Moving days are coming fast
So we will be slowly moving over the next week. We're getting excited as we feel we're moving 'up' in the rental market; really, it's just a modest move into a similar property but with a bit more space and a lot more natural light. We're going to junk out most of our 'stuff' that we've collected over the past four years, so we're shopping for some newer things to furnish our place.
Which brings me to the meat of this post: have you got any secrets you'd like to share with us and the readers of this blog? We've been checking out the usual online sites for used stuff in town and the classifieds in the newspaper and while there is some selection, it's usually just someone else's unwanted junk that they would rather foist onto someone else than drive down to the Sally Ann.
I'd love to compile a bit of a resource list of good quality retailers in the used-furniture marketplace. I know there are tons around, but if you shop at any, do you go regularly? And are you happy with the offerings consistently? Do the shops stand behind what they sell? Any secret websites?
