  • YES - pants, skirts, tank tops and sleeveless shirts, sweaters, jackets, wood furniture
    NO - underwear, shoes, socks, upholstered furniture, mattresses

    Pretty much the same as the others posting answers ...

  • Clothing wise, I refuse to buy undergarments, socks and shoes secondhand. Other clothing articles I will buy gently used though.

  • wooden furniture, like chairs or cabinetry or a table. i like to strip/restain/paint/restore old furniture and use it, sometimes, in unconventional ways.
    i will not buy anything else except for a 1-2yo used car.

  • I won't buy secondhand shoes, hats, undergarments or socks, but most anything else is fair game. Well, I wouldn't buy a secondhand toothbrush,
