Sources of secondhand furniture include online classified and auction sites, thrift stores, garage and estate sales and businesses. Friends and family members are another potential source of used furniture.
Craigslist and eBay are two common online sources for finding used furniture. When shopping on eBay, selecting local sellers is the best way to avoid excessive shipping fees. Local communities sometimes have swap pages on Facebook where users can post items for sale.
Businesses such as hotels often sell old furniture they no longer need such as headboards, dressers and desks. For those looking to furnish a home office, local companies sometimes sell old office equipment that could work in a home.
