The secret’s out! Source unique props of any type, from any era at The Bower.

09 June, 2010 by IF

The Bower is a unique source of household and commercial items that are one of a kind. At any one time we could house furniture, salvaged building materials and bric-a-brac from every era. From the kitchen sink to rubber duckies and chandeliers, 70's lamps and a never-ending supply of vinyl LPs – We've got something to inspire your scene.

We've worked with everyone from kids TV shows to hollywood blockbusters and food stylists, providing a crazy array of objects, furniture and materials to put the finishing touches on a variety of projects.


As an environmental charity we're dedicated to diverting household goods & building materials from landfill. That means finding homes for even the weirdest of donated goods. At The Bower we appreciate that many Prop Buyers, Art Directors and stylists are looking to locate such items, and have developed a prop-hire system specifically tailored to the film and TV industry. Items are available for hire at 25% of the already low price.

  • Open 7 days
  • Friendly staff dedicated to finding just what you're looking for
  • Loads of parking
  • A green approach to Set Design & Styling
  • Our non-profit status means you'll never pay full price!

Beyond our donated goods and building materials, we have a consignment section dedicated to the repair & restoration of items. We can't prop hire these but you'll find our member's prices don't break the bank. Here you'll find more shabby chic tables, brightly upholstered chairs, kitchen dressers, depression era hall cabinets, vintage row boats, cast iron pots, retro suitcases and the odd 1960s radiogram completely restored to working order.
