I'm trying to find some decent second hand furniture shops in the Newcaslte/Gateshead area. Looked at a few but they are all full of tat. In other areas of the country (Bolton, Bridgwater) I've always managed to get some really nice solid wood furniture at bargain prices but oop north it just doesn't seem to exist. Any tips on where to go? Being a frugal bunch I'm hoping you can give me local knowledge otherwise it's off to Ikea.

There's a couple of really good charity shops in Stockton-on-tees (a little far, I know) that specialise in furniture - you can get some really good bargains in there, as long as you aren't looking for trendy.

Nothing sedates rationality like large doses of effortless money. After a heady experience of that kind, normally sensible behaviour drift into behaviour akin to that of Cinderella at the ball. They know that overstaying the festivities...will eventually bring on pumpkins and mice. But they nevertheless hate to miss a single minute of what is a helluva party. Therefore, the giddy participants all plan to leave just seconds before midnight. There's a problem, though: They are dancing in a room in which the clocks have no hands."

How about skipping the furniture shops and buying at an auction instead? That's where a lot of those second hand shops source their furniture. Try Millers - www.millersauctioneers.co.uk. They are in Byker, just north of the river. There's also Boldens. They are on the south side of the river, a few miles east of Gateshead. They alternate their auctions, so sometimes fine art/antiques and other times general household goods. They're not bad for furniture - they're worth a look, imho.

Just a suggestion, don't limit what you can have especially online services and purchases. You can visit a lot of store/retailers online who can provide you good quality furniture products as well as good deals and prices.
