    Can anyone recommend anywhere to get good 2nd hand furniture. I'm in New Cross and currently without transport.... so the closer the better really! I'm looking for a computer desk and chair and maybe a chest of drawers or a bookcase too.

    it might be a bit too 'office-y' but Andrew Office furniture do some fairly decent and cheap desks, chairs and the like. They dont have any stores in SE but will deliver for an extra tenner i think

    I haven't seen any computer desk there, but otherwise, the British Heart Foundation charity shop on the Old Kent Road (near East St) is a start for second hand goods.

    Definatly the BHF charity shop - they have loads of tat - but real gems as well - kitted my whole house out with stuff from there. Prices are usually good - but they started putting some up to silly levels

    There's also that gaff by Sainsbury's in New Cross - furniture on the pavement. Looks pretty poor but it's local.

    Not so good, IMO, and they seem reluctant to haggle :confused:

    There is the classic "TAC Office Equipment: Equips Business for Efficiency" on New Cross Road :D

    Also lots of furniture to be found out on the streets.

    It looks a pretty ropey place - crustychick, it's on new cross road where the entrance to sainsbury's is. Quite possibly not worth it.

    Fwiw, I never had a desk. I used to have a big bit of wood that i'd put on my lap instead. OK for writing, I found.

    Where exactly we can have this? Maybe you can show to us. Please... Thanks.
    If everyone also wants furniture safety tips and information like How to prevent furniture-related injuries, maybe I can help you.

    Also Freecycle, where the stuff you describe is quite plentiful and free but you'll need to factor in the cost of a minicab estate car to move it.

    opposite the Man of Kent pub, there is a SH furntiure shop. seems to supply the groovy student market. Always has a pile of piss stained matresses lying on the pavement around the corner. maybe worth a browse & a strong haggle if anything tales your fancy

    Oh ,yes , down from Honour oak station , towards crofton park, there is s SH office shite seller. I got a Sweeny Era filing cabinet, in battleship grey with sharp corners for £10.

    Emmaus shop in Lee High Road might be worth a look, although not all that close to New Cross. Don't know whether you'd get away with a desk as luggage on the 321...
