When I had my first flat furniture review, I wanted to get rid of a chest of drawers, some parker knoll chairs and a bedstead, all inherited from 78 Links Drive days. After much ringing around of charity shops I chanced upon the Oasis shop in Battersea, who will collect furniture from you and sell it to raise money for the charity. They couldn’t take the chairs because they were up holstered and pre-dated the era of flame reisitant certification, and they didn’t take beds, so they both ended up being collected by the council (although I think someone picked up the bedframe beforehand…. ), but the chest of drawers were warmly welcomed and collected as arranged.
Anyway, with a new desk and shelves due for delivery on 27 May, I’m going to need to recycle my current desk, and a few other items too. And Oasis look like they’re going to come up trumps again – I’ll be ringing them on 020 7924 7514 to arrange collection by their driver when he’s back from holidays on 9th June.
