Worth a Second Look is open!

We are so excited to see you again!

As we re-open we continue to follow Public Health guidelines including wearing masks and distancing. We are so grateful for your understanding and patience as we work to keep everyone well!

Worth a Second Look Furniture & Housewares is a retail outlet whose goal is to provide the community with low-cost used furniture and assorted houseware items while keeping reusable goods out of landfills and creating opportunities for employment.

Donations can be dropped off only during open hours.

What We Hope To Achieve

Worth a Second Look will provide the community with a number of services designed to help individuals establish for themselves a place they can call home by:

  • offering a wide range of used furniture and houseware items at very low prices
  • providing pick-up and delivery services to increase access to used furniture and housewares
  • incorporating a fix-it facility to clean, test, repair, and refurbish usable goods
  • assembling packages consisting of beds, blankets, tables etc. for families and individuals looking to establish a home, but having few resources
  • creating opportunities for skill development and community involvement
  • decreasing the amount of furniture and housewares that end up in landfills
  • integrating with and utilizing Job Café labour
