Like a lot of older people. My mum doesn’t really use the Internet for much. She had just about mastered the art of e-mailing, and will occasionally fire up the Google if she wants to look up the weather or some trending news topic.
We were both quite surprised by a very pleasant fashion to find that most online stores offer a huge selection plus beds with 24hr delivery at absolutely no extra cost. We found a good quality bed base can be used with any type of mattress for under £300, which is much cheaper than we would have sourced it locally.
On a recent visit to her house she was telling me she wanted to buy a new bed because hers was more than 10 years old and beginning to show its age. She has suffered from a bad back for several years now and when it recently got worse, her doctor suggested she look at memory foam mattresses which give you much firmer support than traditional pocket sprung mattresses.
Shopping for valuable furniture on the Internet
My sister love antiques and for many yearsif she has a free day you will find her wandering around the local second-hand and antique stores in our area. On Sundays she can be found traipsing round car boot sales come rain, wind, or snow, looking for the ultimate antique bargain.
Needless to say, when she got her first computer, eBay quickly became her favourite website, and she would spend hours scouring the listings for a valuable item that may have been marked down what was going for a song. Unfortunately, she was not alone, and competition for valuable antiques online is quite fierce with many collectors going after the same items.
However, recently, she may have a major new discovery, and her latest craze is buying furniture with restoration options. She took a course last summer in a restoration workshop and now have become quite skilled at restoring antiques and antique reproduction furniture.
Antiques in need of restoration can be found for much cheaper on many websites and also in local stores – and there is not so much competition for them, in fact, my sister made the winning bid on a beautiful reproduction bureau style desk this morning that needs minimal restoration and she should be able to really sell it at a profit of several hundred pounds.
