    Where to buy secondhand furniture

    Hello, I've hit the search button and could not find the answer on my question. "Where can I buy secondhand furniture?"

    I'm a student living in Thailand with a student budget, and search then for cheap furniture.

    Mainly a salon table, TV and sofa.

    almost impossible to find here. Look at a place like Index for the cheaper tables and sofas.

    If you're in the 'cock try out MBK. Baht and Sold is a good site for second hand stuff. I would say that 10,000bt should see you well decked out for a studio apartment. Either that or try renting a furnished apartment for your first step until you get some dosh behind you.

    About 2 km after the Sri Nakarin junction on Ramkhamhaeng road (about 500m before Carrefour) there is a 2nd hand furniture place on the left hand side. There is a statue of a cockrel outside it, if I remember correctly. Lots of their stuff is office furniture, though.

    Most Thais are big believers in ghosts so buying things 2nd hand scares them. That's the main reason you don't see more shops.

    That was the beauty of living in japan as you could cruise around Tokyo and pick some great furniture up off the street for free when the owners have decided to chuck it out to replace with new. You can pick up carpets/sofas/tvs/fridges the lot for free

    Thats funny. I would think that would apply to houses, but a haunted coffee table? Come on man.

    Try taking your GF or wife to a second hand store and tell her you're going to buy a used wardrobe, see how well it goes over.
