Dear Sir/Madam,

I am writing to with regard to the products your store offers that, I hear, are of great quality despite being second hands and come at surprisingly affordable prices. I'd like to order some much-needed furniture for my new apartment.

I've recently started renting an unfurnished apartment in the same town as your store. I've opted for an unfurnished apartment for the customary reasons- I lack the funds for a fully furnished one. Also, unfurnished apartments give one the opportunity to live in quarters of their own liking- without furniture of a suspicious sanitary state. A friend recommended your store to me, claiming that you've got used furniture that's in good condition at prices that would be relatively reasonable for my current financial status.

I'll be needing a relatively small kitchen unit, a single bed, a chest of drawers and a dining table that seats at least four people. If your electrical appliances are on par with your low prices, I'll need a microwave oven and an electric stove, as well. Please do forward me a detailed list of your appliances related to the once I've mentioned. Additionally, please include said appliances' precise prices.

I would highly appreciate your cooperation in this regard.

Kind regards,
