WILLIAMSBURG — Habitat for Humanity Peninsula and Greater Williamsburg announced on this week that shipping is now available on many items for sale in the ReStore eStore.

The eStore features a curated collection of items exclusively available online, including antique and vintage collectibles, artwork, books, electronics, handbags and luggage, home and garden items, furniture and more, according to Habitat for Humanity Peninsula and Greater Williamsburg.

“Not everyone is able to get to the ReStore as often as they want, so this makes the ReStore available 24/7,” said Jennifer Pye, Procurement Manager at Habitat for Humanity Peninsula and Greater Williamsburg. “Many of our customers come in looking for unique pieces. This way they will be able to see many of them in one place, and now we can even ship it directly to them.”

“Ultimately,” Pye continued, “our goal is to raise funds to build more houses.”

Habitat for Humanity Peninsula and Greater Williamsburg notes all revenue generated by the Habitat ReStores goes toward building Habitat houses in the local community that are sold to residents through the affiliate’s first-time Homebuyer Program. The bulk of ReStore merchandise is available at the Habitat ReStores in Williamsburg, Newport News and Yorktown, which feature new and gently used merchandise sold at discounts of 30-90% off.

The ReStore also adds that items not available for shipping can be picked up at the Williamsburg Habitat ReStore, located at 1303 Jamestown Road. Pickup is available on Fridays from 1 to 4 p.m., or by appointment.
