The Best Vintage and Second Hand Furniture Stores in Toronto

One of the main reasons we love our homes is the furniture. It enhances our rooms, makes our lives much more comfortable, and brings life into our houses. However, buying new furniture is a large investment and sometimes there's not enough money to spend on new furniture. Luckily, there's a lot of great second-hand furniture stores in Toronto so you don't have to save up for new furniture but build a comfortable and convenient interior space with second-hand, vintage or reused furniture instead. However, finding a decent second-hand furniture store might be a daunting task. This guide should make finding a good vintage and second-hand furniture store in Toronto and the GTA a bit easier!

  • Guff

  • Jacaranda Tree & Co.

    Jacaranda Tree & Co.

    Jacaranda Tree & Co. is based more on a mood than on particular product lines. They do sell furniture, and they sell antiques, but most of the place is elegantly arranged with carefully chosen odds and ends that fall into neither category.

  • Mrs. Huizenga

  • 1698 Queen Antiques

    1698 Queen Antiques

    A blowtorch made out of brass can share store space with a coffee table made from a eighteenth-century grain threshing board, along with a rotary knife sharpener.

    Open: Mon-Sat: 10:30AM-5:30PM, Sun: 11AM-5PM

  • Chatelet

    Chatelet

    Address: 604 Queen Street West, Toronto
    Open: Mon-Sat: 12PM-6PM, Sun: 12PM-5PM

  1. An impressive share! I’ve just forwarded this onto a friend who had been doing a little research on this.
    And he in fact bought me lunch because I discovered it for him…
    lol. So let me reword this…. Thank YOU for the meal!!

    But yeah, thanks for spending some time to discuss this subject
    here on your internet site.

  2. Hi

    I am moving to canada on 21st April to brampton as a new immigrant. I would like to have the approximate price of all household furnitures to decide whether i should ship my furniture or to buy seconds from their.

    1. Hi Tom,

      sorry, I cannot tell you the exact prices since it really depends on many factors. You can read our article about high-end and budget furniture to get an idea of prices :) link to juliekinnear.com

      But if I were you I would only ship my most valuable furniture :)

      Best of luck and welcome to Canada!

      guiding you home™
      Julie

  3. Thanks so much for the article. I’m looking forward to checking out some of the stores you have recommended. I would however like to let you know that Frontier Sales closed it’s doors in summer 2016. They were a fabulous store. About 1/2 of the furniture in our home came from there. Just you can update your readers.

    1. Hi Amal,

      I’m sorry, but we don’t buy or sell furniture. We’re real estate agents.

      You could try contacting some of the stores on the list, maybe they will be able to help you.

      Kind regards,
      Julie

  5. Has anyone checked out Elle and Eve. They are a unique consignment store that carries furniture, decor and collectables. Really unique pieces at affordable prices.

  6. Hi Julie – We are moving into a smaller house and have 3 or 4 items that are quite high end and in great condition. Would you recommend any stores for these not run of the mill items. Thanks

  7. Buying secondhand used to be a hassle and more like a scavanger hunt to find the right pieces. Now, secondhand furniture websites and online groups are making the search process simpler than ever.

  15. Hello Hilda
    I just wanted to bring to your attention another retailer of good quality second hand furniture, antiques and gently used decor and other household items called Transition Squad. We work with seniors and their families going through a downsize or transition. As part of the services we offer includes the sale of their household goods at estate sales, online and through our Consignment Warehouse. Take a look and let me know if I can get you additional information.

    Thank you

  16. hi..i have some furniture.I am looking for sombody ,who buys second hand furniture..they are in good condition..i do not know how to find ..

  17. I’m afraid your list isn’t complete without Around The Block, 150 Lesmill Rd. (Leslie/401) Around The Block is only high quality consignment home furnishings and prices you can’t pass up…and if you do pass an item up, it will be gone when you change your mind! Around The Block is a huge showroom that beautifully displays everything. The showroom is impeccably clean and airy and joy to shop in.

  18. Hi Julie,
    I think this site and blog is an excellent listing/resource. May I suggest you also check out the Yesterday’s Finds store at 686 Broadview. Excellent and constantly changing selection of quality new & used furniture and appliances. Alot of their stuff comes from furniture rental agencies, which cater to the real estate and film industries. Plus, they are part of Oasis, a non-profit organization, helping people in recovery to become productive and employment-ready again.

  19. I want to sell a few furnitures like sofas, box spring and mattress, dining table and corner tables, TV stand. Please contact urgently @905-738-9258

  20. Hi Julie,

    Wow, I just thought you were a top agent for Royal LePage, then I go to look for used furniture for props and there you are as a UF Guru! Thanks for the great suggestions…a shopping I will go! Hope to see you in K.

  21. Julie,

    Thanks so much for mentioning Furnishlyst in your piece on second-hand furniture in Toranto. Listings are updated throughout the day; all listings created through Furnishly.com are automatically included.

    Have a great day!
