Photo: SHANE WENZLICK By JESSIE COLQUHOUN An op shop on steroids'' -- that's how operations man- ager Eric Holmes describes Habitat for Humanity's Restore. The second-hand store sells everything from trailers and caravans to cups and saucers and even the kitchen sink. Everything for sale has been donated and the money raised goes back to Habitat for Humanity, a worldwide charity that helps people into homes. The store is having a huge sale in time for Christmas, starting tomorrow at Habitat for Humanity's East Tamaki site. Mr Holmes wants the com- munity to know the store has a wide range of good quality products on sale and now's the chance to get some affordable, unique gifts. Habitat for Humanity runs a home ownership scheme where it builds affordable homes for families in need. Families must work to build the house for 500 hours. They rent the completed house from Habitat for Humanity for five years until they can refinance and buy it. The organisation relies on volunteers doing the work to keep homes affordable and in 2010 it clocked up 14,000 hours of volunteer time around the country. In south Auckland an 11-home build is under way at Wymondley Rd in Otara and is due to be finished in August 2011. Habitat's next project will be building four homes in Mangere. Mr Holmes says Restore is always looking for clean, tidy, donations for the shop and Habitat for Humanity is in desperate need of some land to build on. Restore's Christmas sale runs from tomorrow to Saturday at 8 Ormiston Rd, East Tamaki. Shop hours are weekdays 8.30am to 5pm and Saturday 9am to 2pm.
