Anjou & the Little Pear
It’s mind boggling how the tireless elves at ReSTORE cheerfully accept items that look like candidates for the scrap heap, breathe new life into them and then offer them up for sale looking only gently worn. Where else in Vermont could you score a vintage player piano, a 1926 Singer sewing machine on its original oak and wrought-iron table, a working Betamax deck, Hummel figurines, and two dozen copies of What to Expect When You’re Expecting, all at preposterously low prices? Formerly ReCycle North, the nonprofit ReSTORE is a bargain hunters’ dream for used furniture, kitchen wares, electronics, art supplies, and appliances large and small. Whether you’re trying to unburden yourself of basement clutter or shopping for James Michener novels by the pound, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a better spot.
