Ready for Christ­mas rush?

IT'S AL­MOST here. Five days to go un­til the rel­a­tives con­verge.

Right now shop­pers are prob­a­bly wor­ried about whether they’ll have enough food for every­one or if their presents will be well-re­ceived.

As if this isn’t enough, many will also be stress­ing about whether there are enough seats, ta­bles and beds to house the steady stream of vis­i­tors.

Fear not, there’s no need to dash out and buy new fur­ni­ture, Week­end Shop­per pro­vides a range of dis­counted in­door and out­door fur­ni­ture.

Un­der the Home Fur­nish­ings – Gen­eral sec­tion, shop­pers can pick up a host of in­ex­pen­sive fur­ni­ture from stools to ta­bles, chairs and beds.

Some vis­i­tors may be con­tent with a mat­tress on the floor, but the fussy and the el­derly will need a bed base. Check out the Bed­room sec­tion for bar­gain bed bases.

A blue base in per­fect con­di­tion on six cast­ers sells for $50, a fold­ing metal­lic sin­gle bed with no mat­tress for $25 and $80 for a bunk bed frame that can be pulled apart to make two sin­gle beds.

The ever pop­u­lar Fu­ton makes an ap­pear­ance un­der the Liv­ing Room sec­tion. Fu­ton frames start at $30 and so do fold­out so­fas. De­pend­ing on the day, lucky shop­pers can find give­aways here too.

In the Din­ing Room sec­tion shop­pers will find sin­gu­lar chairs and din­ing suites. A pine wood, coun­trystyle din­ing ta­ble with five chairs is a ter­rific bar­gain at $150 or ONO. Both pine and wrought iron ta­ble and chair sets abound from as lit­tle as $50 for the lot.

Mov­ing to the out­doors, it’s just as cheap to fur­nish out­side as it is in­side. Un­der the Gar­den/Out­door area, whether it’s seat­ing or cook­ing, there is a sub­stan­tial range of used fur­ni­ture and a plethora of bar­be­cues on of­fer. Sec­ond­hand We­bers sell for as lit­tle as $50.

A set of seven direc­tors chairs in good con­di­tion, green with white slings, ‘great for Christ­mas ex­tras’, sell for $50.

Jar­rah tim­ber ta­bles and four chairs range from $85 per set.

And if it’s shel­ter you seek there are plenty of um­brel­las and shade sails on of­fer, too.

From the team at Week­end Shop­per, have a fab­u­lous fes­tive sea­son.
