    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.

    second hand shop

    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.:icon_redface:

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

    Second hand furniture

    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!!!

    second hand furniture

    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. :icon_biggrin:

    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.

    Hello Zoyra,i am not sure what kind of things you are looking for,but in Mas there is an interesting shop for second hand furniture.They repair old things ,mostly from wood.If you drive to Mas from Blabatuh,turn left at the Baby-Buddha T-junction.It is just one or two shops from the corner on the lefthand side.
    I do not know what they have at this moment,but in the past i found some interesting things there.

    second hand shop

    Thanks Hermit, I'll have a look soon. Not really looking for anything in particular, but I just love to browse through vintage/second hand shops/flea market/auction - and was just checking if something like this does exist in Bali.

    Second hand furniture disposal and consignment auction warehouses are becoming very popular all over the world these days. Given fthe large number of expats living in Bali, and the transitory nature of many of them (meaning lots of expats buying household goods then having to get rid of them a few months/years later), you would think that there would be quite a good market for this type of shop/service here. Or does Bali just attract a different sort of expat, who are maybe less concerned about waste, recycling and sustainable solutions and more interested in just taking advantage of the relative cheapness of new products on offer here that they maybe could not afford to buy new back in their own countries? Do you think there could still be a market for this type of service/shop in Bali?

    Hello

    I see that most posts in this thread are from 2010.

    I am moving in to a house and I am looking for affordable 2nd hand furniture like a bed (not necessarily a matrass), sofa, dining table + chairs, some cupboards / cabinets.

    Does anybody know where I would be able to find this?

    I have bought some stuff before from friends here and got some good deals. Often though what I have seen for sale in Bali Advertiser, Facebook and even on this site, people value their 2nd goods a little high. Electrical goods/computers etc, the price tends to go down for new products as new models become available, so it often works out cheaper to buy new than 2nd hand. The battery life for laptops/tablets only gets worse and worse, so again I think it is a good reason to buy new.

    Maybe. There are some shops doing this, but I don't think it would be easy - low margins and having to store all of that stock somewhere.
