Second hand furniture. What’s it worth?

Recommended Posts

Putting my office furniture up for sale on gumtree and Facebook probably. Want to get as much as possible for it to help pay for my new office but can’t decide what to try for, and I don’t want it to sit for weeks on end not selling. I’ve been caught out before by selling stuff too cheap and it being snapped up on an instant.

 

its a walnut veneer. I’d say it’s not as good a quality as it looks though. In superb condition all over. Paid £1000 for all 3 units if I recall. 
 

what do you reckon it’s worth second hand?

Looks very nice but you know what people are like, they like Chhhheeeeeeeeppppppp and wouldn't know quality if it hit them on the head from a great height!!

Prepare to be disappointed and any positive will be good. Probably eBay may be the best option and do it on a £1 total fee weekend.

You run Arbtalk and have an American veneer office set.
Chip it.
Put up a request for some nice BRITISH, locally sourced,locally milled exquisite hardwood.
And a joiner to put them together.
(Be a good thread for the wood working section?)
I'm sure you'd get a good price.

This is an 18th century sewing cabinet, made of elm I think, hand carved motifs on the front.

Built in 1700 and something, cost at auction £280 quid.

 

Second hand furniture costs buttons.

Already got a joiner starting next month, he's recreating this for me. Would be nice to get some nice oak sorted for the desk and side/roof panels but im probably just going to end up ordering something like this

It depends on what it is. Pine seems to go for a fair bit down here, a decent 2nd hand pine dining table and 4 chairs for £150 say but something double the size with 8 chairs in solid mahogany down here will go for £20!
