ReStories

Shoppers at the Washington County ReStore have come to know Raytonia McIntyre—and often ask for her by name. She takes pleasure in helping others - it’s one of the great joys of her life.

Thanh Nguyen has a plan. Crafted on a random piece of paper at a Habitat build site, this plan is his future...and it's a great one.

After a few years sampling a musician's life in Atlanta, New York and Chicago, Joseph Drushal found his way to Portland. What drew him here was its enthusiastic spirit of activism.

There's no doubting Jose Rodriguez's determination. He's been working diligently at the Portland ReStore since January, every night, Monday through Friday, and then at a Habitat build site most Saturdays in an effort to complete his required sweat equity hours.

It's sounds romantically trendy to house a Habitat ReStore in an old abandoned winery, but the way Brieana Weaver tells it, it was way more shabby than chic.

It was a friend who first turned Tracy Livie on to The ReStore. They had just bought furniture from the Washington County ReStore and they needed Tracy's advice.

"They were asking me about refinishing it, and they told me about how wonderful the store is," she said.

"I don't eat anything I can't identify," said Kate Ayres.

Here's a fresh face you should get to know. It belongs to Andrew Carlson, new assistant manager at the Clark County Habitat for Humanity Store.

"Customer service is my heart, and I love being with people!" said Petty Blake.

Every exclamation makes that pretty obvious, and it's what makes us thrilled to have Petty on our team.

On Tuesdays Som Tamang often works behind the ReStore register. He's a Habitat future homeowner working to build 500 sweat equity hours.

He's half way there. At the end of April Som and his wife, Basanti, hit the 250 mark, and they've only been at it since February.

When warmer weather coaxes tulips and daffodils to emerge, sprucing up the homestead and spring cleaning take the top slots on many to-do lists.

You may not often see Karen Nicola in the ReStore, but she’s there, working hard four days each week. She’s kept busy in the Washington County ReStore warehouse pricing "littles’"- hardware and basically anything that isn’t large like furniture.

Fifty-seven miles worth of trim! If you lined up the 60 or so loads of trim WestPac has donated to The ReStore over the past 7 months, it would go roughly 57 miles.
