January 18-23     Customers will receive a 40% discount

January 25-30     Customers will receive a 30% discount

On February 1, all items will return to their usual low prices.

The ReSOURCE is fully stocked with awesome lighting fixtures, plumbing, tubs, sinks, tile, flooring, trim, spindles, railings, furniture, windows, doors, and more.  Most items found in the ReSOURCE can be purchased at the discounted rate.  Radiators, lumber, cabinet sets, hardware, and antiques can be purchased at their usual low, low prices.

The ReSOURCE is open for business Tuesday-Saturday 10:00 am – 6:00 pm and Sunday 12:00 – 4:00 pm.

Kevin Hayes, Interim Executive Director for Buffalo ReUse, invites the community to visit the ReSOURCE to browse the stock and learn more about services and activities we provide.  Each Saturday, the organization holds small events geared to educate, engage, and excite the public about home repair and self-sufficiency.  This month, Saturday activities begin at 11:00am and focus on staying warm all winter long.

Additionally, Buffalo ReUSE accepts material donations year-round. Anyone with reusable materials, surplus supplies, or tools is invited to donate by dropping them off at the ReSOURCE or calling to schedule a pick up. Tax-deductible donation receipts are available at the time of donation.

    I love Buffalo Re-Use.  I never buy anything there because I’m usually looking for something REALLY hard to find, but browsing is lotsa fun.

    Could Buffalo Reuse also incorporate a listing of companies, craftsman, carpenters, electricians, plumbers etc that could work with what is purchased at Reuse? I have heard stories from people that went there and seen something they liked but had no idea how to fix it or were afraid of cost to fix it.

    I know someone who didn’t purchase a lighting fixture once because she needed a switch added to it and didn’t think it was possible! Even if she didn’t want to bother with it there are companies that will rewire or switch a lighting fixture for 5-10 dollars. I’m sure she would have purchased it if she knew considering the low cost of the fixture.

    Other examples include tubs, sinks,and radiators. Some need to be re-enameled or painted but people don’t even know where to begin or what the cost would be. While it can be expensive I feel it should be know it is possible.

    Stripping paint, replacements of missing parts of things, may also help. I know a lot of Reuse current customers are people that can’t afford to hire someone or people that can do these things blind folded, gagged, with one hand tied behind there back but there are middle of the ground customers that would rather pay people to do these things.

    First, let me say that I hope you stop down and check out the offerings in the store. Secondly, if you ask one of the store associates, they can either give you information about how to install or update an item, they’re all very helpful. ReUse also offers frequent workshops at which they cover stuff like this, check out their community calendar and stop in! Also, become a member for $5 and get notified of the workshops, special discounts and be a part of directing the organization through your votes and participation.

    We’re asked for referrals all the time, and we give out a printed referral list at the store. Most of the people we refer to are other used material and antique dealers. There are a few handyman/contractors on the list and some specialists (locksmiths, tub refinishers). We also have a high-tech paper Rolodex with some plumbers, electricians and collector/experts we know.

    I don’t know anyone who will rewire a lighting fixture for $5 or $10, unless it’s someone’s Granddad, just like I don’t know any cheap plumbers, a rare breed we’re asked about frequently. These are skilled trades, and if you want to make sure your installation or repair is safe and adheres to code, you usually need to hire the licensed professional. At the store we can give basic advice based on our experience, but I always make sure to tell people I’m not an electrician, plumber or locksmith and that if you want solid information, the professionals are the people you need to talk to.

    As Chris mentioned, we try to offer an array of basic “how to do it” classes. We’d like to do more, but these are for the most part dependent on the good will of skilled volunteers. Of course, you can visit the local library (free) and learn a whole lot of this type of thing yourself. I do that all the time, myself.
