Our local Habitat for Humanity organization has opened up a ReStore — they re-sell some of the household goods and construction materials that are donated to them. It supports their operations, and provides a nice place to shop for all kinds of stuff (breadmakers for ten bucks, for example).
They have a small and badly organized book section, where I snagged this stack o’ books today. 50 cents a book. The bodum press was two bucks, and I am looking forward to french pressed coffee!
Great haul from one of my favorite organizations!
I love ’em — when I was with the EGA we used to stitch “home sweet home” samplers for Habitat. I’m a little iffy about our local groups religiosity — they seem more evangelical then the Habitat groups in other places I’ve lived — but it’s a worthwhile charity, and as long as they don’t start applying a religious test to the people they help, I’ll keep supporting them.
oh that is a great organization!
great loot too.
I love the Hitchcock book, “Stories to Stay Awake By”! oh I do believe I have that Ngaio Marsh book on my stacks somewhere!
