Treasure Hunting in Bydgoszcz

Treasure Hunting in Bydgoszcz

When moving into a new house means that you need new furniture to fit into the new shape and sizes of rooms.  I need some more storage in this house as I was spoiled in my last two houses as they had some built-in.  I love antique and second-hand furniture as most of our house is.  So I headed out one day with a friend to check out some 2 hand furniture stores to see what I could find!

Just a few fixer uppers.

This was at another store.  One of my uncles had one of these growing up.  I used to love playing with the dripping oil on the lines going down.  This one had a few busted cords or I would have been all over this.

I fell in love with this but no idea where I would put it.

Then this was my final purchase for the day, an old bread bowl. Saw open in a Pier 1 catalog for $150!!  I paid a whole $10.  Not what to do with it.

I was talking to a friend the other night about my treasures and she told me of 2 other stores here in town.  Oh, I am in trouble now!

Are you treasure seeker?  Me, I love trench art and living in Europe, I am in the perfect place to find it.

love kelley

    Can you please tell me where i could find second hands shops that sell furnitures in Bydgoszcz? I really like the idea of refurbished furnitures! :)

    • Hanna,

      I wish I knew the street addresses, just I just drive to them. I next time I go to them I will write the addresses down. One is across the street from the Opera Nova, another one is across the canal from Park Hotel, another one is on Gdanska on the right hand side going north sorta by Orange. The other ones are cleverly hidden in town.
