  • Wood furniture yes, cloth furniture, no. You just never know what could be living in it.

  • We have bought used furniture in the past. Tables, chairs, etc. No problem after looking it over well

  • Depends on what it is. Table and chairs, bed boards, bookcases. Stuff that isnt cloth yes. Other then that I wont buy couches or mattresses.

  • Yes, I have. I bought a couple couches from my former neighbor before they moved out of state. Also, I bought a dresser for my kids' bedroom.

  • Yes, I never bought any upholstered pieces. Wouldn't feel good about that.

  • Yep, if its still in good condition and doesn't stink why not?

  • I would. It depends on the condition and the asking price though, of course. You can get some amazing steals on used furniture.
