Furniture Buying

Post by PrimroseHill » Mon, 29 Oct 2012 10:37 am

Anyone has any good suggestions as to where to buy some nice sofas and outdoor furniture.

Went to Dempsey and most of them are really expensive

Stuff is available at Expat Auctions. Auction once a week. You can subscribe to a newsletter which lets you see all the lots.

ps Anyone buying any furniture at Dempsey needs their head examining.
There is a very long thread about one of the retailers there (on another expat message board - sorry mods - they do exist !) which makes for interesting reading. Caveat Emptor !

Yeah, I've been a member of them all longer than I've been here. It's why we all end up here....... They don't call it the Angry Board over there for nothing.

On the weekend, check out the local newspaper. There are always sales going on, if you are looking for cheaper than dempsey furniture. Some of them are reasonably good quality while others are less.

You might want to consider renting a car and drive around, to check out the various shops.
