I took a risk & bought a liquidation pallet for £497 – I got £4.7k’s worth of posh furniture, I’ve never been so happy
A SAVVY shopper revealed she made over £4,000 buying liquidation stock of a recently closed furniture store.
Fashion and beauty found Roxi shared her stock haul in a YouTube video online.
She said: “I bought made.com furniture at auction for cheap, the popular furniture store recently went bust and I pretty much bought their liquidation stock.”
Liquidation return pallets are a box full of inventory which cannot be sold in the regular store.
Many stores have begun selling off their old backlog of stock for lower costs in an effort to make profit from unsellable items.
Many people even made a living out of refurbishing goods from return pallets.
But there is always a risk and some people are left disappointed with their pallets.
Roxi herself confessed she didn’t know what to expect before unpacking her haul.
She said: “The thing about auctions is you never really know what you’re getting. You only get a couple of pictures here and there of the listing but it never shows you what quality the items are in so you do take a bit o a risk.”
“In my case this is a massive risk because this could be a brand new piece of furniture that didn’t get sold or it could be customer returns, they could be faulty, they could be defective.”
Roxi said: “I spent £497 at auction and all the stock is worth over £4,000.”
Upon opening her pallet Roxi found she got three beds.

Two beds were Made.com’s Kano bed’s which were originally selling for £775.
Roxi also received the Liana Ash and Rattan bed as part of her pallet, which was priced at £749.
Roxi revealed she gifted the Liana bed to her parents.
The bargain hunter admitted she binned the sofa that came with the package as it wasn’t in good shape.
Roxi said she also bid on the Made.com Pavia Wide Shelving Unit in Natural Rattan with an Oak effect, originally priced at £575.
She said: “In the end I managed to get mine for £205 and I was really annoyed because some of the other ones were going for £150, but I couldn’t get those.”
Roxi and her partner put the wardrobe together and she said she was very happy with the quality.
Roxi also purchased a £24 Oak coffee table worth £269 which came in good condition.
The savvy shopper revealed she bought some other items that were from Made.com at auction.
