the perfect time to book a team building day at our ReVive Centre! Tap into the giving spirit and channel it into creating recycled DIY projects that can be sold for charity in our ReStores!

ReVive recycles, transforms and breathes new life into donated products and materials that would otherwise be sent to the landfill. As a green-oriented initiative and the very first of its kind, the ReVive Centre is an innovative, unique idea that helps raise funds for Habitat’s operational costs and home building program, empowering low-income families in our community!

🎁It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!🎁

Well, there’s your preview into what we have to offer this winter season! With so many affordable options at our all of our ReStores, you can enjoy the wintertime in total stress-free style. We can’t wait to see you in our stores!
