On my way home from work this evening I stopped at Anchorage’s Habitat for Humanity ReStore. The ReStore is a hybrid–part Home Depot, part thrift store. I was in search of a cover for the hole in our deck through which our dryer vents (long story, another day) and hoping for “salvage chic,” but no luck. Bought a boring white vent cover, and I’ll keep looking for a more attractive version.
Good to know about the ReStore, however. Lots of tile. Buckets of paint for $5. Doorknobs and cement blocks and kitchen cabinets. A good place to keep in mind.
