More recycled furntiure- from ‘Trade Me’ and the local upolsterer- Mike

5 Jun

This couch was also bought from trade me for $50. Bought locally and with the help  Mike from kapiti Upolstory a new lease of like for the old couch. I am so pleased as it cost less than buying a new couch- and its NZ made, its well built- so better quality than I could afford newand I know it hasn’t been transportedfrom around the world- And I’ve helped a local business. he (in turn) helped me with my subsequent upolstory jobs- mentoring me to ensure that i’ve done things properly.

Chairs also bought from “Trade me” for about $25 or $30 each I think- also a local purchase and recovered by Mike. Idecided to go 2nd hand after looking in furniture stores & being dissappointed with the cost, quality and style and finding most in my price range were from China. It was a dilemma easily sortedwith a little lateral thinking.
