    Default second hand furniture/appliances shop

    Hi all,

    Does anybody know if there is a second hand furniture/appliances shop in Bali? I do know about Bali Ad, but is there a warehouse style of shop somewhere? Or even an auction style shop? Thanks.

    You could try the Ex-Hotel shops. They are all located in Kerobokan. One in jalan Raya Semer near Banjar Anyar (going towards Canggu), one in jalan Marlboro before it becomes jalan Teuku Umar and one in jalan Gatut Subroto on the left side before you get to Denpasar. Mostly second-hand furniture and lamps but they do have some appliances.
    Madness takes its toll. Please have exact change.

    Thanks, Mat - I'll have a look there. By any chance, do you know the names of the shops? Thanks again.

    Can't remember the name but the signs say "Ex-Hotel Furniture" or something similar to that.

    I found a telephone number for one of the Ex-Hotel shops in my phone directory, but I can't remember which shop.

    I suggest you call 0361 482057 and ask them where they're located.

    I went to the one in Denpasar, sorry to disappoint, but most items were ridiculously overpriced. An example -3 juta for a round metal table with four chairs, glass top, all pieces rusted and the glass chipped. There is a place on the by pass near sanur that makes metal furniture cheaper than that!!!
    I have just learnt that pleasing everyone is impossible. But, pissing them off is a piece of cake

    Thanks, Mat - appreciate your info very much.

    Scout, thanks for your input as well. Again, do you have the name of that furniture shop (not the second hand one) on by pass? And which part of by pass is it?

    It's been my experience from moving around a bit, not just in Bali, that you are better off buying electrical goods new from a discount store. Electrical goods tend to go down in price. Look at how much LCD and plasma tvs have come down in price.

    When you move however, you can usually sell these goods for a good price in expat newspapers, magazines. For some reason, people think they are getting a bargain buying second-hand goods, when they could get something better and sometimes cheaper by buying new.

    If you ask around friends if they have anything like furniture they don't need anymore, they are often happy to give it to you for free if you pick it up yourself.

    Second-hand shops tend to be expensive like others have said and unless you are looking for something unique or different, aren't worth it.
