British Red Cross
The British Red Cross operates specialist furniture shops across the country.
Its locations are:
- East Grinstead
- Leamington Spa
- Llantwit Major
However, furniture is also sold in all its charity shops across the country.
You can also pick up kitchenware such as plates, bowls, and cutlery, as well as electrical goods like TVs, lamps and games consoles. Not all British Red Cross shops deal with white goods, however.
Emmaus charity furniture shops
Think of charity shops and you usually think of a normal-looking unit on a high street. But in Bolton, the charity Emmaus has taken over a former military barracks and filled it with furniture.
Derby Barracks is the city’s largest charity shop, and offers furniture for every room of the house.
Emmaus is a charity supporting homeless people with work and accommodation. In 2017/18, it managed to save over 12,000 tonnes of goods from going to landfill.

Its charity shops sell the usual items, but some branches specialise in furniture – including its Abbeydale Furniture shop in London.
Sue Ryder also has an online shop selling a range of furniture – including garden furniture and marching bedroom sets.
Money raised in Sue Ryder shops goes towards its work supporting people living with a terminal illness or neurological condition, or who have been bereaved.
