PHOENIX --  If you're looking to remodel your home, but do not have a lot of money to spend, Stardust Building Supplies is the place for you. It's a home-improvement thrift store.

"We have pretty much anything the home-improvement, DIY folks would really like to use -- anything that you need for home-improvement projects," Karen Jayne, the executive director, told 3TV's Ryan O'Donnell.

Not only does Stardust sell fixtures and appliances, the 501(c)(3) non-profit organization also can help you recycle and re-purpose what is in your home right now.

Al crew will come into your home, free of charge, and tear out your kitchen, for example, for others to use in their remodel projects. What's more, your donation will be tax deductible.

Salvaged and gently used building materials are sold for 50 to 80 percent below retail prices.

Stardust operates three home-improvement thrift stores.

Proceeds generated from those stores help support the organization's mission and community programs that provide essential materials including housewares, toiletries, and building supplies to local non-profit organizations serving families and individuals in need.  

The Stardust stores in Glendale, Mesa and Phoenix are open Monday-Saturday, 8 a.m.-6 p.m., and Sunday, 10 a.m.-4 p.m.
