I can not think of too many things I would rather do than go shopping.  And if my shopping trip happens to help the community, all the better.  If you feel the way I do, then I have an idea for you.

Check out the Habitat for Humanity Restore Tag Sale going on throughout the month of December at the Dutchess County Habitat for Humanity Restore, 625 Dutchess Turnpike in Poughkeepsie between Kmart and Burger King in the Dutchess Turnpike Plaza..  Habitat for Humanity restore sells new and gently used furniture, home goods, tools, building materials, windows, doors, and much more to the public at a fraction of the retail price.  Restore has new items in store daily.

Proceeds from the ReStore help fund Habitat’s mission of eliminating poverty housing in Dutchess County and across the world.  So shop to your heart's content, and know that you are doing a great thing.  For more information about Habitat for Humanity, visit their website at http://www.habitat.org/
