Sometimes I browse at the ReStore if I’m on that side of town. I have just completed a nightstand for my wife’s side of the bed and I’m going to build one for my side. I used 14” full extension BB slides for hers. Guess what I found a box of at the ReStore? Yep, 14” full extension BB slides. They wanted $1 for each slide. Score!

I have to be careful at (our local) ReStore because I’ve encountered some things that really aren’t a bargain. But this worked out for me.

Cool! How about a solid core door (36×80) for $8.25 (including tax). The cashier shot a bar code that gave me a 25% discount of an already ridiculous price. Had to have help loading that heavy thing into my truck.

Recently bought two solid mahogany doors with oval, beveled, leaded glass for my 110yr old vicorian house for $40 at my local restore. SCORE!

Veterans get 15% off. I have to get my DD214 printed out so I can indulge. They do have some pretty good prices. I have seen some sky-high prices, too, though. They were asking for $20 apiece for some 1/2” copper pipe. It’s half that cost new. They were also charging $3.50 apiece for some 3/4” bolts. Wild. Tile seems to be well-priced at my local store.

Have your say...
