Our first online live auction from the ReStore Collection took place on July 14, 2016. Multiple bidders participated in the successful sale of fourteen lots of artwork, furniture, crystal, lighting and collectibles. The highest price was paid for the “Fantasia” serigraph signed by Erté.
You can still view the items and see the final winning bids in the catalog for the July 14 “Donated Estate Charity Auction.”

Instruments are meant to be played, and we would like to place your unused instruments in the hands of children who cannot afford the monthly rental of instruments. We are accepting brass, woodwind, string and single percussion instruments to be sold at discounted prices. Questions can be directed by email to email@example.com or by phone to 973.891.1934 ext. 165.
As of January 16, we have added 3 shopping hours each week. The ReStore will open two hours earlier at 10:00 a.m. on Tuesdays and will close one hour later at 6:00 p.m. on Saturdays.
Under the new schedule, we open at 10:00 a.m. every day from Tuesday through Saturday. On Tuesday and Thursday nights we stay open late until 8:00 p.m.
Our first impact is on shoppers, who find great treasures at bargain prices. When you spend less on furnishings and building materials for your home, you have more dollars to use for other purposes.
The second impact is on the environment. Each year, the Morris Habitat ReStore saves 700 tons of usable materials from being trucked to out-of-state landfills. What does 700 tons look like? Picture 350 cars or 234 adult elephants or 5 adult blue whales! Learn more about the advantages of reusing materials>>
The Store That Builds Homes
The final impact is on the many families who live in the affordable homes built or preserved by Morris Habitat for Humanity. Since 1985, Morris Habitat has served 400 families through its homebuilding, rehab, preserving and international housing solutions programs. Locally, we have built or rehabbed 74 homes and preserved 76 homes. Since the ReStore opened in 2007, its profits from selling donations have funded the construction of 18 affordable homes for low-income and middle-income families. Morris County is one of New Jersey’s most affluent counties, and yet there are thousands of families living in inadequate or substandard housing because they can’t afford the area’s high prices. Whenever possible, we build sustainable, energy-efficient and healthy housing.
We Are Changing Lives
Building homes does more than put a roof over someone’s head. In clean, decent, stable housing, the lives of hardworking families are enhanced and strengthened. You can read about the experiences of some of the Habitat families on the Homeowner Stories page. By shopping or donating to the ReStore, you can help create our vision of a world where everyone has a decent place to live.
