The DC area's Nonprofit Thrift Store for Home Improvement & Architectural Salvage

Mission
To lift up communities in the DC area by reducing construction waste; creating green jobs; and making repairs affordable for low-income folks, homeowners, small businesses, and nonprofits.

Description
At our very large warehouse, you can donate new and used building materials to receive a tax deduction, or you can purchase materials at prices that are 40% - 80% below retail.

Thrift store proceeds go right back into reuse! We "lift up communities" by reducing construction waste, creating green jobs, and making repairs affordable for homeowners, low-income folks, small business owners, and nonprofit groups. We also provide public education about local recycling & reuse options, and donate building materials to partner nonprofits and neighbors in need.

Great place to go for salvaged house material that can be given new life. My wife and I spend hours browsing in this place. So much stuff! I'm not sure how the pricing is set up though. Some items seem like they're a steal, other seem fair and some will make you scratch your head and say "really?" The customer service is awesome and the people that work there are super friendly. We go about once every other month.

Unique blend of hard-to-find, boutique, and affordable common items usually donated from renovations in the area. Great community presence and a worthwhile stop each time.

This place is awesome. I always find great items at great prices. Everyone there is super friendly and they even host events to show their support for the community. If you get a chance, I definitely recommend you check it out.

The selection of materials & supplies is very large however the pricing is somewhat scattered. Best to check it out for yourself and keep an open mind of what you can make!

Love this place. You can search for hours and find some real good second hand deals for your place. from wood to full kitchen installation. Second hand stoves and windows and all kinds of stuff. There are also some cute stores out front who sell second hand furniture and designed furniture.

Another great business just outside of DC. Salvaged and reclaimed building materials for cheap. Lumber and hardwood. Old furniture and tools. Great for artists and craftsmen alike.

Found a vintage door and door hardware that matches the existing doors in our 1917 house. Amazing! The vintage hardware section was amazing. Tons of options and organized by style which made it easy to find what we needed.
