Re: Used Furniture & Appliances: Do You Buy Them?
CL used to be a great place to get used things but now its such a scam and a place for people to get rid of straight trash. The few times I've taken the risk and gotten used appliances were only if they were from the "rich" areas. Because the stuff is more likely to be in super condition, like some bored rich housewife remodeling for the tenth time and getting rid of everything cheap. I once bought appliances from some folks in a mini-mansion because they wanted all new stainless steel so I got their whole kitchen cheap. I wouldn't buy anything that came from someone's house in "the wrong neighborhood". So just be aware of that.
