The Secondhand Warehouse is the largest antique store in Leicester, UK, for antiques, vintage, used furniture, and household items. It stretches out over 12,000 square feet and this huge space is filled with furnishings of all shapes and sizes. This antique store is the perfect place to stop by for anyone undertaking a little house renovation as the inspiration is piled on from the moment you step through the door. The only difficulty is choosing a select few pieces to bring home with you!
The team behind the Secondhand Warehouse is a family with a lifelong interest in antiques and vintage goods. They have been in the business since the 80s and the knowledge they have accumulated over the years is, in some ways, more valuable than the goods they get ahold of. All of the staff that works at the Secondhand Warehouse are friendly, helpful, and happy to answer any questions, from either serious collectors on the hunt or those looking for a unique piece of furniture for their home.
Many of the brands on sale at the Secondhand Warehouse will be familiar to collectors and those in the know. Shoppers will find names such as GPlan, Ercol, Parker Knoll, Stag, Merrow, Corona, La Z Boy, and Silent Night. As well as the furniture, this store also sells electrical items, appliances, media and books, clothing, lighting, gardening tools, and more.
The inventory at the Secondhand Warehouse is always being changed and refreshed so that even the most regular customers will always have something new to see. The owners always have an eye out for quality items to add to the store and their years of experience shows nowhere more so than in the curation of new pieces for sale. To help with the supply of new stock, the Secondhand Warehouse also offers a house clearance service to Leicestershire and the surrounding counties. In the course of this service, they aim to recycle and reuse as much as possible and always have a few ideas as to how pieces may be upcycled too.
