So I called this morning to ask what happened. I was told they "didn't find anything that [they] could accept to sell in the store." Now, I'm the daughter of a woman who loves restored furniture and doing it herself - so I KNOW what kind of things find their way to the re-store. I know that our (high-quality) donations would easily have sold, even though they may have needed a little restoring. Is that not what most of the materials there need? Our sofa could have been reupholstered (I mean, it is a few years old, but we used it until a week ago) but was still structurally fine... the only reason we didn't keep it was because we decided we needed leather with the canines and we couldn't exactly justify reupholstering it with leather. The chairs could have had new fabric on the seats and been very cute. I would've kept them for myself if I didn't already have too much furniture in storage.
Dear Habitat for Humanity Re-Store in Augusta, GA,
You have hurt my feelings. I hope Goodwill appreciates our donations more, both now and in the future.

It's sad to me that when trying to do a good thing and help an organization such as this that you can be turned away.
