McIntire Plaza: Spotlight – Possessions Recycled

Posted on: Feb 08, 2012

“…we think that too many items get discarded when they could still be used and treasured by someone else. We rescue these items and find good homes for them. You never know what you will find – vintage furniture, antiques, collectibles, glassware, household & kitchen items, books, movies, toys & more!”…in a nut shell, that’s Possessions Recycled.

Located at 1713 Allied Street in the McIntire Plaza, Possessions Recycled is not your average furniture store.  They buy, sell and trade furniture and other household goods with a constant turnover in fresh inventory.  They provide the opportunity to purchase gently used and new quality items at significant savings.

As a consultant for a large order fulfillment corporation in the Washington, DC area, Bob Notto suffered from corporate burn-out.  In 2006, Bob and his former business partner starting going to estate and garage sales purchasing items of interest.  After a while, they decided to stop just buying and start selling.  So, they began marketing the items on-line.  In 2007, they decided to expand from their limited Internet presence to an actual retail location.  Thus, Possessions Recycled was born.

Bob travels to a couple thousand auctions every year, as far as Texas and Massachusetts, to buy the very best items.  He also purchases from estate liquidations, private individuals, those who are downsizing, reorganizing, real-estate staging or people who just want to unclutter their homes.

In a stubbornly depressed economy, Possessions Recycled offers a superior alternative to high priced retail chains.  In a day when consumers are much more careful about what they buy and the amount of money they spend you can take comfort in knowing that Possessions Recycled offers quality and selection at real value.  Chances are if you want a certain furniture item or household good then Possessions Recycled will either have it or can get it for you.

If you cannot take the items you want with you then Possessions Recycled can deliver your purchases inside and outside of the Charlottesville city limits.  In fact, they have customers in over fifty countries because they have the capability to ship any item worldwide.

As a result of the pride taken to offer the best merchandise combined with their personal friendly service, Possessions Recycled has a vast following of happy, repeat customers.  So, if you’re in the market for furniture, household items or anything in between and do not want to pay the inflated prices of retail chains, check out Possessions Recycled today.

Located at McIntire Plaza off Harris Street…just look for the funky colored buildings.
