About Kit & Caboodle

Meet the Team

Kit&Caboodle’s owners Rob Francis & Philippa Taylor will be pleased to welcome you to the offices of Algarve Express Transport & Removals in Almancil where you can see most of the items for sale on display. This additional string to their bow was a natural progression from frequent requests of home owners in the Golden Triangle area to sell on their well looked after home furnishings.

Kit & Caboodle is based in one of the 500m2 warehouses at the Algarve Express (AE) Transport & Removals premises. AE have many clients that are selling their properties, downsizing or moving to far away shores and no longer need their furnishings. Kit & Caboodle assess these items and those of quality sell to you from the Almancil premises. You don’t have to be an AE client though for us to look at buying your furniture.

Our Operations Manger, Sue Jenkins & Client Consultant Manager, Julie Rushman are on hand to help you with your buying needs. Whether its measuring up, putting a room together or organising delivery their help and knowledge is on hand to be used.

If you see an item on our website that you are interested in purchasing but are unable to come and look at it immediately then you can Reserve it for 48 hours with no deposit. After this time if you decide not to make the purchase it will be released back for sale.

During Covid we took Kit & Caboodle Online so you can now purchase directly from the website. Just add the items to your Cart, add your delivery address and Check Out. For those living in the Algarve, Algarve Express have given us excellent rates for delivering your items directly to your door or pop into the Almancil depot and collect.

We are passionate about re-using existing furniture and some items can see many more years of use by giving them a little TLC. In our Re-Cycle Centre we take these items and give them a new lease of life. Philippa has trained with Annie Sloan, the founder of Chalk Paint and along with her team of woodworkers, artists and upholsterers creates some unique pieces that are then for sale in the Warehouse.

There are Workshops available throughout the year so you can join in and update your own pieces at home. Check out the dates HERE or call in to the store for more information. You can even order Annie Sloan products directly from the Website.
