I was talking with DH about buying clothing from consignment shops, and this is something that we will plan to do the next time we need new clothing. I used to do this all the time when I was single, but for some reason I haven't been to one in a long while.

However, we agreed that there are certain things that we definitely won't buy secondhand: shoes and underwear, for obvious reasons. I also won't buy used blue jeans--it sounds weird, but they become "molded" to the shape of the original owner's behind, and they just don't feel right when I wear them.

If I we had children, I'd also be reluctant to buy certain items because of product recalls.

So, are there any things that you refuse to buy second hand? Why?
