Best Place to Buy Furniture

Chinatown Salvation Army

If you're looking for something specific, or are the type to be picky about nicks, stains, and tiny imperfections, move along. But if you're seeking slightly-used-but-in-otherwise-fantastic-shape living, dining, and bedroom pieces for cheaper-than-cheap prices, the Chinatown Salvation Army might as well be Shangri-la: what looks and feels like acres of beds, bookshelves, tables, chairs, and dressers, in a number of different styles, for prices that won't even buy you a paperweight at a non-used furniture store. We're talking solid-wood bookshelves for ten bucks each, double beds for $40, a stain-free couch for $45. As with all thrift stores, it's hit-or-miss and may require some patience, but the payoffs can be huge.
