ReStore – Toy Kitchen Set

I’m back again checking out all the goodies at the local ReStore shop in Reston. This time I met Paul, the store manager.

Child’s Wooden Play Kitchen

This first item I want to blog about is a sweet-heart of a deal for a young child probably within the range of 3 to 4 years of age.

This adorable wooden kitchen corner has a pretend three burner stove with knobs, oven, refrigerator, white sink, wooden cutting board, timer and some shelves to store play items. It is painted in bright red, blue, yellow and white. It would work well in a play area.

I seen a similar wooden play kitchen posted online as a Cook’s Corner Wooden Play Kitchen. Melissa & Doug, also, have a wooden look-alike kitchen for sale. Brand new this runs about $130 without the extra accessories this one comes with. The ReStore price is only $35.

I noticed this play area comes with two lidden wooden pots, red & white pot holders, and an electric mixer. If you turn the handle on top of the mixer it will turn in the bowl. These accessory items are generally purchased separately.

Think how much fun a child would have playing with this pretend play kitchen.

Winnie the Pooh Crib

I noticed the Winnie the Pooh wooden crib as I came into the store, (see below photograph). The outside of the crib has a cute Winnie the Pooh bear looking in a window with the tree branch in the background. There are also a couple of bumblebees in the the top corners of the crib.

Winnie to Pooh is a classic tale of a young boy’s adventures with his friend Winnie the Pooh and others.

Winnie the Pooh was the name of a teddy bear character in book by A. A. Milne. Milne named the main character Christopher after his son and his teddy bear. Christopher Milne named his toy bear after Winnie, a Canadian black bear, he saw at the London Zoo.

The bear cub was purchased from a hunter for $20 by Harry Colebourn in White River, Ontario while he was en route to England to fight in the First World War. Colebourn named the bear Winnie after his hometown in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Colebourn left Winnie at the London Zoo while his unit was in France but later donated the bear to the London Zoo. Winnie became a became a popular attraction at the zoo.

Offenbacher’s Patio Chairs

The photograph below shows three Offenbacher’s patio chairs made in the Provence pattern. Offenbacher’s offers high quality patio furniture.

These patio chairs are made of cast aluminum in a double latticework design, scooped high back. They will set a graceful air to your patio or porch. As an added bonus, aluminum patio chairs will not rust when exposed to the elements.

There is a sign on the chairs stating they are price marked at $90 each but the chairs retail new for $272 each.

Halloween Supplies

Before you know it, fall days will be upon us along with Halloween.

Instead of purchasing pricy decorations for the holiday, you can stop in the ReStore shop and inexpensively pick up things for your decorating needs.

They also have a few wreaths and such for the Christmas holiday.


The photograph on the right, shows the back nook loaded with Halloween flags, trick-or-treat bags, and other decorations.

All of the above items were for sale this week in the ReStore shop in the Herndon/Reston area. I wanted to mention that one of my readers “Trail Diva” wished she had a ReStore shop in her hometown but, unfortunately, does not.

Hi Paul, nice meeting you today! ReStore shops are run by the Habitat for Humanity, a non-profit organization helping to provide housing for those in need. Thank you for allowing me to take photographs and to blog about your special store.

  1. L.,
    Thank you for reading our blog and for the nice comments. Have a wonderful day.

  2. Chum,
    Thank you for reading our web site. One suggestion might be to have photographs of your online products. I think it would be hard to sell fashion without photographs. My opinion, only. Readers any ideas? Have a great day.
