A leading online hardware retailer has this week suggested upcycling could be a financial boost for people looking to add some extra income in these cash strapped times. Ironmongery Online sell many items used by upcyclers to add finishing touches that can turn ‘trash into cash.’
Stourbridge, UK -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/19/2014 -- The market for upcycled furniture has grown quickly in the UK driven by many factors including financial and environmental. Online technology has also allowed people to easily find willing buyers for their projects. Whilst the market may seem flooded this week Ironmongery Online has suggested there is still room for growth – and is the ideal route for those looking to extra cash.
Vicky Tomline, Head of Sales and Marketing at the Black Country based retailer, said this week “Although there is a of recycled and upcycled furniture around there are still opportunities for people with some skill and imagination to create some effective pieces – and use popular sites like eBay or Gumtree to find a market. It is unlikely that it this will make any one a fortune as it is time consuming but it is a good way for people working from home to earn a little cash and 'every little helps' as they say".
Ironmongery Online was established in 2006. The website holds thousands of products available on next day delivery and new products are introduced daily. The company specialises in hinges, door furniture and general ironmongery but offers a one-stop shop for the general public and trade. It is proud of its extensive range of high quality products but equally as proud of its customer service.
Vicky continued “One of the reasons for the growth in the sector is that many items needed to add finishing touches are much easier to source. For example we sell a wide range of period-style door furniture, hinges and other hardware items that upcyclers find essential.”
