Is it at all possible to purchase a used baby crib?  We are in the Sacramento California area (Carmichael,CA).

Mabey at consignment shops. I have a used crib that a friend of mine gave me.

It's definitely possible.. Check at consignment shops. I wouldn't want to purchase a used crib personally, in case a piece were missing. Or if the specific crib were recalled.

It is possible... just not everyone supports it.. Some can be recalled, or have damage etc. its a risk.

In Idaho, the only place to legally purchase a used crib is on craigslist. Consignment shops and thrift stores aren't allowed to sell them.

Craigslist and if you have a Freecycle.com group in your area join that. You could possibly find one for free. If you purchase one make sure you do research on the model and type to make sure it's safe and I personally wouldn't buy one unless I see it put together first to make sure all pieces are there and it's sturdy. Good luck!!!

 just make sure all the parts are there, it isnt on the recall list, it is in perfect condition and meets all the government standards. I dont know if any of these places are near you, but I have sold some of my stuff to Once Upon a Child.

I'd say this. Or you could also look into goodwill and the Salvation Army.
