second hand furniture, clothes, bric a brac in bulgaria?

Post Posted: Mon Mar 23, 2009 10:08 am

we're moving to bulgaria in a few weeks. we've spent a bit of time in bulgaria previously and have never really noticed much evidence of shops/markets where you can buy second hand furniture/clothes etc. we've seen a few antiques shops in sofia but that's it.
have we just been looking in the wrong places?
i don't like modern flat pack ikea stuff and much prefer the kind of solid wooden old-fashioned furniture that young bulgarians would probably detest. but where do you find this furniture?
we also never noticed anything like charity shops...
so where would a person find bulgarian chintz + bric a brac?
i know there are quite a few expats setting up car boot sales. which is great. but i think most of these are on the coast?
(we'll be moving pretty close to sofia)
cheers.

Hi!
There are 3 second hand shops here in Pazardzhik that do furniture, mostly imported from Holland. Vast variety of furniture from large wooden cabinets to leather sofas. There are also second hand shops that sell clothing Very Happy Plenty around, just one hour from Sofia!

I think the prices are reasonable as the furniture shops seem to be very busy! It depends on what you want and what you want to pay really. The clothes are cheap cheap cheap Laughing
