My roommate is moving out and taking a couple of key pieces of furniture with her (think living room storage/book shelves/TV stand). I’m looking to replace this stuff without breaking the bank, but I’m having trouble finding truly affordable (yet solid) furniture in the area. I’ve checked out some of the neighborhood stores but find myself totally priced out. I’m looking for a place that has used furniture without a crazy antiqued/vintage markup. Someplace like the former Ruff n’ Ready or a goodwill/opportunity shop that has a large selection of furniture. (And yes, I’ve looked at your classifieds and Craig’s List, but I’m looking for a retail outlet rather than classifieds listings.) There’s gotta be places around town that just sell used furniture with out the kitsch. Help?
