Where to buy a rocking chair in Canberra?

Hello Rioters,

My mother’s well loved and used rocking chair has gone to its eternal reward. I would like to buy her a new one for Christmas but all the standard furniture retailers have proven fruitless.

Has anyone seen one anywhere on their travels?

I want a standard wooden type one not a cane one. (Have seen a couple of expensive designer Danish type ones but not looking to spend in the thousands). Thanks

Just updating my own post to thank the village for its help. I did try the baby stores (hadn’t thought of that so thanks) but no good sadly, and tried pretty much every furniture store in Canberra but they are just not made any more but thank you very much for the advice about Gumtree -Success!! My mother now has a lovely newish rocking chair under the tree for Christmas.

Hello there, just spotted this and remembered you. Hope it helps. 🙂

Have you tried whitewood warehouse? I got one from there, but it was a few years ago.

Try babies r us near the airport, they sell a reasonable range of rocking chairs, baby shops generally have them too.
