Kit & Caboodle

Kit & Caboodle buys and sells high quality pre-loved furniture from the warehouses of Algarve Express Transport and Removals in Almancil.

Set up less than 1 year ago the business is going from strength to strength and has expanded its display to over 500m2 of warehouse space. “The key for us is to keep the quality high and the prices competitive” said Sue Jenkins, Operations Manager. “Many Algarve Express clients are downsizing and cannot keep all of their furnishings. Some have purchased a property that came fully furnished that’s not to their taste or they are renovating and changing the interior.


Kit & Caboodle come along, assess the items and offer to purchase those that will appeal to their clientele. “With full house clearances we ensure anything we aren’t going to sell goes to local charities” said Philippa Taylor, General Manager. “We have a strong ethos of ReThink, ReCycle, ReUse rather than buying new and adding the old, often perfectly decent, furniture to the ever increasing rubbish piles. I feel a shift in peoples perception of used furniture, more and more of us now want to help the environment in any way we can and by buying good pre-loved items we are contributing.


When new consignments come in, key items like beds, dressing tables, dining sets etc sell FAST. “As soon as our newsletter goes out with a hint of what new items have arrived, we are immediately hit with responses asking us to reserve things. “Its always an exciting time for us” said Sue, “the following days are spent running around marking items as sold, updating the website and organising deliveries”. I strongly recommend clients sign up to this, its easy to do from the homepage of the website. This is the only way you get in quickly and grab the items you desire”.


There are plans this year to feature workshops in the warehouse on Upcycling, Repairing and Reupholstering along with videos giving advice on touching up furniture and creating things from pallet wood. Call in on a Thursday afternoon and you’ll even be treated to free afternoon tea!
