Do you have any used furniture that’s still in good shape? Throwing it away would be a waste and giving it away would not get you any profit. Instead of collecting dust, it’s time to collect cash.
What about those who recently got an unfurnished house or just wanna replace their worn-off furniture with attractive but inexpensive stuff? Why would you wanna spend thousands if you can get it for hundreds and it does the same thing, right?
Well don’t worry, you can just contact these guys and they’ll sell or offer the options for you.
Unearth is a business that collects and sells second-hand vintage furniture from those who wanna clear out their used furniture to those who want to buy affordable furniture.
We’ve recently talked to the owner of Unearth Store, Johnson Goh and he shares some of his ins and outs of the business.

Additionally, their business also contributes to a more sustainable future as they aim to reduce the waste in our landfills.
It all started with a breakup
From a breakup to a business, Johnson was like a phoenix rising up from its ashes.
During the first MCO, he went through a breakup with an ex-girlfriend who left a lot of stuff in his apartment. His ex wasn’t from Malaysia so he decided to sell it off, but selling those online was so mafan.
Despite having a digital background, I found it extremely troublesome where it took around 5 hours of work to sell a single item.Johnson Goh, Owner of Unearth Store to TRP
So, I bought big packing boxes and sent them out to my friends, where I asked them to fill it up with items they didn’t want anymore.
I started selling them, and started making a couple thousand bucks a month.
Then, another friend of his in the property space got stuck with a 100 service condo units of furniture. His firm got a contract to furnish the condos but the client pulled out due to the MCO situation at the time. So his friend was left with a lot of used furniture.
His friend asked Johnson for his help selling them as he heard about what he was doing. Johnson saw this as an opportunity and helped his friend. He managed to sell about RM200k worth of furniture within 2 months.
That made Johnson see a demand for these types of items and he thought of turning it into a proper business.
As I was figuring out how to replicate the same sale and profits, I borrowed a van and some warehouse space from a friend, set up a landing page, and started collecting from people’s homes.Johnson Goh, Owner of Unearth Store to TRP
And he’s been selling furniture and bulky items since.
What do they have?
In the past, the business accepted all different stuff but decided to concentrate more on furniture.
When asked about the weirdest thing they had to sell, the answer made us laugh.

That may be some of the reasons contributing to the focus on furniture and bulky items such as electrical appliances and exercise equipment.
From L-shaped sofa to exercise equipment, you can find your next furnishing at a very reasonable price on their Carousell page.
Some of the second-hand items are probably a bit worn but as long as it functions the same and is still in good condition, it does the job just fine.
Apart from helping the B40 gain access to affordable used furniture that is still in great condition, they also help provide meaningful jobs to those who need it.
Here are some of the examples of furniture and bulky items that they have:
