I have wandered thru a few second hand stores, and they are generally pretty dismal. It's mostly because there are very few products that are durable enough to use a second time. Any furniture not made of solid wood is not worth carrying home the first time. Even some steel furniture doesn't hold up well. Some people donate new clothing to charity stores and those items can be good bargains, but otherwise clothing is cheap enough that there is hardly any point in buying used stuff. Electronic components usually are phonographs, daisywheel printers, cheap stereos, and other obsolete things of doubtful usefulness, even if they still work and are not missing any parts.

Maybe I've been going to the wrong stores or something.
