Welcome to The Bower

The Bower Reuse & Repair Centre is an environmental charity and cooperative committed to reducing waste going to landfill. Our shopfronts in Marrickville and Parramatta sell 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.
