“If you can Dream it you can Do it!”

What an awesome statement and for many so true. When you look into history and you see the amazing things accomplished by many a person who just had a dream you can see that it is possible! So have that dream get it on paper and work towards making those dreams a reality! 🙂

It seems like it was only yesterday that we were still in 2018, we are already a few weeks into the new year and need to start thinking about what the next season will bring to us! We are in the middle of winter and so far not to much snow or cold, having said that the next week or two looks like it will be colder temperatures which is to be expected.

This however cannot stop the dreams of working on that new project or bringing to a close the current project. Maybe even consider a summer project outside. Oh what fun it is to dream and it is even more fun to make those dreams become realities!

Projects can be a big as building a house to refinishing a basement to even painting a piece of furniture for the first time! There are so many things that can be accomplished!

I trust that you know by now, that we love it when people come here with their projects on the go. Really great things happen!  A person comes into the store with a project and talks to our awesome team of staff and volunteers and while we may not be able to provide everything needed you will definitely walk away with some of the items on your list and maybe if you have gleaned some wisdom from the team here you will go with a confidence that yes you can and will finish that project! The customer most often finds some of the items on the list, and then when all things are done they are excited to come and share with us the pictures of the completed project! So fun!

We love hearing about before and after and we love it when our customers share their stories and their pictures of the amazing things that can be done with the treasures they find at our store.

If you are a regular customer at our store you will know that we also always have a project or two on the go here as well. We are always upgrading, or making things more efficient somewhere on site here! Being a “re use it” store makes it fun and challenging to make things happen with what we have available! Our goal is to not spend any money at all here and with most of the projects that we have done here we have done with minimal to no expense which is awesome!

So what is the point that is being made today!

Dream about those projects that you want to accomplish, than act on those dreams and come and see us. We may be able to help you reach your goals and accomplish what you set out to do! At the very least we will definitely be able to encourage you to keep going forward! The time does not stop and there is no time like the present!

Save the date!

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!

Silent Auctions are always fun!

So many folks love a good bidding war! 🙂

So we have a “SILENT AUCTION”

In case you did not know we do our best to have a Monthly Silent Auction on the go!

We have a display with numbered items, usually between 12 and 20 items of things that have been donated that are  unique or antique or popular! (At least we think may be popular!:-))  We set them up around the corner from where our cash counter is and there is a book on the display where you can place your bid!

We have had some really fun things from antique lamps to new tools, from small to large items, We have had beautiful prints, and handmade blankets, we have had antique tools to a beautiful piece of furniture. A home popcorn maker to a model air plane and as you can guess the list goes on!

So typically our auction runs for about 3 weeks.  We always end it on a Wednesday at 3:00 pm!  This allows for time for the winners to pick up their item before the weekend or on the weekend. (Once the auction has closed on the chosen Wednesday we appreciate it that the winners get her as soon as they possibly can to pick up their items.)

So for this month let me share with you some of the fun things that you will find in our Silent Auction for July of 2018~ closing day on this auction is July 25th, 2018 at 3:00 PM. Have a look at the pictures on this blog this is a selection that we currently have on for auction!

If any of these items interest you be sure to get in soon and get your bid in! Once the bidding starts there is no telling how the bidding will go! 🙂

 

We have lots of great things happening here at the store! Great deals to be had on many an item that is very useful to you or someone you know!

Be sure to stop in often not only to keep an eye on your bid but also to see the new arrivals of things that come in on a daily basis!

We are always so grateful to our staff and volunteers who continue to keep this “exciting adventure” from day to day. Without the many hours of the volunteers this store, or shall I say this “place of treasures”would not be what it is today! So much appreciation to those that grace us with their time and energy. We are also so very grateful for the continued support of our local community as well as those that travel to come and see us!

Looking forward to seeing you soon! 🙂

Summer is definitely here!

At the time of this writing we are in a heat warning with temperatures feeling like over 40 degrees Celsius. Yes this is a hot week!

I would guess that now that the kids are off for summer break the beaches would be the go to place on days like this or even the local municipal public pool or a neighbor that may have a pool they are willing to share. Either way, an opportunity to stay cool and enjoy family and friends is what summer is all about and I hope that many of you get the opportunity to do so this summer!

So what do we do at the store on days like this you ask? We do our best to stay indoors and if we have to be outside be careful to stay hydrated and listen to each other when we need to stop and take a break!

It is also a great time to plan for the days ahead when the heat dissipates and the cooler working temperatures come in the next few days.

Campfires! Yeah!! 🙂

So it is summer time! Time for camping away from home but also lots of great backyard parties and campfires. This makes for  a great time to think about making that fire pit. Have you ever thought about what you would like that to look like? How about using some brick for this. We currently have a great stock of 3 different colors of bricks to make a great fire pit or even an out door kitchen for that matter 🙂

So while you are thinking about that fun time in the sun either at the camp site or at the cottage or your back yard, did you know that we have some great Hand Made, by our Amazing Volunteers, Games! We have Penny Hockey, Krocinole Hockey, and a few others. These are perfect games for the summer time fun! Some have told us how they have tournaments with these games with family and friends! We always love to hear the great stories of enjoyment especially from the items that we create onsite here at New Again!

