Thanks and Appreciation

The next thing that needs to be addressed is the continual “Thanks” and “Appreciation” that we have for our Staff and Volunteers. It takes a team effort to keep a place like this running and with so many different things going on at any given time there are always different things happening. Donations coming in, inventory being sold and picked up, “fix it” projects on the go, changing of displays, testing, building, dismantling some things, scrapping out some things, and the list goes on. In between all that we have customers to serve  and truthfully that is our favorite part! We love it when a customer comes in and is inspired by what we do or finds that item that they are looking for or maybe that they weren’t looking for. 🙂

And the last thing that I want to address in this Blog is that in less than 6 weeks it is Christmas! Wow that year disappeared so quickly!

Christmas!

When we remenise about the first days here a the New Again Store we are so grateful for the blessings that have come our way for us to be blessed by community but also that we may bless community with our presence and our goals to do our best to be good stewards of what we are entrusted with.

It has been a continual privilege to serve this community as well as the broader community in the capacity that we do. I think the most exciting part is the relationships that have been build with customers, volunteers, and staff as a whole.

As we reflect on the year that has gone by and the impact that we have been to the community and the community has been to us it is amazing to think about all the great things that have been experienced along the way.

We are a wonderful support system for each other. How can one measure the value of things such as this. “Priceless” is the one word that comes to mind. “Blessed” is another word that describes the day to day experience here at this place we call “New Again”

So to round things out and close this blog!

We hope to see you at our next Sale December 7th and 8th! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the support. Every effort is appreciated more than you can know.  Blessings to you all as we approach the Christmas Season. 🙂

Summer Time Vacations!

So it has been a while since there has been a blog post! Yes we take vacations here every now and then as well! 🙂

As the summer has been quickly slipping by everyone here volunteers, board members and staff have all maneuvered their schedules to give room for the opportunity to have some vacation time. I am pretty sure I can confidently say that every person here definitely deserved to have some time away to refresh and rejuvenate!

The community that has formed here as a result of this amazing group effort lends itself to being a caring group in which we all consider each other an important part of our week. Almost an extended family so to speak. There is an incredible sense of belonging that happens when we join a group and take part in giving back to community. Part of the fruit of that labor is the care and concern for one another that happens. I for one have gained some incredible friendships not only with the awesome volunteers and staff that faithfully keep this project running from day to day but also through the connection of the locals and the customers that frequent our store.

Over the 3 and a half years that we have been here now, yes that time flew by!, it has been great to get to know many local folks and fellow business owners here in the Beamsville and surrounding area. We often do not realize the impact that an organization like this can have on the local and extended community. We have been blessed to hear some amazing stories from our customers who have enjoyed shopping at our store, donating to our store, enjoyed the conversations and getting to know the staff and volunteers at our store, and over all just enjoyed the energy and the helpful service that our staff and volunteers provide!

We have a continual turn over of items that come and go in our store and we are always grateful when folks come to us to share their excess things. We have become the “Hub” of Beamsville! When you are looking for something have a look at the New Again Store, you may find exactly what you are looking for!

If you have not been to the New Again Store than you will be in for a treat! We have made some changes to the floor plan of the store and we think it is more organized! You will like what you see. We are also showcasing some of the incredible talent of the folks that make beautiful things from materials that have been donated.

It is always worth dropping by and having a look! You may find something that you were looking for or you may find something that you did not realize you needed until you saw it!

As always be sure to share with all of your friends and families where we are! There are still many who have never graced us with their presence and we will do our best to welcome any new comers to our store!

We are always looking for volunteers with almost any talent as this store lends itself to many different trades and skill sets. If you are looking to be of service in your local community than stop by! We would love to meet you and would appreciate any time you would be willing to share!

Have a few hours and want something to do?

Some of our current wish list of needs:

  • We do Pick ups and we need a few able bodies to move some items from peoples homes to our store.
  • We would love to train a few more people on our cash.
  • We also would love to have a few people who like to sort through scrap materials and maybe even do a scrap run for us from time to time.
  • We always have a painting or re-purpose furniture project of some sort going on so if you like to paint or be creative we have a place for you as well!

 

So be sure and share this blog post with whomever you think may be interested!  If you are in the Beamsville area please drop by and say Hi! We would love to see you. If you have a few things that you think you do not need anymore give us a call or drop by, we will gladly take your donations.

Until next time!

See you soon!

Thinking Spring!

Time to consider your Spring and Summer projects!

