BuoyandSail.ie is a new website brought to you by Leinster furniture , in our 5th year of operations now we are a husband and wife team in co louth , our current website www.thestoreroom.ie focuses on Rustic and industrial loft style furniture and collectibles
We have long had a love for nautical as well but we felt it needed its own home and wasn't the right fit on TheStoreRoom . We started our journey in our shed painting furniture for other people , we progressed into a small unit in a warehouse in duleek where we stayed for about 18 months dealing primarily in vintage and antiques . From there we moved to a building in Duke Street in drogheda , long associated with antiques and vintage and aptly the building was formerly known as TheStoreRoom which we had coincidentally rebranded our business too only weeks before . Unfortunately its very hard to find the ideal location for a business , too much parking meant bad access , no parking meant logistics troubles and of course rents and rates aren't very friendly to small business
This led us to the decision to go purely 100% online and in january of 2018 we left Duke Street and embarked on our online journey , there are advantages and disadvantages of course . Costs are down which we reflect in our prices as best we can which is an advantage , lack of display space for people to view and touch and feel is the big downside .
On to the products we chose and continue to choose today , we looked through literally 100s of suppliers and found the ones that are Ethically sourcing materials , recycling and reusing , use fairtrade workers in all cases and that supply good quality at a good price
Our social media stands healthy and active on Facebook ( 15k followers ) and Instagram ( just hit 10k followers ) we do update twitter for TheStoreRoom but we dont like the platform for business use its too fast moving . Thank you for your interest and we look forward to interacting with you