Thinking along the lines of campfires now,

Did you know that we have available boxes with kindling wood and fire wood!

You are definitely going to love the prices! As well you will love the wood! Perfect for

the campfire!

Summer is such an awesome time to do the outdoor projects that you have been dreaming about. Be sure to drop by and see what we have in store for you. Everyday we continue to welcome new customers to our store and for that we are grateful. We are excited to be a part of this great community in Niagara as we grow into what is referred to as the “go to” place first! You may just find what you are looking for!

So as we look forward to helping you out with your summer project if that be a big project or a smaller project such as a campfire  be sure to drop by and see if we can be of help to you.

One of our favorite customers once said to us “Miss a day, Miss a deal” 

This is definitely a true statement on many occasions and it is always worth dropping by. You may just find exactly what your looking for or you may get some great ideas from the amazing staff and volunteers that grace us with their much appreciated help every day!

So until next time! Enjoy the summer! Stay cool on the Hot days and enjoy the beautiful days!

We shall see you soon!

Benches, Gardens and Spring!

So now that the spring weather is trying to make an appearance with the beautiful sunshine today I thought it would be fun to share with you some of the latest projects we have on the go!

As we plan for the spring and summer months and very soon we will be able to get into the gardens and enjoy exploring the creative energy that we have in setting up a place of enjoyment at our homes or cottages there is some enjoyment in adding pieces of furniture to that mix!

So here at the store we have lots of materials that we like to re purpose.  So we do what many folks do we go on Pinterest and we have a look or we check out Google Images and do some searches to get some ideas! Wow that can be overwhelming! 🙂 It is easy to get lost in these sites and all of the pictures with so many great ideas to choose from!

For the purpose of this blog though we chose to stay focused on a specific topic.

We have quite a few really good Head Board and Foot Boards for beds in stock. So we took a look online and came up with several thoughts and ideas.

Simple benches for the garden, deacons benches with storage, a solid bench with enough clearance to put baskets underneath for storage. Then we shared it with a few of our volunteers that like to work with wood and do some of this re purposing. Low and behold we came up with some beautiful projects currently on the go!

This definitely, like most things here, is a group effort. We have the visionaries who come up with the ideas, the craftsman/women who make the item and then the creatives here that do the final touches like the painting and the displays! Along the way the input of many creates a beautiful finished product with lots of love added to the project from the passionate group of volunteers and staff that enjoy the challenge of creating something from materials that would otherwise end up in the landfill!

These are wonderful times of seeing the encouragement of the volunteers and the staff as they create a wonderful collection of unique pieces that you would never be able to find elsewhere! 🙂

So the pictures above are ideas that we found, the pictures below are projects in process as we speak! We are excited to see the final results and look forward to helping you find possibly just what you were looking for!

For now we have created a few benches, as we listen to the customers wonderful comments of the creativity and workmanship that happens here we are also hearing about requests for Deacon’s Benches! So who knows what may happen next!!

We welcome your input on color choice and ideas and look forward to seeing you visit the store to be inspired by all of the incredible talent that we are blessed with in this community we call “New Again Construction Essentials Store!

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! 🙂

Isn’t that a truth. The statement goes something like this I believe ” The older I get the faster time goes”

So in that context lets talk about time!

There is no time like the present to do that visit that you have had on your “Round Tuit”  We had this plaque donated so it landed in my office! Worthy of a read for sure!

We have a well established business happening here and for those that have been visiting our store on a regular basis they are seeing all the great things that are happening here! For those that have not been here yet and have it on your list of things to do, the sooner the better!

One of our regular customers made a statement once “Miss a day Miss a deal!” and that is very true!  There is often times like that where one day a person will come in see something and than go home to either measure or see if the item will work only to come back the next day to find it sold!

So keeping with the theme of time. It feels like  yesterday that we entered this year 2018 and here we are almost 1/4 of the way through the year already!

Looking forward to what spring will bring, now is the time to think about what project you may want to do!

Maybe you were thinking about a summer project, a great time to tackle something major.

Every day there is things being donated and things being sold! Everyday is a new day here at the store where we get to feature all sorts of fun things.

Some of our selection includes everything from nails to the wood to the piece of furniture to tile to lights to lamps to everything in between!

Interior Doors, exterior doors, sliding doors, hinges, door handles, and often times all the little parts that you need to complete an installation!

Shelving, storage units, cabinetry for a kitchen or a He-cave or She-cave!

Pictures always tell a great story so here are a few pictures for you so see a small taste of the great things available!

Looking 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!
