Established in 1977, Goods & Chattels supplies a comprehensive range of products for both Professional and Do-It-Yourself furniture restorers. Originally established as a shop in the antique precinct in the Woolloongabba area of Brisbane the business is well known throughout the Brisbane region and its reputation and customer base have now expanded to include both interstate and international customers.
The business can be run as a home-based store or a shop-based store and currently runs with minimum overheads as an on-line store and a retail shop from a home based environment. The fixtures and fittings that were used in the shop environment are still used and the business can quickly be adapted to again run in a shop environment.
The operating environment of the business includes a “walk-in” shop, phone, email and mail ordering as well as a completely secure internet on-line ordering system. From the beginning, word of mouth referrals have enhanced our reputation and our customers have been returning to Goods and Chattels since the 1970’s.
Our extensive product range includes a diverse selection of brass hardware and fittings for the restoration of unique and antique furniture. Some of the product ranges in the inventory are box fittings, brass bed parts, castors, hinges of all shapes and sizes, French polishing and restoration products, flocking, wooden inlays, oil lamp parts, pigments, powders, shellac, stains, table fittings, veneers and wood replacement parts including knobs, legs, and decorative corbels.
Goods & Chattels has been providing advice and supplies to the furniture restoration trade for more than 30 years and has developed a reputation for being able to source many unique and hard-to-get products. It has one of the most complete and comprehensive range of antique furniture restoration products in Australia.
