Abode - Retro & Vintage Emporium is a range of furniture created by Cornish social enterprise: RE:SOURCE who are part of the national drug and alcohol charity: Addaction. RE:SOURCE offers training and work placements to people from a variety of different backgrounds, including Addaction service users, to help them build confidence, learn new skills and gain experience.
Our popular furniture and gift shop, situated in the Bodmin Business Park, sells a range of collectable furniture in natural woods and hand painted finishes. All furniture showcased by the Abode Emporium are items that have been rescued from landfill and brought back to life by people in the local community who are looking to progress or rebuild their lives.
RE:SOURCE provides a safe and inclusive environment for people to gain confidence and learn new skills in a bid to reduce the effects of social exclusion in the county. The volunteers and trainees in the RE:SOURCE workshop learn a number of finishing techniques under the careful instruction of an experienced cabinet maker in order to get the highest quality finish; including preparation, sanding, priming, denibbing, paint application, wood reviving and finishing.
Abode - Retro & Vintage Emporium can be found in the Bodmin Business Park, Launceston Road, Bodmin PL31 2RJ.
