Welcome to online furniture auction awesomeness!
Buying furniture online can be a complete chore, in fact when you move into a new flat or new house it can be a chore wherever you buy your furniture from. Having done this a few times we got thinking about the whole process of buying furniture. It seems to us a lot of un-nessesary transport is involved in the furniture market – lots of cheap furniture is made – and thats not a great thing. Cheap quality furniture can be bad for your skin (recent outbreaks in chemicals found in uk furniture) for your lungs and can actually decrease from your environment rather than adding to it. As well as this creating a lot of new furniture and dumping old stuff is hugely bad for the environment.
With this in mind we are all about the second hand and used furniture market. If you can find an excellent dining room table locally, for less money then why buy a new one made cheap from china? Whats more it’ll be easier to collect as its a local seller that is trying to sell, cheaper and better for the environment – and it helps communities to actually talk to each other.
So yes – buy furniture locally, second hand and do your bit – also get a damn bargain and a nice new table, bed or cupboard!!!