So we are now into the Spring season! While the weather is on a bit of a roller coaster the days continue to come and go! The warm weather is coming 🙂 so now is the time to start thinking about what project you would like to tackle! Something small? Something big? Maybe just an addition piece of furniture, or possible a bench for your garden, or maybe even an outdoor kitchen!

The great thing about this store is that there is lots of variety when it comes to projects! You will most likely find some if not all of the supplies that you will need for your project!

Another simple option could be putting a mirror in or a coat rack or a bench can completely change the look of a space in your home to create a new look.

Maybe you are thinking about gardening!

To create a unique look sometimes a little imagination is needed to create a place of peace and enjoyment! We have some great ideas here for that as well! Looking for planter pots or a bench or some interesting wood pieces to add to your back yard paradise is all it takes!

Maybe something a simple as adding a really nice window box for flowers or herbs! Definitely come and check out our beautiful selection of volunteer handmade window boxes of all shapes and sizes.

Perhaps your patio needs a bit of a lift! How about a coffee table painted in a beautiful bright color?

It is the simple touches that often make an area a special place to be.

As you can see by the pictures above, we have lots of great ideas and selection to be sure!

We look forward to seeing you soon! 🙂

Spring is on its way!

As we work away at staying organized in the store and patiently wait for the warmer weather to come we continue to organize and create displays that are inviting and show all of the great treasures that we have available to sell.

Given that almost everything that is in our store is donations it is always an ever changing inventory. One week we may have lots of tools for sale and another week we may have lots of furniture available and then another week we may have lots of doors or cabinets available. We never know from one day to the next what surprises we will be sorting through.

Lately we have been getting a really good variety of donations giving us a really nice inventory of Kitchen Cabinets, Cabinet doors, Head boards, tools and some very interesting furniture and mirrors.

Some of our volunteers have been busy creating some fun Spring creations!

We have Bird Houses, Two Story Birdhouses, Beautiful Mirrors made with aged wood frames, Wooden Crates, Wooden Brackets, and many more very fun things.

As we receive donations of furniture we review the shape and the quality of what is there. When we come across wooden tables, chairs, coffee tables, dressers and the like on many occasions there are some scratches or some wear and tear on these. We then access if we want to do some repair or even paint some of these items with furniture chalk paint.

Our organization has been blessed with some incredibly creative people who can see the potential of many an item that comes in.  Pictures are always better than words in these cases and it is such a reward when something that has had some personal time investment of one of our volunteers or staff sells and the customers are excited about.

Rewarding on many levels. For the volunteer who accesses and decides what improvements need to be made and does them. The volunteer that sells the product as well as the very satisfied customer that purchases the great find of a treasure.

Lots of great reasons to stop by and have a look!

So if you are in  the area we can promise you that you will see lots of great things and meet some really great staff and volunteers. See you soon!

Yes we want you to mark your calender’s!

March 8, 9 and 10 we want you to celebrate with us!

We will be hosting our 3 Year Anniversary Sale.

We will be featuring some great sales on our already low pricing on lots of great inventory that can and will be the perfect addition to what ever project you have on the go.

We will have available FREE Refreshments, FREE Popcorn, and savings of up to 50% off tons of great treasures!

We have been serving this local Niagara region and we want to show our appreciation for supporting us in this venture to help support our local Christian Schools.

Our volunteers and staff have been diligently working hard for over 3 years to continue to keep our shelves stocked and store running from day to day and outside of the odd snow day we have maintained this venture for this time and will continue to do so.

We are so grateful to all who donate to this store as we as a community have diverted tons of usable materials from the landfill and on most occasions have been able to re use or re purpose most of the items that arrive here.

We are excited to see continued growth and support for our store and all that we do.

We are excited to meet new customers every week that are discovering some great finds.

We will be featuring some great deals on things such as doors, kitchen cabinets, counter tops, vanities, tools, lighting just to name a few! We also carry furniture, washers, dryers, stoves, nails, bolts, and much more hardware, cabinet pulls, light fixtures for bedroom, bathroom, living room, or kitchen, paint, and much much more.

For many first time visitors the comments that we hear are things like “Wow, I did not know you had so much stuff available here! I will be back” or “this will be my first stop when ever i am working on something” or “We are always able to find something here at this store as there is such a great selection of stuff to chose from”

So if you have not been to see our store and its ever changing displays and inventory there is no time like the present to drop by and see what is here. Pictures can only show you a glimpse! See you soon!

We have some incredibly talented and creative volunteers!

Our store has an inventory of more than 2 buildings worth of materials almost all of it being donated. This in itself is incredible to be sure.  One of the really exciting parts of being here is to see the creativity of the volunteers that dedicate their valuable time to our organization.

