At home in Ireland we have many 'Charity Shops' where good clean items, unwanted by others are sold. We also have 'car boot sales' which serve the same purpose of recycling for a price unwanted items.
Is there anything like this in Xiamen? We have just moved here and will stay for at least 6 months, hopefully longer, but do not wish to buy lots of new stuff for our apartment.
New stuff shouldn't be expensive but your best best is to find expats moving back to their home country. try http://www.xiamenexpat.com/index.asp
