Cape Abilities Furniture Rescue & Restore
Cape Abilities Furniture Rescue & Restore gives old furniture new life and provides paid employment for our participants.
What started as a fun project with just a few pieces of cast-off furniture grew into a regular rescue and recycling operation after the finished pieces were brought to Cape Abilities Thrift Shop and customers snapped them up.
Soon our crew was scouring local swap shops for pieces in need of a little TLC and bringing them to our newly established workshop at our Cochran Center in Eastham. Furniture Rescue and Restore Manager Nick Seeley gathered tools, paint and other items, and began training workers, who have proved both capable and enthusiastic! Just look at some of the beauties they’ve brought back to life!
Check out these amazing summer collections created and produced by our participants from our Rescue and Restore program! Cape Cod Flags, surf board hangers, and surf board bottle openers!
Visit our special Cape Cod Flag page to see how our Rescue and Restore team created these beauties, and where you can purchase one for your home or business!
The sale of all hand-crafted Furniture Rescue and Restore items support skills training and jobs for our participants. Our Rescue and Restore team is proud of the work they are creating and we hope that you will enjoy having their restorations in your home! Most are available at Cape Abilities’ Thrift Shop in West Yarmouth year-round, our Route 6A Farm in Dennis, and at Cape Abilities’ Farm to Table Market and Gallery in Chatham during the summer season. Product availability varies so call ahead first. Our retail store hours and contact information are listed at the bottom of this page.
