Preservationists, pickers and crafters alike are invited to shop for antique home furnishings and pieces thanks to a new partnership between two local organizations.

Historic Madison Inc. and Habitat for Humanity of Jefferson County have announced a partnership to help homeowners of historic buildings with their restoration projects. 

The Habitat ReStore is now selling HMI architectural salvage including windows, doors, shutters, fireplace covers and more.

“This new initiative with the Habitat ReStore was a natural for us,” John Staicer, president and executive director of HMI said in a release. “Our architectural salvage items will be much more easily available for purchase than they have been in the past. Sales should increase as a result. Plus, we will be sharing the proceeds of these sale items with Habitat for Humanity to assist in their worthy goals of building and rehabilitating homes in the community.”

HMI and Habitat will evenly divide the proceeds from the sale of what ReStore Development director Ann Lostutter called “the HMI collection.” 

“We are thrilled with this addition of quality historic materials to our stock of building materials,” Lostutter said in the release. 

Habitat is currently rehabilitating a historic home in downtown Madison.

The ReStore, 931 Lanier Drive, is open from noon to 2 p.m. Tuesdays and Wednesdays, noon to 5 p.m. Thursdays, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Fridays and 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturdays.
