  • I bought my couch online. Just check out the manufacturer and their guarantees. If there is a baby furniture store nearby go see and feel the quality of that company's furniture then buy it cheaper online. I was happy with my couch

  • Yes! I bought my crib online (I wish I could remember the site) and it was great. I bought the rest of my baby furniture on ebay (from someone local - we picked it up) and got a fantastic deal on 5 antique pieces that we just had to refinish. We ordered an entertainment center from Overstock just last month and had a great experience. I think the key is to price shop, but also look at shipping and reviews of the pieces you are buying and reviews of the site. Poorly made furniture and lax customer service won't make up for a good deal. Good luck!

  • I bought baby furniture form JC Penny online. I kept the crib but took back the changing table and the dresser because they were made of pressboard and were total crap.

    If I were to do it again I would want to see it first then buy it.

  • I ordered my son's baby furniture online from Sears, but we picked it up in store.

  • Oh, the experience of ordering was good. However getting the items itself was a pain. They were not at the store when they were supposed to be. As a matter of fact, I believe they misplaced the order (luckily I printed out a receipt). Fortunately, I had ordered it months before his due date so we received it in plenty of time.

  • I bought 3 end tables that we now use as stools because they were too short for what I wanted!

  • sure I buy wood pieces from ebay, overstock, JCpenney all the time. Never any problems. I wouldn't buy a couch online only because I want to sit n it and see if its comfy
