We refurbish donated furniture and offer it for sale at affordable prices, to help individuals with limited incomes.
Located on Peckers Hill Road in Sutton, our store features an on-site workshop where dedicated volunteers engage in repairing, restoring, and creatively transforming donated furniture. This encompasses a wide range of items, including dining tables, chairs, bookcases, drawers, desks, wardrobes, and cupboards.
Any excess wood or materials are repurposed to craft new items such as garden planters, benches, and ornaments. All products are available for purchase in the shop, and any proceeds generated are reinvested into the endeavour. The shop operates from 10:00 am to 3:30 pm on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday.
Our volunteers acquire skills to rejuvenate outdated furniture into fashionable and remarkable pieces, boosting their skill set and enhancing their confidence for potential employment opportunities.
We bring people's creative visions to life! If you can't find what you're looking for in our store, feel free to discuss the possibility of crafting a customised piece with us.