In this post I want to feature some of the incredible talent and creativity that our volunteers have. Not only are we a store that provides cost effective alternatives to renovation projects that you may be working on but we also feature some amazing creations made by some of the volunteers.

As spring is approaching and summer camping and family gatherings are being planned the thought of games comes to mind! Give our Handmade Penny Hockey a try!

We also make another board game called “Crokinole Hockey” This game is also great for the family gatherings or games nights.

The other creation that we have being made by our dedicated volunteers is Bird Houses. We feature some of these painted and some unpainted.  As we receive donations we have plenty of talent around here that is always creating  new things being made with the materials that are here.

We have custom made mirrors, made with weathered boards, we have hand made shelf brackets and we have all sorts of wooden boxes of different sizes and shapes. Some boxes are painted and some ready to be painted.

We have lots of conversations in our Volunteer coffee room at breaks about some of the things that we can make that will sell.  We have an incredibly dedicated group of people that love to use their skills, and talents to help others in any way they can and we are so privileged to be the recipients and the place where their talents can be enjoyed by a large supportive community that enjoys the fact that we are making great use of donations of all sorts.

What we have discovered in our almost 3 years here in this community is that most people would rather see some of the items that they do not need be put to use by someone else rather than have to bring all of it to the dump. We have become the place where so many things that come through here are either sold or re created into something new with the combination if things we have available to create with.

So if you have not been in the store for a while it is well worth the trip.

There is always something here that will peak your interest or be useful in one way or another for the list of ongoing projects that many folks have going!

Some folks drop by for inspiration, some drop by to see what is new, others drop by to enjoy the wisdom of our many volunteers and staff that are so helpful, many folks make our store one of their regular stops as the inventory here is constantly changing based on donations! That is the fun part! We never know what sorts of items will fill our store from one week to the next!  The next time you are near the Beamsville area be sure to drop by!

Oh and before I end this post, we are incredibly blessed to have the pleasure of working with the many volunteers that are here.

There are no words that can truly share the appreciation that is experienced by those that know for all of the precious time and efforts that you share with us here at the store.  Your impact on the community here, and this organization is not something that can be replaced.  Your presence among the team here is so important to all that are here and to the community that we work in. Thank you seems like such a small set of words but in the language that we speak it is the words we need to use so with our deepest appreciation “Thank You” for all that you do.

So with that said we look forward to seeing many folks drop by and see us and our team here and all the fun things that we have for sale.

Looking forward to Spring!

So we are in the month of January and a perfect time to start thinking about the spring projects that you would like to tackle. At the time of this writing we have experienced a deep freeze and now in a thaw and heading into another deep freeze!

Experiencing a warm day in between the cold ones give thought to what projects we can do in the year to come!

Some may want to tackle an outdoor project like a garden or installing a pool! Maybe even an outdoor kitchen with some brick construction! (we have 1000’s of bricks available)  Others may want to do that indoor project maybe a kitchen or a bathroom. Still others may want to work on the He-cave or She-cave that they have been dreaming about for some time.

Spring is always a great time to get the project on the go! Now is the time to start looking for the list of things needed for the job! A little planning can save tons of money on a project especially if you are able to shop at a store like ours! Regular check ins will give you the opportunity to find much of what you may need at highly reduced pricing!

 

Painted with Nantucket Navy and Parisian Charm Bluestone House Chalk paint.
Now to one of our Awesome stories as promised in our last blog post.

We have a Before picture, Part way through picture, and After picture.

This project started out in the wood stain it was in decent condition, pretty scratched up on the top but other than that in relatively good condition.

Is that Paint you ask? 🙂  Yes actually it is!

We carry a line of Furniture Chalk Paint in the store by the name of Bluestone House.

 

This simple project was done in very little time. The paint covers well and drys quickly and is toxin free. (so you could do this in your house) This turned out so well! The final result was beautiful! Simple things that can be done to completely change the look of something and fit it with the desired results. This customer was thrilled with the results!

If you are near Beamsville or cruising through the Niagara region be sure and drop by the store and have a look. We look forward to seeing you soon!

Hello 2018!

So as the  new year begins it brings on lots of great things.

A new year of plans and projects ready to be started and hopefully completed!

As we move along with our blog posts it is always great to have some feedback so if you have an idea or a subject that you would like us to share please feel free to let us know.

Over the few years that we have been here we have seen so many great things happen and the intention is to share some of the great stories that we have been privileged to be a part of.

New Again is a place where the creative minds definitely meet.

