If I purchase a large item, can someone help me to take it to my vehicle?

For very large items (mainly furniture) Monday – Saturday we can move the item downstairs for you using our goods lift for you to collect from the Donation Centre entrance, at the back of the building.

Please note that we unfortunately cannot offer this service on a Sunday due to a reduced team, however, you are still welcome to take away the item yourself if you are able to manage this safely.

Can I reserve an item to collect at the later time?

Items can be paid for and collected within a week, but we are unable to reserve items without payment.

Do you offer a delivery service for large items?

Yes. Please speak to a member of staff for a quote, as the delivery charge will depend upon the milage required to reach the destination.

Does this shop sell any new items?

Yes, we sell chalk paint for use in upcycling and some gifting items such as cards and jewellery.

About our paint:
We sell ReColour Chalky Furniture Paint, perfect for all your upcycling projects. Made with leftover, waste paint which has been filtered, treated, and blended to create a range of stunning colours. No need to prep, just grab a paint brush and start painting!

ReColour’s paint remanufacturing process has been created in partnership with Dulux and New Life Paints, resulting in a quality and eco-friendly paint.

Can I donate to this shop?

Yes please! Whitestone is also home to our large Donation Centre. Our drop-off point is located at the rear of the building with dedicated parking spaces for unloading your items. Please note that we are unable to accept donations at the till within the shop itself.

If you have large quality items of furniture you would like to donate, we can help! Our collection service can discuss your items with you and collect them from your home. This can’t be organised from our Whitestone site though unfortunately, so please get in touch with the Collection Service Team directly in one of these ways:
