how to find a deal on ex-display furniture

hey babes, happy tuesday! I hope your week is off to a good one.
today we a lucky enough to hear from our guest blogger- John Maguire [from boconcept]. 
today he is telling us how to find ex-display furniture, for a bargain! 

Most people these days have to watch the pennies but still want to be able to give their home a little makeover. One way to achieve this goal is to source ex-display furniture. But the question is how to find bargain ex-display furniture because you don't often see it advertised.

1/ check out the internet

Since the advent of the Internet people can find things they want or need that much easier. Luckily this is also relevant to sourcing ex-display furniture. Specialist sites cater to any furniture, as well as objects that have been used for display purposes. However, expect to pay slightly more for the furniture than if you sourced it directly from the shops.

2/ talk to your local furniture shops

If you approach the owners or managers of your local furniture shop, they are usually willing to listen to any propositions you may have about the furniture they use for display. Obviously you may not be the only person to approach them, which means you might be out of luck if someone else got there first. If you don't let the owners know you’re interested, you will never know if you can buy what you're interested in or if it has already be spoken for.

3/ furniture shops hold ex-display sales

Many high street retailers regularly hold ex-display furniture sales. Remember, as the seasons change, new furniture arrives in-store. The furniture previously used for display purposes is then put on sale at discounted prices. The most important thing to know is when these sales are happening. Emailing the company or speaking to a member of staff will allow you to find out the dates of these sales. 

4/ big names in furniture have massive online clearance sales

It is always worth checking the Internet, magazines and newspapers to see if any of the big name stores are planning to hold any of their massive clearance sales. This includes big names like Ikea or The Furniture Village. However, with this said the bigger names in furniture have also realized how valuable online sales can be for their bottom line. As such, many have gone down the route of selling ex-display furniture in special online sales. As long as you don't mind a scratch or two you can save a lot buying your furniture in this way.

If you are looking for a bargain, then you have to keep your ears and eyes open to when online furniture suppliers and high street retailers get new stock in. Once you know this, it’s more than likely a sale will be in the near future. Any furniture that's been used for display purposes will be included in the sale with massive savings on the original asking prices.
