We read and hear a lot these days about recycling with an interest in maintaining a clean environment. Its known as going green. While you may be saving plastic, glass and paper for the local collectors recycle pickup day, there are other ways to re-purpose, re-use, and recycle. Have you just moved into a bigger home and exhausted your savings with the down payment and a costly moving bill? Did your soon to be ex back up a truck and clean the place out? Has that furniture you were renting for an exorbitant fee been repossessed? Why not consider recycled furniture? Have you checked with your local used furniture dealer to see what he has in stock that may work for you? Looking for a new bed for a child who has just outgrown a crib? Check out the local used furniture dealer. He may have a brand new one that someone purchased and couldnt use or one that needs painting or updating. What fun, it would be, to share that project with a child. Is your sofa sagging? New cushions, a new frame or the whole thing is probably lounging at your local used furniture dealer. The last time you shut the door on the refrigerator did it make a strange sound that make you think oh no? A clean fresh nearly new one may be on the floor at your local used furniture dealer. Or did the uh-oh come when you dried that last load of clothes and the drier made a sound that scared the cat? Check with your used furniture dealer! At a used furniture dealer you may find just used furniture, but if he accepts estate consignments, and he probably does, there is likely also a section of china, glassware, art, TVs, rugs and maybe even a few comforters and throws. Used means only one thing; someone owned it before you. Good antiques and vintage pieces are often discovered at a used furniture dealer. The sign out front may not say used furniture dealer.
