2nd hand furniture for sale

Fresh Start is trying a little experiment. We’ve been taking loads and loads and LOADS of furniture to charities. Sometimes they accept it and sometimes they turn away things that are PERFECTLY good because they don’t have room. As we’re a business, and we need to be thinking about costs, we can’t go charity to charity to charity all day in an effort to avoid landfill at all costs. We wouldn’t have time for new clients because the first one of the day would take up the whole entire day as we looked for the SINGLE charity out there that happened to have space. Our plan has always been to take your unwanted items to charity, let them have first dibs, and then take the remainders for recycling or disposal and help out the next customer.

Well, lately, I’m not sure what’s going on out there but it’s getting harder and harder to get high quality, 2nd hand furniture donated. To that end, we’ve rented a storage locker in North Vancouver where we plan on taking some of the choicer items that we’re having trouble donating.

To see what we have on offer at anytime go to: http://vancouver.en.craigslist.ca/ and in the “search” bar, put in “keyword: fsr” or just “fsr” but you’ll get extra stuff that doesn’t have anything to do with us.

What does everyone think of this? I think it’s got a real chance to keep more furniture out of the landfill, so I’m hopeful to see it work.
