Local strategies for a better world

Finding stuff


Furniture and Housewares – pre-owned

The Stratford area has many good antiques stores. There are several in the downtown area, and you can also try an antiquing trip to Shakespeare. Refinished furniture is a grey area, but you can always ask them to use organic refinishes.

We have a very clean and well-run Goodwill store, just opposite the Festival Mall on Ontario Street.

The Stratford Restore isn’t just for building materials. They have furniture, and sometimes even sofas and chairs. OK, maybe not the fanciest, but clean and solid. You can also find tools, lighting, and garden equipment. At 245 Griffith Rd. You can call them at (519) 273-7155.

Shackleton’s Auction House is just on the edge of town, at 3715 Embro Road. You can often find good used furniture at reasonable prices; look through their listing of past auctions to get an idea of pricing and availability.  You can sign up for their e-mail notification list, and you can bid online.
