ReStories: The Mirror

As told by Lydia, Hikes Point ReStore manager…

 

A while back a guy brought an unframed mirror to Hikes Point ReStore as a donation. Gerry, one of the Hikes employees, explained that we couldn’t take the mirror without a frame because it was on our “do not accept list.” This was because they break easily and we don’t want the staff or volunteers getting cut. Gerry offered a “donations referral” list but the donor didn’t say much and left with his mirror.

About a week later he showed back up in the donations warehouse at Hikes Point. Without a word he walked in, handed the same mirror he had attempted to donate the previous week to Gerry and left . Only now it was framed. He had hand built a frame for the mirror, and he did a really great job! Who knows? We may piggyback off his work and sand down the frame, stain it and turn it into something really nice. It’s got a lot of potential.

 

If you have a story you would like to share about something you donated or purchased from the ReStore we would love to hear it! Email us at HabitatRestoreLou@gmail.com
