Buy Unique Furniture

Buy Unique Furniture

There are lots of ways to buy unique furniture but one of the best and most effective options is upcycled pieces.

Upcycled furniture can be as unique as you can possibly get, and, each piece with its own history and story. Every piece of upcycled furniture carries with it, a personal touch and the blood, sweat and tears of its creator.

You are buying art each and every time it really means something, not to mention the environmental benefits.

Vintup – A Free to use Marketplace
Let’s take a look at Vintup as it is a free marketplace dedicated to vintage and upcycled furniture.

On this furniture selling website you can find an abundance of unique furniture to buy. There are hundreds of furniture painting experts from all across the UK that list their work and the great bit about this is that many of them will deliver the goods to your door, meaning you don’t have to do anything other than to pick what you like, no shopping queues or hassle!

Here is a few examples of what you might see on the Vintup selling site. At the top of the page, you’ll see the latest “feature listings” which are all the sellers who have upgraded their accounts to pro-seller status. If you scroll down further you can see all the latest listings from every seller

You can also search the Vintup marketplace by using keywords and your Postcode but first, let us look at how what displays when you click on a furniture listing.

The first thing you’ll see on a “pro-seller” listing is more images, you can click on images to see them in more detail and it will run a slideshow too. When you scroll a little further down on the page, you’ll get some bullet points about this piece for sale such as main colour, what room it might be intended to use in and whether it is collection only, local or national delivery.

Item Description

The next information that you will see on the page is the description, this particular piece states the following:

***PLEASE MESSAGE ME WITH YOUR POSTCODE FOR AN ACCURATE QUOTE***

As a rough guide delivery is around £65 depending on where you live.

Upcycled vintage Stag chest of drawers with peacock feather fabric decoupage. The drawers are solid and the drawer boxes have dovetail joints. The top drawers have the original Stag drawer knobs and new gold-coloured drawer pulls have been added to the bottom two.

The unit has been sanded, ultra grip applied and painted with Fusion Mineral paint Midnight blue

The front of the drawers have been decoupaged with the image and has several coats of varnish applied for protection.

The drawers have been finished to a very high standard but please don’t expect a factory finish. There may also be a few marks here and there due to its previous life but these are really not that noticeable.

This is a real statement piece of furniture.

Height 72cm

Width 107cm

Depth 48cm

Please contact me if you require any further information or photographs.

Collection from Newquay or I do have a couple of couriers I use.

**Please message me with your postcode for an accurate quote. As a rough guide delivery is around £65 depending on where you live.**

As with most couriers, the company I use covers different parts of the country on set days as part of well-established routes, and while they will try to accommodate any time/day restrictions, a degree of flexibility on the customer’s part is necessary.

The courier is one man so would require help to unload larger items. He aims to deliver within 21 days but is usually much quicker. Please advise of any parking restrictions, awkward spots or stairs.

He will contact you directly to arrange delivery but please take into account any delays due to traffic, weather etc which are beyond his control.

Please check and make sure it will fit through all access points: regrettably we will have to charge a re-delivery fee if the courier has to return it to us, and when you are refunded, this will also be minus the original delivery cost.

You will be asked to inspect your goods and sign a ‘Proof of Delivery’ note. We cannot accept responsibility for any damage reported to us after you’ve signed it, so please do check your item.

Thank you.

An excellent description by the seller with lots of important points covered, you can also see a map with the item location and an option to get directions from your location which is really useful.