We have many conversations discussing ways of using some of the donated items. We have some very crafty folks that are amazing with wood. Out of the remnant pieces from a door and cabinet company we create things such as wooden crates, wooden brackets, wooden bird houses, wooden bat houses, penny hockey and much more!

With a little paint and creativeness with colors, cabinet doors and cabinet hardware, we have created signs, chalkboards, and coat racks, and jewelry racks. Sometimes we get a piece of furniture  and with our Bluestone House Chalk paint line we paint it and make it new! It is really  neat to see the before and after pics of some of the projects that are completed here in the store.

Painted with Iron Wood and French Country Bluestone House Chalk Paint

When you need a light fixture we most likely will have something, looking for a bathroom sink or mirror, we have lots of variety to choose from.

Need a few cabinets for your workshop, stop by and see the selection in our “Furniture” Barn.

Need a window for your shop we most likely have that as well. Want to build an outdoor fire pit? We have oodles of bricks out there. In fact if you are building a house we have enough brick here to build a few houses.

We are looking forward to what 2018 will bring! We especially look forward to sharing with you some great stories and information of the great things that are happening here at New Again!

Be sure to drop by and see us as soon as you can! You are going to love it!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

So to start this off, here is our Christmas Hours! 

We will be CLOSED from Saturday Dec 23, 2017 to Monday Jan 1, 2018

We will REOPEN  regular business hours Tuesday Jan 2, 2018

Our dedicated staff and volunteers are taking a much needed break to take some time to enjoy family and friends during this holiday season! Thank you one and all for the terrific job being done day in and day out at our store! 

Since this is the first Christmas message online reflecting on the last 3 years that we have been here will be more words than what can be written for this blog!

So a few points of interest hopefully cover a few notable things!

Since taking the property over in Oct of 2014 this place has seen an incredible amount of work done by many hands along the way. In the beginning days we wondered how we would fill the store and now over 3 years later we have 2 buildings plus filled with treasures to sell.

This past year has been a year of much work and continued dedication to the store. There are not enough words that can express the gratitude for all the work that continues to happen each and every day by our volunteers and staff.

Knowing each one of the folks that plays a part in working with this organization gives me an inside scoop as to the reality of the amount of work that does get done daily, weekly, monthly and so on.

Welcome to our store!

We are a group of dedicated Volunteers and Staff who work diligently to create a place of wonder to all those that like to discover some practical and fun things to do! If you are working on a Do-it-Yourself project or if you are renovating your home or even if you have some craft projects in mind this is the place you want to visit.

This store is run by a Board of Directors, there is 1 full time and 2 part time staff and the many volunteers which I call “Champions” who have committed much of their time and energy to keep things running smoothly.

The purpose of the proceeds that this store generates is to support 2 local christian schools, that being Covenant Christian School in Smithville and John Knox Christian School in Stony Creek. These schools are directed by the NACE organization. (you can click on the names of the schools they are linked directly to their websites)

We receive donations of gently used materials of everything from building materials to tools, lighting, wood, and much much more!

We then process. By this I mean we look it over, check each item over for resale value, repair, clean or package the items and display them in the store for a fraction of the price of what you would buy them new.

If you are downsizing or simply want to purge some of your “treasures”  we would love to take them off your hands and be sure they are put to good use! You can click here for a list of donations that we accept.

We have a really creative group of people here that love to share ideas of re purposing many of the items that come in. We have lots of artistic folks that create some amazing things with some of the materials that are purchased from our store. Check out our “Inspiration Station” in our store as well as online here which showcases some of the great things you can do with some creativity and often a little paint!!

Our volunteers are a group blessed with a wealth of knowledge and can often be very helpful in many a questions asked. Our volunteers consist of many a retired tradesman as well as many women with many different skills. We also have a few students that help us out and love to learn from the wisdom that they are surrounded by when they are here. It is awesome to see the interaction and the team effort of the volunteers on a daily basis.

The intent of this blog is to share some of these stories with you as well as share some of the fantastic stories of the faithful volunteers.

One of the other goals is to be inspiring! We want to share some before and after pics of some of our projects as well as many a project that our customers have shared with us. What we have learned is that the only limit you have is your imagination! As much as we are inspiring those around us in this community we have experienced so much inspiration from our customers and supporters of this store!

We are located in the heart of wine country in Niagara. Surrounded by such beautiful landscape here in Beamsville. We are located at 5108 King street which is the official “Niagara Wine Route”

So when you are out and about checking out all the wonderful things that Niagara has to offer be sure and stop by our store of treasures!

Or come and visit the store in person, you will be glad you did.
