APRIL SHOWERS DO BRING FLOWERS BUT….

We Have Beautiful Floral Arrangements at DIBS! On Resale All Year Around!

Everyone loves a bit of color this time of year. And you will always find fresh and interesting flower arrangements at DIBS! On Resale no matter what the season. Some of the silk flower donations we get in are old and tired and  just need a little love.  Marcia fills that niche when it comes to silk flowers and dusty arrangements.

Who knew you could wash silk flowers!

Marcia is a “retired” florist and on Monday mornings you will find her working in the back cleaning, sorting and rearranging. She has a collection of tools to help her clean and spruce up the silks and a great sellection of vases to create new arrangements with.  By the end of the morning she brings  beautiful floral arrangements out for sale.

Above are some of the beautiful arrangements Marcia has created for the store.  Stop in and see what new floral arrangements have been brought out this week.

THE BIG YELLOW TRUCK

DIBS! On Resale has a Big Yellow Delivery Truck

and we like to see it on the road or on stage! Sonya and Stacey make pick-ups and deliver for us on Thursdays.  And this past week the Big Yellow Truck was used as a prop in the WMCHS Spring Musical “GODSPELL“.

We will Pick Up Furniture Donations

If you have large furniture items to donate and don’t have a way to bring them in, please give the store a call.  We will schedule a date to make that pick up.  If Thursdays won’t work for you, we will do our best to find volunteers to make the pick up on another day.

We will  also deliver your furniture purchase.  We do have a general fee of $40 for delivery and keep it within 15 miles.  Larger items or further distances will be pro-rated.

Stop in and see what we have in the store.  There is something new everyday!

BOOKS, BOOKS & MORE BOOKS!

Well Organized Book Shelves

At DIBS! On Resale you will find well organized book shelves.  They are kept that way by Barb who has been with DIBS! On Resale since it opened back in 2012 After sorting thousands of donated books she has learned a lot about books. She carefully looks over every book that is put on the shelf to be sure each is in good shape and is not musty or written in. Then she prices and displays them according to topic.

Bibles, Childrens books and more.

We carry children’s books, inspirational books, best sellers and most everything in between.  There is a nice selection of cookbooks as well.  In the music section you will find song books for Piano and organ and a variety of instruction books for piano, band instruments and guitar.

New books added weekly

New books are added every week and sometimes daily so stop in for first Dibs!
Did you know January is national puzzle month?  You will find them at Dibs! On Resale too.

Find Creative Inspiration at DIBS! On Resale!

Resale Shoppers Are Creative People!

When I cashier I sometimes ask customers what they are going to do with an item they are purchasing.  I often get  very creative answers.   One lady described to me how she used bud vases and tea cups to create garden art.  One customer bought a large armoire and was going to paint it red!  Another couple bought nylon stockings to fill with salt, an experiment to see if it would help to melt ice on the roof.

Ideas come from their imagination, magazines, remodeling shows and Pinterest to name a few. And when I look around DIBS! On Resale, I see a lot of the supplies you might need for those inspirations.  From furniture remake ideas to repurposed  dishes here are a few ideas to check out.  

We have a French style table that would look beautiful in chalk paint – for inspiration click here 

Here is a easy bird feeder using mugs that would be fun to make with kids.

  

Teacups make cute little planters

Have you seen the dressers where the drawers are replaced with baskets?  Or poetry painted on old chairs?  There are lots of ideas for upcycling old sweaters  but how could you repurpose an old suit coat?  Teacups make cute little planters and succulents grow well in unique containers.  What are your ideas? What are you looking for at DIBS! On Resale?  We have a wonderful community out there who donate to DIBS! On Resale and they might just have what you are looking for.  Share in the comments on Facebook –  Then stop in and find what you need to spark your imagination.

Shoes For Every Occasion At DIBS! On Resale

Shoes!

From Brand New Shoes To Totally Worn Out Shoes We Take Them All.

A lot of shoes are donated to DIBS! On Resale and we have Jill to sort, clean and display them all.  Starting in the back room Jill finds the mates and inspects and cleans each pair.  Only the best are put out on display.  On our shelves you will find all sizes from kids shoes to adults.  We also have sports shoes in season.  Cross country spikes, Soccer shoes and ice skates to name a few.

And what happens to the shoes that don’t pass inspection?  They are banded in pairs and put into large mesh bags. These bags are picked up by our ministry partners to be recycled.  Nothing goes to waste at DIBS! On Resale.
