Insitu Manchester

Suzy Prince

This is second hand shopping, but not as you know it: In Situ covers everything from salvage to soft furnishings

Hit the busy Chester Road on the way out to Old Trafford football stadium and you’ll find the most amazing one-stop second hand shop in Greater Manchester, hands down. Formerly a pub, and in an area of Manchester known as ‘Pomona’, this pre-owned emporium spans three floors and covers 3,000 square feet.

Hands down the best second hand shop in Manchester

Got an old house to refurbish? Then InSitu architectural salvage is a dream come true, particularly if your dream (like mine) involves old cinema seating and lighting, huge trough-like washing basins, church pews, school desks, restored and powder-coated freestanding radiators and more.
