Charity Warehouses – These are dotted all across the country, think charity shops but for furniture. We did a weeks worth of work experience as a temp manager at one and we saw all sorts of decent items come in and go out fairly cheap!
See a skip? Find something that you might be able to use in a different way [ask permission]. The possibilities are endless. Just call yourself an aspiring interior designer and your mates will stop calling you a pikey!
What about Upcycling?
Getting something for free or on the cheap might sound like an awful idea to you but what if you give the items a lick of paint. You can turn even the most 80s piece of furniture into something you would spend £100’s for in a posh London shop!
