Welcome to The Bower

 The Bower Reuse & Repair Centre is the place where second-hand comes first. We’re an environmental charity and cooperative committed to stopping usable items from going to landfill. Our shopfronts in Marrickville and Parramatta sell second-hand furniture, appliances, household goods, salvaged building materials, bikes, books and more. It’s a treasure trove of delights with new items arriving daily. You never know what you’ll find – all at incredibly low prices.

We offer a collection servicefree for 21 participating council areas across Sydney – for household furniture and items that are in good usable condition. The Bower truck can also deliver your purchases too.

You can learn a new skill with The Bower’s Tricks of the Trade workshops – in basic carpentry, furniture repair and restoration, furniture painting or introductory upholstery. During school holidays we offer kids’ recycled art and mosaic workshops.

Need something repaired? Visit The Bower’s Repair Cafe for free assistance with dodgy electrical items, wobbly bikes and rickety timber furniture. The Repair Cafe operates on Wednesdays, 1pm – 4pm at Marrickville and on the last Saturday of the month, 10am – 12pm at Parramatta.
