Ethical position

Ethical Purchasing

We think very carefully about what we buy and from whom.  We abhor the horrendous practices of using forced, bonded or economic slavery to produce "cheap" items.  We also wholeheartedly disapprove of the environmental damage wreaked by their production.  Therefore we do not stock or recommend some products that are available for sale in the reclaimed business.  We ask some tough questions of our suppliers and then ask them to prove them.

Where possible we like to be actively involved with the salvaging of our stock, this means we can protect and save as much as possible.  It also means that for the majority of our stock we are able to provide you the reassurance of knowing exactly where it comes from.   We are also proud to be a member of the Salvo Code of Practice which actively promotes good practices in the reclamation trade to discourage selling products that are stolen, and provides mechanisms to report to the police to prevent and catch thieves and return stolen items to their owners.
