Where is all the "STUFF" from Pompeii?

In all the pics and videos of Pompeii, even the newly opened areas there is never any day to day items. Plates, chairs, tables, jugs, beds, :wink: clothing, etc, etc. I would have thought that all that stuff would have been preserved by the pumice. Can someone tell me what happened to it? thanks.
