Decorate with DIBS!

Thrift stores are a great place to find unusual & unique.

If you are looking for an addition to your collection of birds or lighthouses DIBS! On resale is a great place to look. If you are looking for a vintage or midcentury piece of furniture we get them in.  If you like to repurpose things you will find inspiration at DIBS! On Resale.


Shoppers Share Ideas

I always talk with our customers and they frequently tell me what they plan to do with something they bought at the store. An old relish dish will make a great jewelry tray and wooden spoons will be used in garden art. So I asked for some pictures to share.

One of our customers has decorated her bathroom in a jungle theme with items she has repurposed from thrift stores.  A leopard print top she found at DIBS! On Resale was taken apart so she could use the fabric to make a window scarf. The towels and artwork came from DIBS! as well. Another customer had always wanted a four-poster bed and found hers at DIBS! along with a curio cabinet that was just the right size for her bedroom.

This Mid-Century china cabinet recently found a new home in a “Jazz” themed room with a mid-Century style.  And an old entertainment center found new life as a beautiful child’s kitchen complete with a scenic view out the window!

So much creativity! Shop DIBS! On Resale for your next treasure or inspiration, you won’t be disappointed!

Does This Work???

At DIBS! On Resale, we receive electrical donations of all sorts. “Does this work?” is a frequently asked question. We see beautiful and unusual lamps of all sizes, candle warmers and fountains. We get electronics from clocks to radios and kitchen gadgets galore. There are tools of all sorts to dry, cut and curl hair. Games, puzzles, and toys with all the bells and whistles. We test them all.

Look for the BLUE DOT 🧿

Our Team Tests Everything

Bob helps to keep all the gadgets and gizmos sorted. Rich cleans & keeps the cords under control. And Bruce liked the massage chair he tested so much he came back a bought it! If something does not work it will be used for parts or put into a bin to be recycled.

Once the item is tested and cleaned it is ready to be put out on the floor. When you decide to make a purchase look for the blue dot 🧿 to see that it was tested. AND we will happily plug it in for you if you want further proof.

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.
