Recently my family and I re-tiled and remodeled the "scary" bathroom in the basement--we all known the type--and purchased 95% of our materials from the ReStore. I didn't find all matching tiles though; instead, I found an array of colors, which enabled us to make a beautiful, color-complex mosaic. The tiles weren't the same material either; along with porcelain, I found limestone tiles, mica tiles, and kaleidoscopic, iron-infused shale tile. Now a tour of our house includes a geology "lesson" in the downstairs bathroom. I also didn't see the type of curtain rod I thought I needed. With what I did find, I constructed a steel cable suspension line to hold up the curtain, held in tension by an antique, cast iron, window counterweight.

At the ReStore you don't always find what you think you need; you find something better that ignites your creativity and allows you to be that person who posts to Pinterest and instructables.com, not the person who copies them.

I love the ReStore and would happily drive past 2 Menards, 5 Home Depots, and 16 Lowes to shop there.
