Finding Second Hand Furniture in Düsseldorf

By on July 28th, 2016

How many of you are here on a short-term work project? This post may resonate well with everyone who has a hard time finding affordable furniture to fill an apartment short-term, or anyone like me who just loves a good bargain.

Unlike some cities, Düsseldorf has some of the nicest, high-class second-hand furniture around. Don’t get me wrong, you can also find some super cheap worn-down Ikea furniture if you’re going that route too, but the mix is there.



As a flea market fanatic, I have to tell you that it’s worth renting a van for a day and shopping around the flea markets on the weekend if you’re interested in filling that apartment quite quickly.

 

We wrote up a post about 7 of the amazing flea markets around Düsseldorf that you’ll have to check out as well.

 

However, there were a few people asking questions similar to this one:

second hand furniture in dusseldorf

Which lead me to realize, that’s a very valid question! Here are 7 different ways you can find second hand furniture in Dusseldorf.

 

Caritas Kaufhaus Wertvoll

Location: Völkinger Str. 24-36, 40221, Düsseldorf
Store Hours: Monday to Friday from 8:30am – 4:00pm

I’m not going to lie, almost my entire apartment is furnished from Caritas Kaufhaus. There are so many people who are going to read this post and tell me that Caritas are only for those living on welfare, and I’m here to tell you that’s not true.

I am an average citizen, paying an average rent with an average income and no one stopped me from shopping there.

The staff there are super friendly and on a side note, it’s been one of the funniest places to learn some of my German.

You’ll find beds for less than 100 Euro and cupboards for 50 Euro, really anything. It’s a game at Caritas though. People aren’t stupid, when a new shipment comes in, things are quick to leave the store.

 

Troc

Location: Wilhelm-Kreis-Straße 2, 40595, Düsseldorf  

Store Hours: Monday to Friday  from 12:00pm – 7:00pm, Saturday from 10:00am – 4:00pm

At Troc, things are a little more inventory managed. You can find things online or you can head to the store. At the moment, they have more than 1,300 items posted on their online shop for you to browse through. The shop itself is huge, so you can definitely make a one-stop-shop if you need to.

Tip: You can also request an estimate on items from your own home if you’re heading on your way out of Dusseldorf.

 

Cash und Raus

Location: Herzogstraße 28, 40217, Düsseldorf

Store Hours: Monday to Friday from 10:00am – 7:00pm, Saturday from 10:00am – 4:00pm

Cash & Raus offers unemployed people the jobs and training to reintegrate into the community. Similar to Caritas, Cash und Raus picks up furniture donations from people’s homes around the city, brings them back to their warehouse and sells it at a discounted price.

 

Oxfam

Location: Friedrichstraße 25, 40217, Düsseldorf & Nordstraße 9, 40477, Düsseldorf

Store Hours: Monday to Friday from 10:00am – 7:00pm, Saturday from 10:00am – 3:00pm

From time to time Oxfam will have small furniture items for around the home. While they’re not a big second hand furniture store, they deserve to be mentioned too. I ended up picking up all my dishes and placemats from Oxfam at a super cheap price. So, if you’re looking for those final touches in your home, Oxfam is a great place to start.

 

eBay Kleinanzeigen

Location: www.ebay-kleinanzeigen.de

If you haven’t heard of eBay Kleinanzeigen yet, today is your lucky day. eBay Kleinanzeigen is like the Kijiji.com of North America. It’s the little sister of eBay and a great place to sell used items for cheap. You’ll need to arrange for your own transportation and pickup, but if you don’t have the time to shop around on your own, taking a look online is one of the easiest ways to pick out all your furniture for your apartment.

eBay Kleinanzeigen offers just about everything. From cars and bikes, furniture and clothing to finding your next rental apartment or buying your next house, they have it all.

 

Shpock

Location:www.shpock.com

Shpock has been all over the commercials for the past year, so I’d be surprised if you haven’t heard anything about Shpock yet. It’s the flea market app for your phone. It’s an easy way to find things that you love, save them, message the seller and pick it up. While Shpock is more popular for clothing, jewellry and games, there are quite a few pieces of furniture on there as well.

 

Kalaydo

Location: www.kalaydo.de

Kalaydo is similar to eBay Kleinanzeigen, it is an online shop where you can find everything and anything at a cheap price. You can find a job, buy your first house, furnish your apartment and then rent a car all on Kalaydo.

 

Facebook

If you haven’t already tried out Facebook, I’d be surprised. This is one of the first places other expats and people around the city sell their furniture. They know there’s newcomers to the city who will be looking for an apartment and second hand furniture and they also know that we’re all quite active on social media.

Check out some of these local Facebook groups where you’ll find second hand furniture:

    Hi Jenna,

    First of all thank you very much for your blog/website. It’s really amazing. 🙂

    I want to sell my second-hand furniture quickly, so can you please give me some tips where I can sell it? I cannot take it to a flea market that’s why need some agency/shop which can buy this. Price is not an issue here, I just want to sell it.

      There are a number of places you can sell your items quickly online. The best place would be Facebook. You can check out the Flea Market Facebook group in Düsseldorf, things sell relatively quickly there: https://www.facebook.com/groups/DusseldorfFleaMarket/
