Thrift Stores/ 2nd-hand Furniture?
« on: June 15, 2008, 02:30:42 PM »
Good afternoon, everyone -

Has anyone any recommendations for good used furniture places in the area? I.e. thrift stores that stock furniture as well as clothes, or 2nd-hand stores? I need a few pieces for the apartment I recently moved into here in JH, and would rather spend money on a used or older piece of furniture that is sturdy and solid rather than on a new piece which costs the same but isn't of the same quality.

I appreciate your suggestions!

Thanks,

BK

Build it Green in Astoria has some furniture. There's also a Salvation Army in Astoria. Take the R train to Steinway. You exit right in front of the SA.

We used to have places like this on Northern but they have all closed down.  The most recent relocated to ditmars boulevard and a site on vernon boulevard and lic.  The place is called Nook n' crannie

29-18 ditmars boulevard
204-8399
n train to ditmars


47-42 Vernon Boulevard
706-6477
7 train to vernon jackson


If you go regularly you will find some nice pieces
