Live in So Cal and need credit non EQ

I am buying a house in So Cal and want to pick up some furniture, a TV, and a few odds and ends. Does anyone know who I can go through to get decent credit with TU or EX (both in the high 600's on myfico). Current util is 0%  I keep getting EQ pulled and I have a serious mistake I am fixing on EQ that is killing my EQ score (around 620)
 
No lates in 12 months
charge offs (2-3) from 2001-2004

try living spaces... its through wells fargo..you can do it on line.(just goggle them)
i really had no credit so to speak and some old little collections dentist etc and last year i got $4000 got some real nice leather couches ($150 a month payment), it was interest free for a year then it would be a CRAZY 25% but I paid it off before then..just a few weeks ago so I'm waiting to see if it helps my fico any  : )
..can't remember my score they were pre fico days when i didn't know anything..but I'm sure my score were nothing impressive! cant remember who they pulled not experian ..but like I said all my scores had to have been pretty bad back then !
good luck  : )

whoa, I dunno about that, northern California is tons lovelier... (from my dim memories at age 11 or whatever it was)

OK, TJ over, at least on my part --

mickie08, I was under the impression that Experian practically owns California for credit pulls? (and I'm sure that your new home and neighborhood are beautiful! :smileywink: )

I live in So Cal and 99 percent of pulls for anything (CC, auto, etc.)  have been on my EX... what I wouldn't give for a TU or EQ pull!
