Hi! James and Stuart here, we're the founders of someware, and we are just so glad to meet you. We founded our company with a passion to help people and the planet, while making life so much easier for everyone.
At someware, our mission is to supercharge the second-hand, circular economy by diverting as much great furniture and housewares as possible from landfill. Furnishing your home with us not only saves the planet, it saves you a ton of money when compared to buying all new furniture.
With one visit to our warehouse, you could furnish an entire apartment or home, and have us hold onto it until you're ready to move in. Our inventory comes in so fast that sometimes it takes weeks for an item to show up on this website, and there is so much more treasure to be found in person. So please, come say hi and have your mind blown at how amazing your new home look.
So, where does it all come from?
Over 75% of our inventory is perfectly good (or really great!) furniture and housewares that were destined for landfill because the owners felt they had no other option, on a tight timeline. This happens every single day, and sadly, sometimes we don't have room to take it all in.
Did you know that in North America Alone, over 20 Billion Pounds of furniture goes to landfill every year? We've already rescued over 100,000 pounds and we have a goal of saving 1 Million Pounds in the next year. We can't reach that goal without your help; every purchase you make gives us the funds and floor space to go save more great stuff.
Unlike items you can find on the curb, we clear out homes and offices by the truckload, after putting it through our screening process to make sure we have the best chance at finding a new home for everything we collect.
We screen all of our potential sources for bugs, smoke, water damage, etc... and offer you additional sanitization or commercial steam cleaning for extra peace of mind (for an additional fee). You don't get this kind of assurance when you buy something on a peer-to-peer marketplace like Kijiji or Facebook Marketplace.
THANK YOU for supporting small business, the planet, and being an awesome human being.
